TRADER: The concept for @the_long_vacation came about whilst Ben was recovering from surgery, initially as a means to spend his time more constructively, but eventually grew to become something more fulfilling. “I experimented with a few different mediums and materials before finally settling on the process of hand painting reclaimed pallet wood. My work subsequently evolved to primarily focus on lino cuts which I hand print, mostly using hand made, recycled or wood free papers. Both of these artistic processes have allowed me to explore my creativity, to engage with others and have opened new avenues for me to enjoy and share something positive.
I draw my inspiration from a variety of sources however traditional tattoo art is a major influence. It is also important to me that my artwork has a low environmental impact however the most important aspect is for others to enjoy it as much as I do.” You can meet Ben and his amazing work at our next event on the 18th August set against an historic backdrop inside The Round Tower, Old Portsmouth. We all look forward to seeing you there.

TRADER: Created in 2015 by Portsmouth born resident Liam Coleman, @SpiceIslandChilli perfectly reflects his combination of passions for the fiery fruit and Portsmouth’s adventurous maritime history.
Having returned from travelling the street markets of Europe, Liam decided to build on his love for chilli peppers and embarked on his own voyage into the unknown. Beginning in his kitchen with just a saucepan and a blender, cooking and bottling would eventually yield enough stock to allow him to trial his products at local events.
Whilst navigating the challenges of upscaling his range, Spice Island Chilli now offers four delicious flavours inspired by the voyages of captains and admirals of the Royal Navy (circa 1580 -1805). This homegrown business enjoys a great local following and Liam continues to experiment in the kitchen with hints towards some fantastic new chilli blends on the horizon.
You can meet Liam and his Spice island Chilli sauces products at our 7th & 8th December Christmas Markets set against an historic backdrop inside The Round Tower, Old Portsmouth. We all look forward to seeing you there.

🔘Saint Michael's Mount🔘
⚫It is an island and mainland commune in Normandy, France.
⚫It is visited by more than 3 million people each year, Mont Saint-Michel and its bay are on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
⚫Over 60 buildings within the commune are protected in France as monuments historiques.
⚫The island was originally called Mont-Tombe but became known as Mont-Saint-Michel in the 8th century, when St. Aubert, bishop of Avranches, built an oratory there.
⚫It rapidly became a pilgrimage centre, and in 966 a Benedictine abbey was built there.
⚫In 1203 it was partly burned when King Philip II of France tried to capture the mount.
He compensated the monks by paying for the construction of the monastery known as La Merveille (“The Wonder”).
⚫The island, which was fortified in 1256, resisted sieges during the Hundred Years’ War between England and France (1337–1453) and the French Wars of Religion (1562–98).
⚫It became a state prison under Napoleon I (reigned 1804–14/15) and remained a prison until 1863.
⚫In 1874 it was classified as a historic monument and restored.

Fairytale cottage in Morristown built in the late 1800's! Originally apart of Fair Acres Estate, this is the carriage house . There is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home and a garage with a loft on 2.01 acres of property. No interior photos as of yet but if I find any I'll post them ! The prominent Charles Finney Clark bought the main home in the 1890's from Henry. E Woodward and that includes the carriage house. His daughter fulfilled her life long dream of commissioning the George Washington statue which stands in front of Washington's Headquarters. $630,000

🇫🇮Finlands Independence Day - 6th of December 🇫🇮 ⠀
Today marks 102 years since Finland gained its indepence from Russia in 1917. The newly won independence was followed by a Civil War, between the "Reds" and the "Whites. The "Whites", commanded by C.G.E Mannerheim, eventually won the struggle after around 3 months of warfare.
General Mannerheim went on to lead Finland during World War 2 as the commander-in-chief, eventually being promoted to Field Marshal and becoming Finlands president between 1944 and 1946. The first picture depicts Finnish soldiers raising the Finnish flag at the three-country cairn between Norway, Sweden and Finland on the 27th of April, 1945. Second picture depicts Field Marshal Mannerheim during a visit to Germany in 1942. The last picture is our poster of Mannerheim, which is part of our daily advent calender and is discounted 35% only today. Click link in bio to shop! #framehistory🇫🇮🇫🇮
