Altrincham Market- Vintage Weekend

Altrincham Market is on every weekend 10-4pm and I cannot believe I have only recently come across this cool quirky place!

Every weekend presents a different theme and this week was my all time favourite…vintage!

I have made a collection of my favourite photographs from the market and even if you go once do it, try it!

Think about it….you can go to  the usual boring pub or shopping centre any day…so try something different!


Always love food from a camper van!IMG_0627-0

Or a street cart!IMG_0631

I want one in every colour!IMG_0632-0


Vintage blazers…love these!IMG_0628-0

All these clocks are handmade , one of a kind from RS Clocks and Watches . The couple who make these are so lovely it was a pleasure meeting them. They guarantee to fix and replace any items bought – a very reassuring touch when buying a product from a marketplace. IMG_0635-0IMG_0637-0


I was dying to buy one of these but £35 for the plant and £45 for the pot was a bit excessive for an outdoor accessory. IMG_0634-0

One day my garden will look like this. Well. Maybe.IMG_0639-0

Now, i had TWO of these. Yes TWO! Who doesn’t like a pizza cooked in a wood-fire oven!



Well i will mot definately be coming back every weekend…why not? There’s plenty to see, plenty to buy and most importantly plenty to eat!


Review – King’s Court in Altrincham, Manchester

King’s Court in Altrincham is a hidden gem, secluded under an arch way on the main street in altrincham – Stamford Brooke Rd.

Look out for the small car park attached behind King’s Court (there are steps going down)  – 10p for an hour! It’s not obvious where it is but once you find it you’ll always want to go back. It’s modern, cool, quirky and serves the BEST full english breakfast and fresh juices!

A definite yes on the menu is;

BLT sandwich or chicken panini with freshly squeezed orange juice. All sandwiches come with a gorgeous cous cous and cabbage salad.

A pot of tea here gives you about 6 full cups – love it!

They open all the doors when the weather is good and if they just played some good music you’ll feel like you’re in Soho London.

While i’m on Maternity leave i visit this gorgeous relaxing venue every two weeks. With the high street close by it’s a great mum and baby friendly cafe.

Next time i’ll have to try a dessert and a new flavoured tea.
