I went to Market and I bought a........
big wooden chicken! I couldn't resist him for £5! He (or should it be she?) has such a friendly expression on his face. He is quite heavy, having been used as a doorstop, and Mr.G nobly offered to take him back to the car, as of course I had bought him early on in our expedition!
We were actually at Leek market, in Staffordshire. It is there every Saturday, and there is the most amazing collection of things for sale! Whatever you want, I am sure you would find it there!
It is held in the Market Square (where else?) and I have to say that whatever wind there is finds its way straight down the Market Place! It gets quite chilly there, but its always worth a good hunt round.
After "doing" the market stalls, we went round the Charity Shops, bought a few books, and then, in the very last one, when I was feeling absolutely exhausted, I found this lovely real Italian leather bag in that deep burgandy shade that leather does so beautifully! I couldn't leave it there for just £3.50! I know I have just bought a bag, but this is rather good looking!
I was too tired to take photos of the Indoor Market in the Butter Market, but there are lots of interesting and colourful things there.
