Sunday Market

It was finally warm enough this morning to stroll up to the Sunday Trash n Treasure market. My son and I love to browse the bric-a-brac stalls and chat to people we know. As well as junk stalls, there are lots of food stalls, fresh Middle Eastern cakes, organic bread, local honey, and some good plant stalls too.

I usually find a few treasures. I love this vintage apron, isn't it cute?

Some Australiana tea towels for a dollar each - these are becoming harder to find.

A Huge old jam pan. I've been looking for a metal bath or tub to plant some herbs in, this will do nicely!

weirdly Australiana seems to come up quite often here - clearly a popular holiday destination back when. Or maybe lots of friends of Norfolk folk decamped over there and dilligently sent the Norfolk folk tea towels by way of a hello? I shall hoard for you if I find any! t.x

Just been having a great big catch up Allison. The shop looks so wonderful, congratulations. I wish I could come!

We used to get a tea towel every year from our Australian relatives. They were calendar ones. I don't think mum was that keen and I'm pretty sure we don't have any left! I too got a huge load of tea towels at a bootsale a few weeks ago. The lady selling them said her mum collected them from everywhere she visited. They were all new and unused in Irish Linen. I have a few old London underground ones that I think I am going to make into cushions
