I was hoping/planning to do a few more outfit posts this week, as well as some DIYs and makes... however, I've come down with some horrible illness (it's like tonsillitis, except I don't have tonsils anymore) rendering me useless for a few days. I battled through last night to enjoy a lovely dinner with my dad & Judith, and an AMAZING Willy Mason gig, but now all I can do is lie in bed and try to get better...
But I can share with you a lovely day I had last weekend! On the first of December, Bristol went MENTAL with Christmas fayres. I'm sure there were more, but I managed to go to six! As you can imagine I was exhausted by the end of the day...!
The first two I went to were in local churches. Wonderful Sophie from Crown&Glory was at the Lovely fair (which as you can imagine was full of handmade loveliness) and my housemates had a stall down the road at St Aldhelms, which had more of a raffle vibe.. still, I bought a book for 20p!
I then walked into town as I'd heard about a vintage market, and I was not disappointed! There were a few stalls in the sunshine on the harbour side, and the rest were in the spiegeltent (which is a really fun word to say) I was being very good and trying not to spend any money. I bought some delicious lunch and watched the entertainment for a while. It's also on on the 8th if you want to check it out!
As I was leaving, I bumped into my friend who told me about three more fayres/markets, and they were all quite nearby so I had a look at those too! A record fair at Colston Hall, a few little stalls in the museum, and - probably my favourite - Christmas Steps!
It was such a lovely day, and really got me feeling festive!
Have you been to any Christmas fayres yet?
I really really regret not buying this record, purely for the amazing cover! When I saw it I thought, "that is how I wish to be."
