Bath Markets & Inspiration!

Yay! After a couple of markets requiring us to whizz up and down the M4, we’re delighted to say that in 3 weeks time we’ll be back at the Bath Vintage & Antiques Market – Sunday July 26th.  It’s our first local market in a while, and we’re really looking forward to spending the day in Green Park Station chatting away to people in search of a bit of mid century style.  We’ve got chairs a-plenty, the odd table too, not to mention a fab 1979 Ercol studio couch… come down and see us!  (If we’re next to the record stall again, you’ll be able to spot us doing bad/great dancing…)

Next week there’s another exciting little project about to get underway: I am off to the Upholstery Workshop in Salisbury, because I want to make brilliant chairs to brighten up people’s homes, and I truly believe there’s always more to learn…I’m taking this beauty:
