Treasure seeking...

I went out treasure seeking (again!) and found a few more bits and bobs to keep the store stocked. This time, i went to Botany Bay, a converted cotton mill with wonderful mixture of giftware, ethnic products and collectables from present day through yesteryear. Although some pricing are bit off the mark, it's worth a visit. Please take a peek around this place...

 Into the main building was lovely, a real step back to the past with antique shops, jewellery boutique and...

old fashioned sweet shop where you can buy all your childhood favourite sweets by the quarter

The ground floor is a Dickensian style retail arcade & square with loads of unusual goods

It is a massive old mill building that they have opened up to small traders selling a variety of items.

Bygone Times Treasure

There are extremely lots of places for hunting out vintage treasures in Lancashire. Last week, we went to Bygone Times, an old mill converted to a shopping market that offers a series of three warehouses featuring over 250 different units with antiques, collectables, curios, memorabilia and nostalgia.

Their Victorian cobbled alleyway leads us through to lots of articles from yesteryear such as vintage china, Art Deco items, past time story books and fifties home decor.

This stall has colourful of antique furniture

An array of toy miniature figurines representing soldier. They are produced in highly realistic and detailed models.

There were a few good deals lurking in the warehouse but you don’t go to Bygone Times for bargains, the price is all fixed.

 One of my favourite pieces was there...

 Bygone Times is really a treasure trove for vintaque fans...

 What a creative way to show off your vintage doilies!

 Gardens supply...

 The older and more unsual an item, the more valuable it becomes.

 Ended the treasure hunting with this very large jug and basin, worked wonderfully well as decorative display on my mantel...

Do visit Bygone Times. Cheers!
