Busy, Busy Bumblebee...

Like the title says I have been madly busy over the past few weeks not 'just' doing the mum thing with two very energetic children but also being a manic PR lady for 'The Vintage Bazaar'. I cannot count ( well I can ..probably) the number of emails I've sent, phonecalls I've made ( using my posh phone voice obviously!) and letters I've sent to various publications in order to try and get the event some coverage, but it was all worthwhile! So far we have Sewhip, Homes and Gardens, Livingetc, BBC Homes and Antiques, Bath Life, The Bath Magazine, Bath Chronicle, Country Living online, Frome Times, Fosseway, Period Living online, Somerset Life, Frome Life ( a new magazine) and vintage fairs listings online to name just a few and I am still chasing up some others as well! BBC Homes and Antiques have also requested to have a stand at the bazaar itself so thats doubly exciting. Liz and I have been handing out postcards willy nilly to individuals and the larger posters will be going up this weekend. The image I've used for the poster is at the top of this post. I felt it gave the right vintage christmas vibe so I hope you all like it? If you would like me to send you any cards to do some advertising yourselves please let me know. Have a great rest of the holidays and remember to keep Sat. 30th October free on your calendar!


  1. Well done, Clare, you can never have too much advertising! Looking forward to it - and a rest once the little people go back to school next week!

  2. Phew! it does sound like you are busy! Well done to you. And I am sure you will get a really good number of people through the doors. I have already mentioned it to DH so hopefully I might be able to make it. It sounds fantastic!
