#Bridport #Vintage #Market

The Bridport Vintage Market is held once a month on the last Sunday of each month and Alan and I got to experience it first hand this month. It is a mixture of the kitschy, the quirky, the retro and shabby chic which makes any vintage lover go weak at the knees. It’s a great place to get a bargain and also a great place to meet people, do some networking and make new friends. The setting couldn’t be more perfect! Right in the middle of St Michael’s Trading Estate, not only are there plenty of stalls but the shops on the estate were open for business too and everyone has a marvelous time milling around, popping in and out of shops and meandering about the stalls. Even a pop up hair salon was up, run by the Hurst ladies, Linda and her daughter Emily who were all done up in their vintage wear and looking quite dapper themselves. Their lovely stall was brightly coloured and aptly named Route 66.

I went snap happy so you all could see the event:
