A Sunday Outing to Lewes Flea Market

Hello everyone!

Today myself and the boyfriend decided to venture over to the flea market on Market Street in Lewes. I have been wanting to go for AGES and woke up to sunshine, so we got ourselves on the bus over there to hunt for some beautiful bargains.

Bargains, Bargains come out wherever you are!

The sunshine quickly changed into rain, rain and more rain but this didn't dampen our spirits to find some beauties. This place is quite literally a treasure chest! Lots of stalls are packed into the market, which is in an old Methodist Church. It is very grand and the building really added to the spirit of things, with beams, vaulted ceilings and this amazing door!

There is so much to hunt through from jewellery, furniture, kitchenware, really does have everything in there. We particularly loved one stall which had an Anglepoise Lamp and a Lloyd Loom Laundry basket. I particularly love the retro classic items, and an original is so nice to find. If we didn't have to get the bus back I think we would have bought both, however we decided to go for the Lloyd Loom basket. It just needs a bit of love and care and it will look wonderful in our bedroom! Here is a sneaky peak, I will update you all soon with how the restoration goes!

Are any of you doing any restorations at the moment? The 'shabby chic' trend is huge at the moment but I think we will be staying as close to the original with this one!
Lots of love,
Hannah xxx
