It was a pretty fall day when we headed to Surrey for the Epsom Downs Racecourse for their Antique Fair. Surrounded by rolling hills, the racecourse is put into extra use when antiques are the stars of the day, and not the horses.
Most of the vendors were set up inside and all were eager to wheel and deal, as well as educate you about their items for sale.
Up for sale was jewelry,
and of course, silver.
I thought this set was especially pretty--mustard pot, pepper pot, and salt cellar,
but this was my only purchase for the day. Silverplate Sheffield from the 50's--not so old really, but a fun piece that I think I can use so many ways.
When you head to an antique fair, you never know what you'll find. Some of the more "exotic" items were found outside. A pair of prosthetic legs,
a vintage hair dryer,
a stuffed cat,
a tattoed, long hair dealer, selling a stuffed rat and
skeletons just in time for Halloween!
