what we found in the market...


So as promised...here are some of the things we bought at the market (we also bought some jewellery bits, a rocking chair and a wooden arm chair for re-upholstery).


I love this square tin with glass front, very usefull me thinks!



A Chad Valley tin globe and acorn salt & pepper pots, for the bucket tree vintage shop...



More baskets! the bottom one is a sewing box with silky lining!

Some colourful tins.


New cups and plates for our flat...we are going for blue & white theme this time!


Vintage haberdashery items (from the stall in the photo, in the last post).


An amazing pot stand in my favorite rusty blue colour, we thought this would be great in the garden but would also make a nice shoe rack in the flat too.



Usefull tubs for planting trees in.


And...presenting...my first vehicle!!!



I can't ride a bike (its a long story involving older brothers and a bush of stinging nettles) but I hope to learn on this one as it's a kids bike so I can actually touch the floor with my feet...so I shouldn't fall off it right?

For you bike nerds out there, this is a 1970 'Triang' Moulton Mini made in Great Britain! (check out this website!)Quite collectable so Nao says (I haven't a clue but I love it anyway).


It needs a bit of TLC and some new tyres, then I'm off! (around the park).




Almost forgot...a knitted hat, by the same old lady that knitted those clothes hangers in the first photo. I'll wear it whist riding my bike pretending I'm in some French film!
