The very first 'It's Darling!' Fair..

It's Darling!

Well after 4 months of hard work and planning, 17th July finally rolled around, and from 7am, the Brunswick Room at The Guildhall was a hive of activity with 21 stallholders making their space beautiful - and what a fantastic day we had!

We even had our own lion at the door, seeing in the visitors, courtesty of stallholder Nicky Snow.

And with thanks to Alice and her young man, who spent most of the day spreading the word throughout the centre of Bath, our visitors kept on arriving throughout the day..

And our stallholders certainly didn't dissapoint, the room looked absolutely beautiful, with vintage treasures and handmade delights tempting you from every direction.

Well done to Lisa, who won the 'It's Darling!' blog giveaway which we ran at the end of June, and collected her goodies from the Purple Sparkle stall on Saturday.

And huge huge thanks to everyone who made the day possible, all of our fabulous stallholders, and of course all of our visitors - we will see you again soon!
