On the Sunday morning of my wellness weekend in Bath, I visited the Green Park Station Vintage Market. I took a taxi straight from my hotel to the fair, which runs from 8:30am to 4pm every Sunday and trawled around with my small suitcase, looking for a souvenir to take home.
As you can see from my photos, the fair is really quite varied and I couldn’t help but swoon over the second-hand furniture (think of all the upcycling potential!) but had absolutely no way of taking the plant pots, chairs and mirrors back with me to London. Instead, I spotted a bright copper bowl at a French vintage stall, and quite literally like a magpie I swooped in after it. I’d been looking for a small jewellery dish to hold all my favourite accessories, and it was just perfect, as well as a more ethical option than buying shop-bought. I will have to give you a flat tour at some point…
If you’re like me and love a good vintage market, this is the place to go when in Bath. However, there’s little to be said for their garments, so don’t go expecting to pick up a good dress; instead, you’ll end up needing a giant swag-bag to bring back items for your home.
And, when you’re hungry, why not pop into Beyond The Kale in Green Park Station too?
