Market Day

Hi folks!

We're definitely on for the Frome Super Market this Sunday. We had a trial run with the gazebo in our garden last weekend and I think things were looking pretty good. We planned the layout and took photos too so that we can set up more quickly on the day. It's a long time since we did a market (back in our chocolate making days) so we're really looking forward to it. 

It's a special extended market from 10am to 4pm so we'll have plenty of selling time. There are going to be a bumper number of stalls too and some interesting music during the day. Take a look at the market facebook page for a taster of what's coming. 

If you're in the area and can get to the market do pop along and see us. Anyone who mentions this blog will get a special 10% discount on our stall too.

Bye for now ...

Frome Super Market

Hi folks!

Last Sunday we went to Frome Super Market and despite the rain we had a great time. The market is held on the first Sunday of each month and stalls are spread over the whole town. There's a wonderful flea market with vintage, antiques and collectibles, delicious food at the Artisan and Somerset Farmers markets, a general People's market and a cute Suitcase sale on Catherine Hill.

We drank steaming mugs of hot chocolate topped with cream and marshmallows from Lucille's chocolate caravan. Definitely helped to keep out the chill.

Ate amazing Salty Dog brownies from Dark Matters - absolutely scrummy!

Between showers we had a good look around the stalls in the Flea market. I'm hoping to have a stall at the market on 1 December so this was a good chance to see what I was letting myself in for!

There were some fabulous stalls there so it'll be a challenge looking half as inviting. I've been trying to figure out how to display everything and have a huge pile of stock in my sitting room waiting to be priced up. I'm going to add some colour with my collection of vintage scarves which look great hung from these covered hangers.

And I'm really enjoying researching everything - including this fabulous 1950s/60s brooch. I was disturbed though to discover that the fur on this is probably mink so I'll be sending any proceeds from it's sale to the RSPCA. 

I'm waiting for confirmation that I can take part so I'll give you an update as soon as possible. Have a fun week everyone!
