Something for everybody at The Vintage Bazaar.

 Clare and I are now attempting to put our feet up for 5 minutes after yet another busy day at The Vintage Bazaar in Frome. Our wonderful stall holders did us proud yet again with a fabulous range of stock displayed in the most imaginative and eye catching way.

 There was certainly something for everyone yesterday in The Cheese and Grain in Frome. It was National Vinyl day and that didn't go unnoticed!

 Debbie's garden stand was stunning and I know she was busy all day.

 Emma's stand (Box Mad) with our very own Singing Starlet on the stage.

 As you can, the pictures speak for themselves....

 So, a big thank you to all the staff at the Cheese and Grain, the stall holders and all the customers who came, smiled, laughed, spent and complimented us on another successful Vintage Bazaar. Our next event in Frome is on Saturday June 30th.  The Giant Rag Market which will be a slightly different type of event, but hopefully just as popular. Details will be posted here in the next few weeks.
