My recent vintage shopping trip at Peterborough’s Festival of Antiques

Last week I went to The Festival of Antiques at Peterborough Showground for a vintage shopping trip and bought some orange lovelies! Mostly from the same sellers too!

All of these except the Le Creuset pot, came from Holland and sold from a lovely Dutch couple (who were very patient with my daughter who re-arranged their stand into perfect lines and colour matching!).

My favourite item is the large 1960/70s Dutch Tomado vintage tin in psychedelic patterns. I have wanted one for ages in this size so was happy to find it. I have no idea where it will go and what will be stored inside – for now it is sitting on the floor beside the sideboard looking lovely.

I can never resist a basket and this small one in orange sits perfectly in my cupboard filled with goodies. I have a few now like this with food stored inside, creating a lovely pantry feel.

The biscuit tin dates from the late 1950s and already has biscuits in ready for the family to enjoy. It fits perfectly with the kitchen and I love how it breaks up the floral scheme which is everywhere.

The lunch box is also Dutch and something I just could not resist. I have no idea what I will do with it, it may just sit here with pens in! The colour is lovely and I love that it has a handle (the others there didn’t).

Finally I am using the Le Creuset pot as a planter. This came from a local charity shop and isn’t that old but hey, I couldn’t stop myself!

I also bought two striped vintage pillowcases which need a good iron before I photo them. These will go in my daughter’s bedroom which I will share soon.

What have you bought recently?

    I stumbled across your website after learning that you started following me on Instagram, so I came and immediately dove in to your articles. I liked this one a lot and when I saw you mention Peterborough, I thought to myself, there’s an antique fair here in Peterborough, Ontario (Canada)? I got really excited because one, Canada does not have great vintage fairs and two, I found another Canadian vintage lover! But of course, when I looked into it, it’s a different Peterborough – you’re in the UK – and I had to remind myself that the best antique fairs are in Europe and the US and that you’d NEVER find Le Creuset in such good shape here.
