Antique shops are a new thing for me. Aside from groaning at my mum and sister when they dragged me around as a kid, I’ve not explored them very much. Although I do love to re-use and recycle whatever I can so there’s hope. A few weeks ago I took myself on a tour of Bristol’s best haunts — here are a few Instagram shots of the things I found:There were so many treasures on display that I literally spent hours making sure I looked in every corner, and on every shelf. I saw a lot of old, painted Birdcages; wouldn’t they look cute as a jewellery display, or hung from the ceiling with a spider plant inside? I’d love a few of those tea tins to store my knitting needles in as well. Aah… I better start saving!
Do you enjoy roaming around antique shops, flea markets or a good ol’ fashioned car-boot sale?
