Rag & Rummage Sale in Taunton

Lovely Saturday  morning saw us heading towards a village called Trull just outside Taunton, now I wasn't there when it opened arriving half an hour later, and my goodness I have never seen so many cars!! I should think the village had never seen such a successful fair in their hall!  I didn't at first have my camera, but Lizzie asked if I could take some photos so camera rescued from car and I hope I have done the fair justice.

 Elaine's stall from it looked lovely

Lizzie who organised this sale

  Donna Flowers stall

I met so many lovely stall holders, and I wished I had properly introduced myself to some as they were fellow bloggers!!

Now of course as well as my photo taking I couldn't leave without buying some lovely finds, to be honest there were so many lovely fabrics buttons, lace etc, you could have just emptied your purse (and I did!)

A pretty 1950s apron,

 A lovely piece of fabric such a beautiful  blue

A very pretty tablecloth

This was my major bargain a large French linen grain sack for only £10

This beautiful monogramme for only £4

It was a great fair so all congratulations to everyone involved and lets hope we have more in Devon and Somerset.

  7. oh Jill it was really lovely to meet you, even if I ddn't KNOW it was you!
    It was hectic all day, and some people did introduce themselves but I can't remember who they were and thats even more embarrassing. Wherever did my memory go!!??
    Hopefully there will be another fair at Trull later in the year so look forward to seeing you then. In the meanwhile blogland will have to suffice!

  8. What an amazing fair. i didn't even know this kind of event happened. I will look out for them now. Is this a regular fair?

  9. Your purchases look lovely. I wish I could find one of those fairs in the West Surrey / Hampshire area.

  10. Hi Jill, looks like a super day out, I love the monogrammed fabric! Take care

  11. Oh I wish I had gone. Yes fairs like that are a bit thin on the ground in the South West.

  15. Hi Jill, looks like it was a great event.These type of fairs are becoming ever popular and thank goodness, at least we now have somewhere to go to get these lovely things.

  16. Hi Jill,

    You asked me about the fair. We have several of them which are very much worthwhile! One of my favourites was the Home and Garden fair at Beeckestein too, but I believe the last time it was held was in 2009.

    I enjoy visiting the fair at Bingerden. I think you will like it too!

    Have a lovely evening,

    Madelief x


Thank you for your lovely words
