Altrincham Vintage Market

Teacups, fresh food, fur jackets, patterned dresses, vintage jewellery, macaroons, old binoculars and to top it off a cold but crisp sunny afternoon at the Altrincham Vintage Market.

A bustling array of market stalls that got every vintage villain wide eyed and giddy. It was busy as id expected from the weather being perfect which in Manchester, perfect equals not raining so you can imagine how many people had the same idea. And with the Entrance stalls selling a wide variety of food including cute iced cupcakes, jars of chutney and fresh bread, an array of countless curries as well as homemade soup, anyone who didn't know about the Market would of been attracted by the delicious smell.

But it was a pretty darn good market. The fact id already spent £170 mentally on a vintage tartan dress, old black type writer, antique 3 tone ring, white wooden jewellery box and a 1950's suitcase proved it. And so it was probably a good idea i didn't bring much cash in the first place, even though i'm fretting over not buying that fitted tartan number.

I did think some of the key items on the stalls where a little pricey but i guess some vintage is, especially when it is untouched and in perfect condition. But i suppose you could go and sulk in the pop up tea room, perfectly set up in the corner of the market. With tables draped in patterned cloth, set with a jar of wild flowers (There's a how-to recycle jars in the post below) and served in floral tea cups and matching cake plates.

And il let the photo's tell the rest!
