Lark Vintage and Mary Kilvert feature in the New York TImes

Excerpt from the New York Times mentioning Catherine Hill , Lark Vintage and Mary KIlvert, see excerpt below:

The Talbot Inn’s owners are planning another pub-with-rooms a few miles away in Frome (pronounced froom), whose cobblestoned St. Catherine’s quarter is becoming a shopping draw for all things retro and quirky. Among a fresh crop of boutiques: the three-level Lark Vintage, with its 20th-century couture and kitchen full of kitsch, and the atelier of the animal-loving artisan Mary Kilvert, who creates woolly sheep sculptures.

There’s a “suitcase sale” atop Catherine Hill on the first Sunday of each month (think of trinkets sold out of a secondhand pram) and a vinyl-only “mobile disco” in an old laundry truck nicknamed Donna Somerset — both part of the new Frome Independent (March to December), which sees thousands of people flood car-free streets for everything from regional ciders and Cheddars to origami-paper bow ties.
