Aberfoyle Antique Market

I`ve been busy busy on my week off and have tons done! Over the next while I`ll post some of it. For now, here`s the pictures I promised...


It`s so big that they have street names....

There was massive amounts of furniture everywhere....


Loads of pottery and china inside and outside.....

A nice little spot to sit and rest....

Baskets galore and vintage clothing....

A little hot for that fur coat. It was muggy and humid but the rain held off luckily for the vendors...


I found a sewing basket with bits and bobs inside, a pretty blue-green vase/candy dish that matches and cream and sugar set I have (sitting on the table), a green duvet cover which oddly looks beige here, vintage Waverly fabric, pretty glass jar, tablecloth and a decorating book with loads of nice things inside. All in all I spent $70. Not bad :)

That looks like a fun place to visit. I probably would have been hanging around those plants.

I wish we had these sort of things near here, it looks like such a fun outing and you found some really nice things. The Waverley fabrics are lovely - do you have a plan for them or did you get it 'just because'?

I made pillow shams out of the roses one and the other is one of the covers on the bed. A real mish mash of prints and colours LOL

Thanks for visiting my blog which led me here...
I am drooling by just looking at your pictures of the antique market. I see alot that would've found its way into my car! I have weak knees when it comes to "brocantes"/antique fairs!
I love your blog - great posts with photos and narrative, lovely vintage stuff(weak knees!), great food....it seems we have quite a few things in common!

I love Aberfoyle so much! I did'nt realize they had street names...i always get separated from my bf, so next time we can find each other easier with the aid of cell phones!!
good purchases there!

I love the Aberfoyle antique market as well. I don't think I made it there last year, I must remedy that this year. But it will have to wait for a while. 5 more sleeps and I fly to England. 26 more sleeps and I get married!

Love the fabrics you found, and the green glass is beautiful.
