Green Park Friday!

So it was up bright and early for me and off to Green Park Station Market in Bath for the first of their Green Park Fridays. They're trying to create a buzz about the place, the first Friday of every month, and get a whole load of stallholders together who sell vintage and handmade. If anyone wants to join in, then get in touch with me and I can give you the details.

Teacups on the stall today

I've sold there on Fridays before and gave up on it because it was so quiet. However, with a few more sellers today, there was more of an atmosphere, especially in the morning, including a group of Japanese tourists, scurrying after a man with a flag. They swarmed round the stall at one point and I thought that the Mulberry handbag I covet so much could soon be mine. In fact I only sold a locket (a nice one though), so only enough for a Primarni bag this month.

And as is the way with my business, I ended up buying china today, not just selling it. Last week, Soleil who was looking after the stall for me, bought this lovely blue and white Victorian trio.

Today I ended up buying this lovely little milk jug and sugar bowl.

I'm also selling a gorgeous coffee/teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl for Becky Amesbury at the moment too - it's Meakin. So if you like any of the above or below,  email me.


  1. It sounds like a good idea,I hope it takes off :). I have spent years and years with stalls at Green Park and seen it go through lots of managers:)Love your china, gorgeous photos :)

  2. Thanks Tamsyn, I hope Green Park Fridays takes off too. Hard to know what will happen but they did do a lot of promotion with the Tourist Board and I noticed a lot more visitors there on Friday. Still, only time will tell. Glad you like the photos! Will we be seeing you at "It's darling?" :)
