I'll be at this splendid market near Shepton Mallet at the crack of dawn tomorrow!!
Kick off is at 9-30am, but it pays to arrive super-early as there is so much to see!

Including my stall!!!!
And here are a few bits that you'll see on there ...

An elegant 1930s wooden revolving bookcase, an absolutely gorgeous piece.
It can hold 30 of these classic Agatha Christie books, a perfect accompaniment!

An FA Cup money box!!
It looks great as a piece of footballing memorabilia, and is also handy for your loose change!!

A lovely Susie Cooper jam pot, which has her Dresden Spray design and dates to 1935. Check out the sleek and modernist shape of the lid! I've also added a free spoon, which is actually late Victorian.

The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour album from 1967. It has a gatefold sleeve and includes the original 24-page booklet.

A 1920s wooden cut-out of the famous cartoon character Bonzo the Dog. He was absolutely huge in the 20s and appeared on everything from comics to animated films. Here he is trying to charm a rather angry looking cat!

Something a bit different here. A promotional shop display poster and banner for the Simple Minds live video Verona from 1990. 
They were originally displayed in the window of the Our Price Records shop in Notting Hill Gate, London.

This is a close-up of Shepton Mallet train station from a framed 1934 Great Western Railway map of Somerset. It shows all the counties' stations, most of which probably don't exist anymore, so a great piece of railway history.

So if you fancy any of these, get yourself down to the Royal Bath & West Showground in Shepton Mallet tomorrow!!
