Another day at Dagfields :o)

I've had a really great day out with two dear friends at Dagfields Antique and Craft Emporium.
They picked me up from home at about 9.30 am and we set off on a cold and miserable damp day for Cheshire a journey of about 35 miles.  We arrived ready for a days mooching and buying!

Then the fun began...there's the shabby chic look

the lovely, but to my eyes overcrowded look

(where does the bed begin and the cushions start?)
The classy furniture...

Loved this unit :o)

Vintage accessories - dig those golden shoes!

The clear, clean layouts.

Another vintage frock and some Victorian pussy cats.

A truly AWFUL porcelain statue..(shudder)

A lovely Victorian ewer and bowl in blue and white, of course!

Swarowski crystal do-dahs.

Jewellery, I can't believe I actually took this photo and didn't 'see' the blue glass heart!

Chucks 'n chicks!

We stopped for a sit down and some lunch...and then started again :o)
Looking at more -

Trinkets and teasmades.

Lovely lamps and magical mirrors.

Super sized hurricanes on crazed glass tables.

And the mirror I fell in love with!  (sadly, no where to hang it)

What did I buy? 

A 'spare' small meat plate just in case I break the one from my 'special' set
which are the identical make, colour and pattern....see on my dresser!

It is only the second piece I've EVER found and a bargain £3.

then from the leather shop

Sheepskin gloves - reduced to £5,
and something I really did need :o)
And a pair of these sheepskin boots...reduced from £88 to £60

We called in at Slaters Craft Village for a quick look round but no purchases as they were just closing for the day - and I left my camera in the car :-(

Then home again, skint and exhausted!

All in all a great day, lots of laughs in fabulous company.

Hope you've enjoyed a visit to Dagfields with me,  see you all soon,  Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Best wishes to all

Hello Auntie Rose, well it looks like a load of tat to me, but I know you Sandy and mom had a good time.
That's one thing I don't need boots, just as well at that price!! I'd need two pairs!!
I do like a good pair of gloves, so next time you come over bring them with you and I'll check them out ;)
See Yea George xxx

It sounds like you had a wonderful day. I did not do any thrifting this weekend. Hubby and I worked on organizing our basement, going through boxes of things from consolidating 5 households. When we married in 2005, between us, we owned five homes. Since then we have sold three, so we are down to two. But oh my word, so much stuff. But it's great fun to go through everything. I have quite a bit for sale and plan to have a garage sale in a few weeks.

Hope you have a great week.


PS: Still enjoying my little dish from you!
