a moment to savour – Aberfoyle Antique Market

May 9, 2014

As each week draws to a close its good for the soul to recapture some of the wonderful moments that lead you to the week’s end. It is essential not to take the little things for granted – celebrate their awesomeness through a weekly ritual of reflection. Welcome to “A Moment to Savour”.

We have had the opening of the Aberfoyle Antique Market on our calendar for months.  Only second to the flower markets, the Aberfoyle Antique Market is a big slice of heaven for us.  If you have ever been in our studio space you have probably noticed that we are not huge fans of new things.  We would much rather share our studio space with the old, the reclaimed and the vintage.  Our display fixtures, our work surfaces, and even our kitchen sink have histories that go beyond there stay in our shop.

We arrive promptly at the market’s opening and are usually one of the last to leave.  Every stall and every vendor gets our undivided attention.  Needless to say, we are there a while!  And although we go there with an agenda, we usually depart with empty wallets and a van load more than we had planned for.  We have gotten really great at maximizing our vehicle space – but this time, we left with a van full and still needed to pay for two deliveries!  Enjoy a peek at our fun filled day!
