Sunbury Antiques Market

Sunbury Antiques Market is held twice a month (2nd and 4th Tuesdays) at Kempton Racecourse (45 minutes away on the train from Waterloo)! The market opens at 6:30am so I suggest you get on the first train out of Waterloo, because most of the traders start packing up by midday (even though the website says it closes at 2pm) and there is SO much to see, you will need a couple of hours to look around and haggle of course! 

Prompted by Twitter that morning on the train, I was informed that Parul Arora of Just Noey was also at Kempton that morning (much earlier than me I have to admit - she must have got on that 7am train! I wasn't as disciplined), it was great to come back and see that she and I had seen some of the same things. You can read her post here.

 Here are a few of MANY things that caught my eye. I would've taken them all home if I had driven down and I had an unlimited budget, but as I took the train back, I only bought a lovely (very reasonably priced) mirror that is now lovingly hanging in my room.



I'd like to start collecting typewriters at some point, and type letters to friends and family. 


After spotting these lovely demijohns on the Design Sponge blog, I really want to get some for my flat! Spotted the ones above at Kempton, but no car = no purchase : /


Gorgeous old food packaging







I'd really like a digital train station clock  **preferably with hours, minutes and seconds; and also pixelated white numbers**




 

The next market is on Tuesday, the 11th of October. See you on the 7am train from Waterloo?
