Margate Bazaar

Today was the first Margate Bazaar of the season,organised by  Roxanne from Rough Trade and Lady Tesla's Loose leaves and Mud. I have a selection of cards at  Rough Trade which has a good selection of vintage, upcycled goods and jewellry.

 Margate is gearing up for the summer, with the beach and new steps ready for the visitors and new and old shops opening for the Easter weekend and summer season. Vintage shops are a speciality here, with loads of shops in the old and main town to visit.

Unfortunately the weather is decidedly un Spring like. We had snow and sun and then stronger cold winds, which kept the visitors away. Though there were some hardy souls out after lunch braving the weather.

We had optimistically themed our stall with Spring in mind, maybe the next time we have a stall it will really be Spring. I had a few new painted and mixed media pieces and a new painting of Margate., plus the old wooden cake stand I'd painted with copies of antique blue and white plates.
