We went off again at the weekend to another National Trust property and enroute we stopped off at Station Road Antiques Centre in Chipping Norton. I'd see it signposted on previous trips out, but we had never stopped off before. Oh, I was so glad we did. What a feast for the eyes. I'm sorry to say that I was a little shy and didn't take any photo's, but rest assured, most of you would have loved it.
At the back they had a little tea room with homemade cake and mismatched tea-cups and saucers. There was even a sofa with the most gorgeous vintage patchwork throw to sit on
Split over 2 floors, I was in my element. Anyone who loves vintage should visit. I was restrained with my purchases but couldn't resist these little chaps. They were paired up, but I'm not sure if in a previous life they had another partner.
I can never resist vintage childrens' books so snapped this one up along with a cute armchair snack tray - ever heard of one? I'm not sure of it's age and I probably won't use it for it's intended use! Underneath there are a couple of spring action arms so it stays in place on the chair.
Other little thrifty treats over the weekend was this - don't ask why.
The 3 male members of the house think I've gone slightly mad as my purchases are getting more and more kitsch, but I make no apologies!
These next 3 items are quite 'normal' I think!
Right, busy day ahead - hubby's birthday next week so better go and present buy. Toby has suddenly realised that it's 'OK' to be interested in clothes and shoes so I'm on a mission to get a certain type of top and a certain type of trainer - I hope I get it right for him! I didn't think I needed to worry about fashion with boys - obviously not. Wish me luck!
