As I was walking down New Street, I noticed an interesting new shop with the sign ‘festive pop up bazaar‘. I popped in thinking it was only a little shop, but upstairs it was huge! Its run by the same people that do the Sutton Vintage Fair which I have previously posted on (here).  It had a mix of 35+ independent traders selling art, fashion, vintage, crafts, gifts & much more. It was really wonderful and I’m so glad I just…

As it was ‘tea for two’ I…
