Bank hols

Had a busy evening frantically buttoning my showjumping quilt in readiness for The Bridport Vintage Market on Sunday. I was really pleased with the finished article along with it's matching bunting, mini cushion, bags and memo board. Funnily enough I put two cushions from the same fabric in my shop last week and sold them straight away. As soon as I arrived at Bridport another stall holder told me she'd bought the horse cushions along with a couple of my other items and had them on her stall.... opposite me!

Just time for a quick photo of my table before the wind got up and my attention turned to weighting everything down! There were some great stalls there and I caught up with a few people I'd not seen for a while. Delighted to meet Hen from the Henhouse blog http://henhousehomemade.blogspot.com/ who was lovely.

Unfortunately there was a rather wet end to the day as rain stopped play and we bundled everything into the van as fast as we could! Monday morning was spent restocking the shop with these sleigh beds and French cot

another cot we promptly sold

and the horsey items

before we headed of to this nice house...

Home of Barford Farm Icecream Garden
http://www.barford-icecream.co.uk/ and well worth a taste! You have free run of the beautiful farmhouse gardens whilst you enjoy an icecream from the vast list of flavours. This is where I became a bad blogger and demolished half my ginger and cream icecream before remembering "I blog now. I need to to take a photo!".

They didn't last long and the sun even shone for a bit. We promised ourselves we'd have to make another visit soon (to try the other flavours obviously).


  1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a lovely comment.

    So many outdoor markets end early with stock being thrown in the car quickly. I've still got two more outdoor ones this year and I'll be taking all the plastic groundsheets along. Looks warm, dry and gorgeous in your shop though.


  2. Hi Ellie, I am pleased to say that you have 2 tickets for Shepton Mallet this weekend. Just give me a call when you arrive and I will run down to the gate with them (my stall is very near the entrance) Lizzie (0787 942 8654) What sort of time wil you arrive do you think?

  3. It was great to meet you too, your stall looked lovely, I am so impressed you had a whole bed there. Your little girls are delightful, too. Hope to catch up with you there again, weather permitting!
