The town of Frome is well known for shops selling vintage goods. We went along to one of their vintage fairs to see what was on offer.
There were some tempting packages of materials for makers,
beautifully co-ordinated fabrics, buttons and trims
and the items that could be made from the contents of the package.
On a another stall small pieces of old fabric had been used as a decorative feature on new cotton bags.
and another displayed only small squares of fabric suitable for patchwork. They did'nt look particularly 'vintage' to me.
What did I buy?
A Liberty varuna wool skirt. It was finely pleated, but not after I had taken it home and washed it!
No complaints for the price of £7, even if it does have a few moth holes!
I also bought, for £8, this 1930's bed cover with it's strange period design. It is just the thing in my daughter's bedroom as a dust cover over the bedding.
