two tales of one market

Laura: Could anything be better than a day spent catching up with the lovely Annie? A day spent catching up with the lovely Annie whilst mooching around the Bath Vintage and Antiques Market, that's what! So much prettiness to browse and so many vintage goodies to lust after! Of course our favourite stall was the emporium of vintage craft gorgeousness that was Canvas and Cloth. It took enormous self-restraint to for me leave with just a card of buttons. D and the boys headed straight for Mrs Stokes and her pop up tea room, where they were placated with yummy cakes until we were able to finally tear ourselves away and reward the little ones for their patience with a trip to Victoria Park. The sun shone, the company was fab (and much missed!), the tea came in vintage teacups and the bunting was handmade. Perfection!

Annie: The trip to the Vintage Market in Bath was such a treat-so many lovely things to look at. The old tools and jugs and homewares as well as plenty of crochet blankets and handmade goodies. The stall that I think we were both particularly taken by was the lady selling all the sewing goodies. All those reels of cotton drawing you in, and then lots of beautiful buttons and embroidery patterns and tea cozies. So much to touch look at and assess luckily they have a website so I can keep going back to check in.

The loveliest thing is just being able to browse around all the bits and pieces, gain ideas and inspiration from everything on show. These were some of my favourites.
