My favourite purchases from Alfies

Working in an antiques market can certainly have its advantages, not only are you surrounded by beautiful objects everyday but its a perfect place to buy presents for friends and family, and the odd present for yourself!

This post is sharing my favourite items I've bought from Alfies. When I first started I was immediately drawn to Ian Broughton's fantastic shop, as I was on the lookout for a record player. It just happens that's what Ian specialises in!

So, after telling him my budget and the sort of one I would like he kept his eyes peeled and a couple of weeks later brought in this beauty for me!
It was perfect size and looked super cute!



It even folds down to become a little suitcase!



Another favourite buy was quite recently, I was rummaging in Persiflage and spotted this amazing vintage tea towel. The illustrations are brilliant and each little character is different. Its definitely too good for drying dishes with!
