Arm linked in arm we went along Old Ford Road catching up and giggling. Where were we going? To York Hall for the wonderful Vintage Furniture Flea! As we approached I was already cursing the trains for their delay as I could see many a table/chairs/cabinets being walked out of the hall already. Darn it!
York Hall itself was really quite something. A magnificent Georgian building, opened in 1929 by the Duke of York and still standing to this day. Let me show you what I mean.
Why oh why do I always torture myself like this?? At least I could console myself with a few smaller pieces. And we all know small is beautiful!
Here are all the gems that could've been had...
I simply cannot leave empty handed and so below are a few of my purchases. An Ornament Shelf which I plan to add a lick of paint to before putting up. I will show you this once it is complete, along with my frames from Saturday. Some Vintage Buttons and an Owl Tea towel for my sister. Lastly, one of the first things I spotted. Two lovely Record Racks, just what I was looking for! Together my purchases came to just under £43 including tea and cake. Not bad if I say so myself.
It was such a glorious day we decided we would have a little wonder around. Not in the park but off to the V&A Museum of Childhood. Once again, housed in the loveliest of buildings with a most beautiful floor. One that I would love to have in my home one day.
