Wherever I lay my hat...
I've managed to get a last minute stand at the Bridport Hat Festival on this Saturday 17 September. The Festival runs for the entire weekend with lots of events from hat-making to musical, and promises to be a whole lot of fun. It is organised by the owners of the wonderful retro style Snooks Hatters in Bridport, Dorset. Do check out the websites by clicking on the names. I wanted to attend the inaugural event last year but it clashed with another date and for the usual memory-playing tricks (!) I had totally forgotten to enquire and book for this year. Phew!
My stand will be in St Mary's Church Hall from 10am - 4pm. The hall is at the lower end of South Street, (N.B. not West Street as I wrote originally) where on Saturdays there is a regular open-air antique and bric-a-brac market along the length of the roadside. I shall pile it high with millinery to delight the eye and flatter the visage of every young maid and elegant lady - with the odd titfer for milord. There's also a tea-room for a relaxed cuppa in between all the excitement.
See you there?
