P and I had a grand day out and visited the amazing treasure trove that is Kempton Antiques Market. Its starts early at 6.30am, for all those eager beavers wanting to snap up a deal. But P and I arrived at 10! I was amazed at the range of merchandise on sale, vintage fabric, clothes, jewelry, furniture [of course] and lots lots more. P bought some bedside tables that she intends to customise and I came home with a badger! It was not what I set out to buy, but I have to admit he is a welcome addition to the family home.
So if you happen to have a Tuesday morning free I strongly advise a day out to Sundbury-on-Thames. The market is on twice a month and on the website they have a diary of all the forecoming dates.
I just thought I’d add a pic of the badger!!
I’m starting to gather objects for my ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’, so far I have Wilberforce and the skeleton of a turtle from Athens, which I found on a walk in a park in Greece.
