Exciting News!

Some of you may recognise these delightful ( and pretty famous!) green shelves? They belong to the lovely Liz (the washerwoman) whose stall is a usual haunt for me at various fairs including Jayne and Michele's 'Vinatge and Handmade Fair'. Well, a couple of weeks ago Mr Darling and I were on our way to Shepton Mallet to visit Niki's shop and were chatting about how it was a shame there wasn't a vintage fair in Frome and well, it got me thinking. I thunk and I thunk and while I was thunking I visited Liz on her stall at the Shepton Antique fair and we had a chat and I thunked some more...and now there will be a fair in Frome because Liz and I are going to run it!! Oh yes indeedy we are and we're very excited about it too..pop it in your diaries..'The Vintage Bazaar' on Saturday 30th October at The Cheese and Grain in Frome. There will be more information and a list of lovely stallholders soon...........
