Well Saturday at the Vintage Bazaar was no exception the stalls were all set out and the doors opened at 9.30am, there was a queue forming outside and it was lovely to see people with purses at the ready and shopping bags over their arms. The VB is a big event in Devizes and has a great following especially with people who not only love vintage but live it too.
The two gentlemen in the photo were very dapper and dressed impeccably it was so lovely to see.

There was so much choice on offer. There were toys, china, books, fabrics, buttons, threads, monograms and tiny bits of lace and stunning collars as well as small bits of furniture, quilts, eiderdowns and clothes and hats.
Everywhere you looked there was something wonderful on offer for the eager vintage lover. The other thing that I must say about this event is that everybody takes care with their stall. Each one is set out with such beauty and they all look so inviting....
The vintage bazaar is organised, run and marketed by two lovely ladies, Liz and Clare. They both have have stalls there and attend lots of other vintage fairs.
The lovely Liz who not only co runs and sorts all of the vintage bazaar events but travels the length and breadth of this country and attends vintage fair nearly every week. She and her husband Jack run the washerwoman and vintage French linens business.

Also at Devizes were Cowboys and Custard selling vintage toys and games. Jane the book lady was there with wonderful books to tempt you with along with inspiration craft packs that she had made from old books and pictures that no longer could be used for purpose but great broken up for crafters of paper.

I met for the very first time two ladies who are pictured at the top of this blog dressed in forties dresses. Rachel (in the blue dress) owns Top Tottie Vintage and Simone (pictured in the burnt orange dress) owns The wardrobe mistress. There were lots of people at this stall as they had 1940's hats, gloves, clothes and so much more!
|Also attending the VB were Laura and|
Phil with their wonderful selection of
ART DECO ... Do not forget that they
themselves are hosting a vintage fair called

26th April .....
|Elaine was there with a stall brimming with goodies.... This is the lady who|

There is a beautiful square in the middle of the town and trees and church. You could never be bored there. We in fact did not leave until 8.30pm as we had dinner with friends after the fair.
If you can get to a vintage bazaar, I highly recommend it. The next one is in Frome on the 18th April and is on my calender ... This wonderful, well organised event is a NOT TO MISSED occasion!
