Last week I followed in the footsteps of bloggers Artemis and Leigh and visited Sunbury Antiques Market at Kempton Park Racecourse. It was the perfect week to go, as the clocks had just gone back, and so it wasn't too much of a chore to get up at 6am.
It was a fun morning out, and there were tons of stalls, but I didn't see anything too original and not much in the way of bargains. However, I did buy a cake stand for £6, and when I went to my local antiques shop in the afternoon, theirs were selling for around £14, so I suppose mine was not too expensive. There were some stallholders who had come from France, and theirs had the most interesting items (old suitcases, vintage letters and shoe lasts, for example.) And Artemis seems to find amazing things there, so it may just have been an off day.
Today I am guest blogging at SF Girl By Bay, where I have shared better photographs of the items I nearly bought, so please go and have a look...(in case you were wondering, it was the old lockers in the bottom photograph which caught my attention, I never said I was much of a photographer!)
