Hay-on-Wye Antique Market

Y Gelli Gandryll is the welsh name for the famous book town Hay-on-Wye which is home to over 30 book stores, a castle, the Guardian Hay Festival, and Hay Antique Market. Whilst the variety of bookstores are an attraction in themselves, the Antique Market is not without. It's a small indoor complex, housing over 20 stalls selling an 'eclectic mix of antiques and collectables, including oak and pine furniture, vintage clothing, china and glassware jewellry, clocks, linen and much more'.

I really enjoy browsing in around the various stalls, and always see a few things worth taking home. (Everything is very sensible priced!) Below are a few things that took my fancy when I visited last week.

Set of Coffee Mugs.

Set of placemats. I love the soft bronze colour.

A yellow and white bucket shaped chair. The contrast between the plastic of the chair and the needlework cushion is really interesting.

If you ever visit Hay-on-Wye, be sure not to miss the Antique Market!
