Dotty About Vintage

Hello,

Hope you all had a lovely bank holiday break the last one for most of us until Christmas, I was in the garden centre on Sunday and they were filling the shelves with Christmas cards, just a tad too early I think!!

Just wanted to tell you about a vintage shop I visited in Whitby called 

"Dotty about Vintage"



It's only a small shop but  well stocked and the prices were very reasonable, I got talking to the owner Trudie a lovely lady, and it seems things are going really well, I got myself a lovely glass jelly mould with a strawberry scented candle in it, I'll be making a jelly in it once the candle has been used,



two pretty covered coat hangers that I'm going to display some of my many brooches on



and some old sewing things to go in my collection, can't wait to visit again.



Saw these doggies enjoying an ice cream 



and  kids/dad's fishing for crabs, I remember us doing this when I was little, good fun that doesn't cost the earth,



there's a few in that bucket.


As we were getting ready to leave we saw a huge billowing of smoke and a loud whistle and as we looked over the wall we saw a train just leaving the station, how lovely to ride through the countryside chugging away on a good old train.....those were the days!!




Love Lucey x
