Nunney Street Market and Fayre

Yesterday we spent a wonderful day out in a typically English village in Somerset.

Every year, Nunney holds a village Street Market and Fayre. There are over 100 stalls, a craft fayre, live musicians and entertainers- and, yes, there were Morris Men!!
The church opens up its' bell tower to anyone wishing to climb to the top, for the stunning view of the village and its' castle.

Later an elderly gentleman asked if I would mind taking his photograph outside one of the little cottages. He then went on to say that as a child from Bristol, he had been evacuated to Nunney during World War II - the village has changed little since then!

The stalls were fascinating, with plants, antiques and collectables, handmade items, and foods.
Here are my purchases from the day...
The small box holds a set of napkin rings, each handpainted with a cottage garden scene. Two powder puffs. Some pretty vintage china and some old books. A flue cover with an angel on it and not shown, two old wooden airers.
Fab souvenirs from a great day out.


  1. Oh, such lovely things you find! The little pink pitcher is just adorable. Lovely! :) And all your pin cushions looks so great, I like the fabric with roses on. :o)

  2. What a wonderful trip that must have been.
    I like your purchases

  3. What a lovely little village. Miss Marple is shown on Swedish TV right now. I love watching it because of the pretty villages :-)

  4. Well done Niki, some lovely little treasures there :-)


Thank you for finding the time to visit me...
