Hello, hello! A very happy 'Blog Post Monday' to you all!
Now, in York, my home city, we're lucky to have an abundance of independent vintage and antique shops. Last year I wrote a local's guide to finding the best antiques and vintage in York. However, a new year needs a new guide and as there are quite a few new additions to York's trail, I thought I'd do the honours. Behold a more comprehensive 2022 guide, for shopping antiques and vintage in York.
So, as always, get that kettle on, get those hotels booked and let me guide you through the finest establishments in York for your antique and vintage shopping...
Ahoy there! Welcome to your weekly instalment of 'Blog Post Monday'.
What a lovely Sunday I had! I spent the day at the fantastic antiques fair at York Racecourse, a fair that never fails to put a smile on my face and a hole in my wallet! Always a well organised, family friendly event that I very much look forward to. The popular New Years Day event of this quarterly fair was cancelled this year because of continuing Covid concerns at the time, so it was good to have it back and I wasn't disappointed with what I found!
So, let this week's instalment serve as a tempting little insight into this fabulous event, York Antique Home & Vintage Fair, everybody...!
Welcome to another instalment of your favourite weekly read.
This week I ventured out again in search of treasures and decided to test the water in the scenic seaside town of Scarborough in North Yorkshire. I'd been to Scarborough a few times before, but never to look for antiques and I wasn't sure what, if anything, I'd find. This week's post is dedicated to my trip to Scarbados (as known by the locals).
So, as always, get that kettle, get those beach towels out and join me as I experience the good, the very good and the ugly side of the antiques trade in Scarborough...
Welcome once again to another instalment of your favourite weekly read, 'Blog Post Monday'.
My aim this year is to get out and about a bit more, discover new antiques shops and buy more quality pieces for you lovely lot to enjoy. This week I decided to hop on a train and head over to South Yorkshire, to Sheffield, to explore the antiques scene there. I had a wonderful time, chatted with some lovely people and found some great pieces! And, I've decided to dedicate this week's blog post to this wonderful city.
So, as always, get that kettle on, get your railcards out and join me on my antiques rail trip to the lovely city of Sheffield...
Hello and welcome, we're back with your favourite Monday read! That's right, 'Blog Post Monday'!
Some of you will know that I took a trip south last week for a friend's wedding and to visit my family who I've not seen for almost two years! I based myself in Hampshire, visited Wiltshire and dragged my family across to Berkshire so that I could have have a look around the massive selection of antique shops in Hungerford.
With family in toe, I couldn't spend too much time looking, so it was a very rapid run around. But I was very impressed with what I saw and what I found, and this week's post is all about that.
So, as always, get that kettle on and strap yourselves in for my antiques road trip to Hungerford!
