1950's Vintage Bowling


Number one son's favourite activity away from the computer, games console or TV is BOWLING. I was very excited to find that Gimme Shelter Vintage Boutique was holding a vintage and retro fair in a 50's bowling alley. I wasn't quick enough to book a stall, so went shopping and bowling instead. There was lots to see and do. I brushed up on my hula hooping technique and wondered why I hadn't got Mac booked for the busking. I'll ask Jamie next time. Everyone looked great and the stalls were bursting with stuff. We snuck out to have a wonder round Bristol and now we know to shop around for parking. We only found the 'park all day Sunday for £2.50 car park on the way home!!! We parked in the pay £7 for a few hours one :( good job I didn't take the van it's too tall for the NCP




Gimme Shelter Vintage Boutique is a permanent fixture in the Lanes bowling alley in Broardmead.




The bowling was great. Warning they have no side rails!!!! We usually have the rails up at Bowlpox it just make it less upsetting. We had to raise our games. It wasn't a problem for the couple in the next lane. I copied the man's method and got a spare!!

I bought fabric from this stall.


There were loads of clothes to look at and buy.

It was a tiring day (Sundays start early due to car booting) but a happy one.
