Bath Christmas Market.

I made a quick dash today, through the heavy rain showers, to visit the Bath Christmas Market. It is next to the Bath Abbey and is similar in style to the German Christmas Markets, with little wooden chalets selling decorations and various handmade crafts. There were some beautiful hand made soaps, candles and festive foods, as well as pretty Scandinavian heart decorations and primitive folk art style wooden Santas and snowmen.

It is on until Sunday 10th. I would like to have visited in the evening, because I think it would have a better atmosphere with all the fairy lights lit-up - I could also have some mulled wine then too!
Loved this mirror, but it wasn't for sale!
I did buy three of these 3 for the price of 2 in Laura Ashley! I think they will look pretty on our Christmas table with some evergreen branches and berries.


  1. Hi Niki, Bath is a wonderful place, you're lucky to live so close. I imagine the lights at the Christmas Market will look beautiful. What a shame that mirror isn't for sale - I LOVE it! Clare x

  2. The area you were at is beautiful and glasd you founf a few things to buy. I am sure that the lights would have looked so nice and the wine would have been so good. ....

  3. what beautiful marakets...and I love those cups and saucers...nel

  4. Another intersting place to shop for Christmas treats...I'm with Clare...that mirror is yummy..too bad it wasn't for sale.

  5. Scandinavian heart decorations??? Oh, I would have loved to see them! (As you my know, I am absolutely fond of any kind of hearts).
    How nice that you have Christmas marked in the UK, similar to the German ones.

  6. The market looks great. I've only been to Bath once and really loved it. You've made me want to go again. Love the mirror as well.


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