Sorry – this is one for people in the South East of the UK – but I think it is worth finding and using your local shops and so I’m going to plug mine!
I first heard about the Old Flight House Antiques Centre when it was nominated for a Muddy Stilettos award last year, and thought it sounded good enough to make the hour’s journey. The vast and varied selection of antiques, vintage items and other interior accessories was impressive and made the trip well worth it.
It had the feel of wandering through your grandma’s (very spacious) loft; packed full of items with a past in need of an editor. I particularly enjoyed some great value finds – such as a vibrant Mexican throw (currently in my bedroom) and some large glass storage jars (still there when I left).
I would definitely recommend it for a browse and a coffee or as somewhere to source a specific item of furniture or accessories.
