Creative Torbay Arts Market in Paignton on Sunday 14th June

Spent a busy weekend visiting two markets and four carboots!! I promise you that our normal pace of life is much slower but we're having work done at home (decorating, plumbing etc.) and it's easier to be out of the way!
Then, by way of relaxation, we went along to the Creative Torbay Arts Market in the Palace Gardens at Paignton. 5* to Paignton for such a lovely venue and event (although the litter in the surrounding streets was a bit of a disappointment).
Our friend Jo Stewart from Art Rooms opposite the shop had a lovely, colourful stall (sorry Jo no good pic. to post). The stilt walkers were brilliant and the musicians, artists and craftspeople all made it great fun and so colourful.
I've put in a link to show you the rest of the Creative Torbay events :)


  1. It looks like you had good weather, to top it all! What a great fair. I hope you have a relaxing week ahead...

  2. It certainly looks like a lot of fun!
    So...what did you find at the markets & car boots?
    I know, I know, I'm nosy, but I like to know!


  3. Hello Lesley
    I am glad to be up and running again as it means that I can catch up with your lovely blog which I have enjoyed reading. What a pity I didn't meet you at the Vintage & Handmade Fair.
