On Saturday I enjoyed my first full day off since opening the tea room. Luckily, we have a couple of very good weekend girls who have worked there longer than me and really know their stuff; phew.
What luck that my day off coincided with the Vintage Bazaar in Frome; it's only held a couple of times a year and I wasn't able to go to the last one, so I was really keen to get along this time. Plus hubby and I were looking forward to seeing the re-modelled Cheese and Grain where the Bazaar is held (the last time we were there was to see Billy Bragg and the work was still being done.)
The first space you come across on entering the building is the much, much larger cafe area. The cakes looked fabulous but we wanted to check out the vintage offerings first so I snapped this quick photo and we moved on to the main hall.
The space feels much lighter, brighter and airier now, and there's a lot more room to move between the stalls, which makes the whole experience even more enjoyable.
Anyway, Frome is lovely and I would thoroughly recommend a visit there if you are in the vicinity (or even if you're not - it's well worth a bit of travelling time); if you can time your visit to coincide with the next Vintage Bazaar, then even better!
