On Sunday we antiqued in Lechlade after our walk, visiting Jubilee Hall (rather expensive), the Ironmongers (packed) and the Lechlade antique center---bought a pretty little jug there, I love the royal blue trim, it's from 1890-1921.
Monday we were off to Hungerford a town just full of antique stores, from very expensive to very reasonable. I finally broke down and Mac made me buy a Georgian tilt-top table (1810-1820), no picture yet we're having it shipped home along with some other stuff. I've wanted a table like this for years and this one was very reasonable so it became Mac's anniversary present to me, can't wait for it to get here.
Hungerford is a pretty little town and we broke the day up with lunch at the John O'Gaunt.

Also picked up a couple of glass jugs from a store called the Shed just south of Stratford. The one is really lovely, having an etched fish on each side and a swan on the front.
Thursday after dropping off a load of stuff at Simon Hall, that's who we always ship with, we went to see Karen in Bretforton. Usually she has loads of Victorian jugs and glassware, but not this trip. I did buy a lovely little candle table, a covered dish with a ladle, another ladle and several small plates (royal blue again) and a wooden fishing reel for Mac.
Our last day of shopping we went back to Lechlade and I finally found a child's tea set, I'd been looking every where for one.
So now I'm waiting to hear when my shipment will be here from England and wondering how I'm going to pay for everything! LOL
It was a lot of fun.
