Remembering the little 'gatherings' one can see at markets

by Charles Stirton May. 13, 2020 115 views

In Bath, we have a number of regular street and indoor markets. One of our family's favourite Saturday pastimes before the Covid-19 lockdown was to explore their everchanging offers and sometimes to buy something that attracted our attention. I particularly like the "gatherings" of objects on vendor's tables, both as items in themselves but also as conversation catalysts. In this post, I am sharing a few pictures of some 'gatherings' I noticed and which all gave rise to some very interesting conversations on provenance, interest, and history.
