Montpellier Day, Cheltenham 

Montpellier Day, Cheltenham 

Yesterday the sun actually shone all day (hurrah) and peopled flocked to the annual Montpellier Day held in the Montpellier ‘Quarter’ (let’s go Parisian here) of Cheltenham.

Stall holders lined the pretty streets and pop-up bars appeared in front of their premises to lure the sun worshipping, shopping visitors in for a cheeky Mojito, Pimms or Pint!

A display of Vintage cars were on display to appeal to all manner of car enthusiasts and even me!

This was definitely my favourite car of the day although I’m not entirely sure what it was…


And a local brass band kept everyone entertained …


Amongst many others, the guys from The Lucky Onion were on hand to tell us about their custom beauty brand 100 Acres... ..’‘beautiful smelling products made in the English countryside using natural botanicals and essential oils” …these are for body, bath, hair and hands and there’s even a new candle concept around too…check them out, I love the packaging. 

Pop up bars from Harry Cook & The Montpellier Wine Bar lined the streets for the all important refreshment…  

Hay bail meetings

I also bumped into the guys from Collett & Holder, an AMAZING ONLINE STORE founded in 2015 by partners Graham and Glyn.

Having both had a background in the fashion and consumer industry, with a keen eye for style and attention to detail, and wanting to share their ideas the couple started a blogsite to talk about things they loved and why they loved them…..

With regular features on Fashion, Food, Art, Interiors and design, the blog proved to be a success and quickly grew from a handful of followers to an interactive community. Thanks to their readers, whom often asked the question “where can I find that stuff?” the duo were inspired to take the plunge to launch their own online store full of the unique, fun and unusual.

Collect & Holder is an emporium for unusual and unique products, where you can explore and find new and vintage pieces that have a story. Handpicked by the guys, they have searched the globe and created an edited selection of beautiful quality pieces for your home, your family and friends and not forgetting yourself!

You must check out their website for a great selection of – Stationary & Crafts, Jewellery & Accessories, Fragrance, Homewares, Kitchen, Bath & Body products

Here’s a peek at what you might find …these gorgeous candles and beauty products from Swedish brand – Terrible Twins and the very cute wash bags from Ny – Lon

It was a great day out and I’ll be back next year for sure.
