Bank Holiday Weekend- Sunday 26th May
Bridport Vintage Market.
I have spent the weekend back in Dorset with family and on Sunday we visited the nearby town of Bridport where they run a monthly Vintage market. It is one of my favourite places to browse as there are lots of stalls and quite a few permanent shops selling a variety of vinatage items. I have been a couple of times before where I picked up a pewter mug and a retro umbrella. On this occasion one particular stall had a selection of lovely fabrics on display and I was especially drawn to a 1950's Heals inspired woven length of cloth. I knew I had to have it and was so happy to discover it was only £10! My plan is to weave up my own samples using this fabric as a starting point for inspiration. I love the geometric design and would love to re-interpret it using more contemporary colours and different yarns. I also picked up two smaller pieces of woven cloth from the same stall for only 50p each.
