the antiques fair

My little children and I spent a glorious day wandering around the Ardingly Antiques Fair. It was just our kind of thing, stall upon stall of fascinating objects. We’re shattered, and ready for a quiet evening before we do it all again tomorrow! First I’d love to show you a few of my finds.


Most of these were under £6, and the sort of things I’ve been searching for for years. I’m especially thrilled about the demijohn, I dream of homemade cider and perry. The trug is delightful, just the size for coming along on foragey walks.


How nice to find some more silverware, these pieces are English, and a steal. They were only sold in groups, but each group is different from the next, so I’m content. The children and I also found tiny perfume bottles for our scents, and I now have a lovely penknife of my very own. They are hoping to make a choice between lockets at the fair tomorrow, and there’s a few other corners I hope to explore. Follow me around the antiques fair if you like.
