A Bank Holiday Brocante

Vintage Brocante

Frey and I were up and about early on May Day Bank Holiday, to drive down to the beautiful Larmer Tree Gardens for the Vintage Brocante. If there is one thing that will get me up early in the morning on a Bank Holiday (apart from a baby who wakes at 6.30am every day anyway) then it’s a Vintage Fair, they’re one of my favourite pastimes. Frey visited his first vintage fair when he was just two weeks old and slept through the whole thing, he’s still pretty tolerant of them so I shall make the most of that while it lasts!

I’ve never been to the Larmer Tree Gardens before, despite living less than an hour away from them, so I was looking forward to having a wander around too. We arrived bright and early, before the fair actually opened, and we were first in the queue. Peeking over the gate, I could see the beautifully tempting stall of blooms from Sprout and Flower… Which just set the scene perfectly for what was one of the most beautiful Vintage Fairs I’ve ever been to!

We were lucky to be first in the queue, as the fair got very busy very quickly, and I had Frey in his big pram so it was good to get around the lovely stalls while it was still quiet. We were lucky that the sun came out then, just in time for us to wander around the gardens.

The Larmer Tree Gardens were beautiful, the stage was just being set up for the day and they were gradually filling up with people. It was easy to imagine an amazing garden party being held there.

It was such an inspiring morning. I came home with this beautiful French Lavender in a vintage bread tin, which now has pride of place on my kitchen windowsill..

    Although to me it’s really tough to decide against jeans (jeans are the shopping hauls I enjoy the most), I quickly decided to go
    for the super skinny leather pants, because I’ve never tried on leather
    pants that fit so good. http://forum1905.com/member.php?action=profile&uid=263

    Pura balela… quem tem dádiva tem unicamente junto a desembaraço com o
    objetivo de planificar no fundação, objeção se for uma pessoa vulto espreguiçadeira,
    outra personalidade que jamais nasceu através de esse MERECIMENTO”,
    não obstante que nem cada individualidade esforçada no entanto que
    se dedica do que ânimo a treinar a Apresentar, acaba desenhando grande com mais consideração nem conseguindo derrotar
