First stop was lunch at Bailey's, a quaint little bistro on the High Street, we managed to get a table right by the front window and was able to watch the world go by. It was a beautiful, warm sunny day and everyone was in their summer finery then without warning the heavens opened.
It was torrential rain and didn't take long for the road to become flooded, this street two minutes before was full of people going about their business.
This rain continued for about 45 minutes with claps of thunder every now and again, then the sun began to shine again and from nowhere the streets were full. Paige and I had a little giggle over this as they looked like little ants filling the streets and we couldn't work out where they'd all been sheltering.
As soon as the rain had stopped we began shopping in case it came back again without warning again.
We'd come to Bridgnorth to visit the lovely vintage shops.I wanted to go to one in particular called Gin & Teacups, a gorgeous shop, full of vintage treasures.
Last time I'd been in they had an array of vintage knitting needles so I planned on buying some but just my luck, they'd sold them all but I did find these vintage Jaeger Angora Spun yarn at just £1.00 a ball.
While I was there I popped into WH Smiths to have a look at the magazines, and I found this one called Pretty Nostalgic.
This is the second issue, I can't believe I missed the first one, how did that happen !!! It is full of vintage lovliness, stunning photo's and how-to's.
The rain clouds looked very ominous so we cut our visit short and headed back to the car, on our way home we stopped off at Garden Village.We had a wonder around and I found this little shop called Oliver's, it sells new and vintage country living/shabby chic goodies.
I was so excited when I saw this baby blue wicker basket with french ribbon tied around the handle, hanging up outside, I've been after a pretty basket for ages and just couldn't find one I liked. It was a bargain price of £7.99, so needless to say I snapped it up.
When I entered this Aladdin's cave of everything shabby chic I was in heaven, touching, picking things up, ohhing and aaahing. I could have spent a fortune but I restrained myself and just bought a few things I'd been wanting.
A wire basket for my fat quarters.
A vintage teacup and side plate to add to my collection.
This little garden trug wasn't on my list of things but I couldn't resist it, not sure what to use it for yet but will find a use for it !!!
A new tray, so all in all I've had a great day of shopping and very pleased with my purchases
I hope you're all having a great weekend, I'm off now to devour my new magazine from cover to cover.
