What is better for a sunny Sunday afternoon than a market? In this case, it is my local market that often pops up the The Square for no reason what's so ever, and no warning at all. So I thought I would take you around with me, and show you all that I found.
Now the first stall that me and Geran stumbled across was the pastry stall, and I have to say that it was such food porn! It was set out like a pick and mix, but with pastry and all you had to do was grab a bag and get carried away with choosing food. Of course me and Geran dug in, and I fell in love with the lemon stuffed croissant.
The next stall that we stumbled across was the organic soap stand. I can't explain to you how many different soaps and bars there were, and how amazing they smelt. Each one had a different colour and smell, and some smelt so good you could eat them! Me and Geran were oddly fascinated with the scrubber and couldn't help standing and squeezing it for ten minutes to the strange looks of other customers.
The next stall was a home-made toiletry stand, and I cannot explain to you how many soaps and bottle cascaded the shelves with the most sultry scents. One for every occasion. Me and Geran fell in love with the natural scrubber and almost cried when we noticed the price. I wanted twelve of them!
Now the food that was being cooked and served was all served in big pans, sizzling happily away in front of you. Everything from Thai to Indian to Crepes, they truly had everything. Walking past each stall set your stomach rumbling, especially the hog roast! It was an entire pig, and the lovely man offered everyone a free sample which of course I couldn't resist!
The next stall that I fell in love with was the home and wear mis match, and it had such a cute vintage vibe. The jewellery stands were separate to the home ware but they were so unique and full of oddities that I had to include them! If you are anything like me then you love to stand there and look through all the earrings and necklaces, fall in love with them and then see the price and run far far away. I adored the mugs and as an Elephant is my favourite animal, I made a small yelp at the sight of these statues.
On the handbag stall I fell in love with this little critter which is a coin purse. I imagine his name is Harold and he has lived a troubled life. Don't ask me why, but I name every animal I see old man names.
Now to my favourite stand of all. The stand fall of everything wooden, natural and smells like incense. I fall in love with these stalls and shops everywhere I go, and I always have to collect a wooden cat ring holder each time I visit. (Geran brought me the black and white spotty one you can see on a photo below). I of course fell in love with all of the elephants, and the metal bangle was gorgeous!
I adore all of the wooden figures, and intricate designs. A true rummage stall.
Now I was ready to go for a cup of tea at this point, as the weather couldn't make up it's mind whether it was raining or not when I stumbled across the stall below with the biggest strawberry cables I have ever seen! Not to mention the flumps! To some of you this must be completely boring, but I really am a child in a candy store so these fascinated me.
The only way to end a happy Sunday relaxing, is with a nice cup of tea. This time, we decided to visit one of our favourite coffee shops called Off The Square to have a pot of tea. I adore the funky looking teapots and the plant pot looking cups, not to mention that they do a wonderful pot of tea.
And of course the obligatory selfies however today it is a no makeup selfie due to my skin just not behaving today!
What are you doing this Sunday?
Much love x
