'You're not meant to be here!' ;-)

Yesterday brought a very important visitor!

It also brought to an end my thoughts of EVER re - training to be a midwife!!

Meggy...what a little treasure! ;-)

It made up for the disappointing day on Friday

when Mr S took the day off so that we could go to the Retro Romp!

Well, that was a total waste of time!

I will be afraid to show my face in Torquay, for a long time to come!

Oh dear!

In short..

Retro Romp

(Supposed to be opening at 11am)

We arrived at just before 11.30 to find that there were still stalls being set up.

The girl on the desk said, 'Do go upstairs, there is a lot more.

We did as we were told, only to find one seller only with bags and bags

of stuff all over the floor.

''Retro Rip Off!''

...we said to the girl on the desk and at that point someone 'more

important' came along and told us that

we should, 'Come back tomorrow'.

That made us mad...and thus ensued a...

Retro Rant!

'You advertised it as a three day event, opening at 11am', we argued!

'Well, come back later', replied she.

'Not good enough..!' we retorted!

'We want a ...

Retro Refund!!

(I mean...I really wanted to say..

'Do you realise who we are....we are Mr and Mrs Snippets!!)


If you are going to advertise something to start at 11am on a Friday,

then in my opinion you should ALL be ready for that opening time!!

I don't care that it was probably very good as the weekend progressed and that

it was probably very good for the evening events...the fact is that

it was rubbish when we arrived and that's all I can judge it on!!

Mr S and I made a hasty exit.....laughed our heads off at the useless organisation

and attitude...looked at each other

and I said, ' What now? '

No prizes for guessing where we ended up!


'You're not meant to be here!' said a friendly face as we wandered

through a certain market!

It was a day when I window shopped only as I wasn't meant to be there!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend ;-)

Some people are just hopeless at organising events.

Love those crown imperials.

haha Meg is so peaceful in the first few pictures!
I heard today the romp stayed open til 5pm on Friday as so many sellers were late arriving!

NOOOOO! That is dreadful! I hate disorganisation of any kind!!! I went to Priors Marston Vintage and Handmade fair on saturday - after being mugged for £2.50 each entrance fee and being obviously disabled and proceeded to find that everything past the payment point was inaccesable to me - the toilets and tea rooms were up two flight of stairs - all stall were up or down steps - it would have been an idea to let me know before taking my bloody money! I felt really upset and embarrased and very nearly cried!

'I say, what a jolly poor show!' (said in retro voice).
What a shame, but looks like you managed to make the best of it! Meggy looks adorable in the first photos, and good of her to dissuade you from re-training...

Your Retro Romp sounds like my recurring nightmare about the V & H.. Turn up to set up and I discover I have forgotten my stock and we have five mins till opening time! Arrrgh!
Happy Belated Grand.Mother's Day.... Hope it was a happy one.
