Braving the showers for Flea market finds!

So this morning it was time for The Giant Flea Market at the Bath and West Showground in Shepton Mallet! I have learnt from experience, that it is worth getting there early as the queues are huge.

The weather forecast wasn't good, so I wasn't surprised to see that this field, usually full of stands, was empty!

It was grey and miserable and I knew what I was looking for, so I quickly looked around the outside stands, just to see what was around. I then went back to those that interested me, then dodged the showers inside.

This stand always catches my eye - she really makes an effort, is always busy and sells her things in good condition, at a reasonable price - check out her website

I wish I had a bigger house - but I already have 2 lovely mirrors in storage as I have no room.

I did buy these 2 lovely frames £25 each or the 2 for £30!

I also got this bedside table for £20

And finally this trolley for my studio for a bargain £22
Not a bad morning's work!

The next Flea Market is on Easter Sunday and as the weather improves, so the number of stands increase. It really is worth a visit - but do get there early - as I left at at 11am there was at least a mile long queue backed up to the roundabout, full of cars waiting to get it!

It's on about 6 times a year - the next one is on Easter Sunday 24th April then not until August 28th then October 9th and finally December the 11th.
It is usually very good - well worth a visit.
