A great place to spend a rainy afternoon!


Yesterday I was busy doing errands and generally catching up with lots of things after a manic run of selling at various fairs.....


The Vintage Trading Company has recently opened in Exeter and was somewhere that I was looking forward to visiting.


 There was a friendly welcome from Shelley and Maggie, and after a chat it was time to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and some great stands of treasures.


This fantastic dresser caught my eye. If only I had a kitchen big enough for it!


There was something to suit every taste, and all displayed beautifully......



Mr W. would have loved this enormous old sack, but he wasn't with me to be tempted.


How inviting is this area? I also liked the fact that everything was clearly marked with a price.



Last, but not least... this tempting miniature 50's toy so nearly came home with me!!! Might have to put that on the Christmas list.... If you are in the Exeter area, do visit The Vintage Trading Company at 16 Marsh Green Road East, Marsh Barton, Exeter EX2 8PQ.

Thanks Julie, there is also a place called Steptoes just around the corner from The Vintage Trading Company that is worth a visit! Lizzie
