My husband was to be found in this area practically all the time and is proud to say he had a slice of nearly all of them! ( where he puts it I really could not tell you! .. Laura and I had a conversation whilst laughing about 'how can he eat like that and not be round like a pudding'!! ... )
Suddenly I spied a beautiful stall and really unusual in the fact that this lady only sold one kind of product... But oh my! vintage picnic baskets. They were beautiful. Each one different in colours and with all that you needed for a great day out .. just add your food
and drink with a something to sit on. Some were in actually baskets and some in colour picnic sets of different eras. Apart from taking the photo's I just had to look at them all. She says on her card that they love picnics as a family and they all have the same ingredients .. fun people, fantastic food and a special location which will create the ultimate relaxing day for special memories. All you need to do is buy one of these and pack it up and voila! I think we can all agree these look wonderful....
I found a beautiful stall selling just vintage suitcase. This was the work of Malc Stacey who was dressed as a railway guard.( he did not want his photo taken particularly so I had to respect that) but he looked fabulous. Malc explained that he was given alot of these antique cases and trunks. Then he would clean and mend them and go to all these types of shows with them.
Moving along there were two lovely ladies called Louise and Sam and they own Sammi-Lou Vintage. There stall had some beautiful vintage embroidered clothes, china, laces and all sorts of
By now the hall was brimming with people and so I decided to join my husband for a piece of cake and a coffee (if he had not eaten it all) I found him by the cakes... Yes and I choose a piece of the chocolate cake which was outstanding. He had a chelsea bun and some lemon drizzle cake and I had a little bit of each to try. Honestly it is the best lemon drizzle cake I have ever tasted!
I had a few more stalls that I wanted to go to including Blue Lias Vintage who had some really beautiful china. I ended up buying three coffee cups and saucers that were too pretty to leave behind.
Wandering along there were there was a lovely stall with beautiful vintage goodies on there, from starfish in a jar to an antique radio. She has a shop in Weston-Super-Mare. The address is 22 Baker Street!... honestly and the postcode should you not believe me is BS23 3AE. There was some amazing things to tempt people on this stall and so unusual.
Stefanie was there with her fabrics ( she sells a lot of vintage liberty fabric) and she has some ribbons and notions as well.
