Treasure Hunting in Somerset. My favourite places to shop for unique finds.

I am not a fan of shopping, well not ordinary shopping.  Going into a High Street Chain store and seeing foreign made goods stacked up and sold cheap has never appealed to me. I do however, like Treasure Hunting.  Treasure Hunting is how I describe my secret shopping trips off to hideaway shops in Somerset.   I can disappear for hours without warning and then come back to Middlewick with a car full of exciting finds.

Now I guess I shouldn’t be revealing my secret shops but as my cottages are getting pretty full now with all the bits I have picked up, I am happy to share.

On our doorstep here in Glastonbury are my 2 favourites.  Glastonbury Reclamation and Wells Reclamation are a few minutes drive from us here at Middlewick.  Both are bursting at the seams with interesting finds.  I spend a lot of time shopping here and you will find many of my purchases in our cottages.

 

Emporium in Yeovil is a treasure trove of goodies.  With an array of individual traders including OohLaLa Lampshades there is always something interesting.  Add to this a fantastic cafe upstairs you can spend many hours browsing.

Bath & West Giant Flea Market and Antiques Markets.  My idea of heaven.  Dozens of stallholders selling the weird and wonderful.  I have picked up so many interesting pieces at these shows.

Happy Treasure Hunting.
