On Saturday I took a trip out to the Stroud Rag Fair. It was such a lovely day that on the way back I took a small detour to the village of Minchinhampton which I knew had a couple of charity shops - 'posh' ones I'd been told, but I thought I'd have a look. The fitting room was in the Dorothy House Hospice shop on the main street.
I was so taken by it I asked if I could take pictures - the manageress was delighted, she said a lot of people commented on it, which she had taken great care to create and was (I think) rightly proud of.
Patrick Swayze and Audrey Hepburn keep you company as you undress! Being a bit shy of them I didn't try anything on myself. I would happily have bought some of the fixtures, but they weren't for sale :-(
Pretty pink fairy lights around the mirror, there are three mirrors altogether for a good view all round. The rest of the shop was very well kept too and though I didn't find anything to buy it was a delight to visit.
Minchinhampton itself is a pretty village, I loved the matching green on this door and railings.
Small villages at the weekend can be spookily quiet, it felt a bit strange walking down a street and seeing no cars or people.
I almost didn't go into The Trumpet (what a great name) antique shop, looking in the window it looked like it might have 'posh' prices.
But I did and was pleasantly surprised to find these two ladies well within my budget.
I love these sort of days out where I don't follow a particular plan, please myself and find nice surprises along the way!
