Watermill Antiques- LOTS of pretties

Hello Again!

LOTS of pics in this post! This is Watermill Antiques, Set in Barton Le Clay in Bedfordshire with a surrounding Duck pond and shopping village with fab restaraunt..its a lovely place to visit!
Something keeps drawing me back to this place as I have been connected to it in some form or other.

  I used to love to visit and the first place I ever rented to sell my Handmade gifts were in the gallery just by the top hand right window at the top front of the mill....I then worked in the Fantasy Crafts who were at the time in there...then they moved just down the road and Watermill Antiques moved in and I now stock some of my products in there! I was once told by a very spiritual person that it would feature in my future and that it has!!
So heres some pics of the lovely treasures in there....( some you may recognise!!!!)
Pretty sparklies!!

 hmmm seen those before...can't think where???!!!

Fine looking Top hat...

 A trunk full of vintage eiderdowns and Quilts...

  Stacks of suitcases...
Birdcage and Chairs...

Blocks Against a Gorgeous Chandelier that...

...Looks Amazing when Lit!!.

A Beautiful painted glass screen..swoon...

My little decoupaged box holding some pearly treasures...

And My FAVE, the french enamel Chandelier...SO PRETTY!!!

And thats just downstairs...Upstairs hold Emmas sparkly Vintage and retro Boutique, the most glittery and spangly collection with some amazing  Vintage hats and Accessories too!

LOVE LOV E LOVE these Sparkly shoes

( did I ever mention that I had pale pink glittered 7 inch platforms under my Wedding dress??) 
And then theres also Dawn with Vintage Delightz

Had to enlarge the pic of the tailor's dummy with the brooches. Just loved to gaze. We're not too far from Bedfordshire (I'm on Thameslink. Any good?) so maybe I'll be able to call in one day. xx

Annie said...

This place looks great, I have checked it out and it's not too far away so I will definitely pay it a visit. Thanks for sharing it. Hope you are having a great weekend.

What a fantastic place to visit! I wonder at all the places that old top hat has visited! I wish I had a mannequin to pin brooches to - love that idea! Love your blocks - they're so cottagey!!! Thanks for sharing!... Donna

I have booked myself a trip there, hubby has looked it up and promised to take me there. I don't know how I managed to miss that little beauty.
