vintage & antique shopping in ashburton.



I haven't been for a year or two, but Ashburton is one of my favourite places to browse antiques and vintage clothing in Devon. There are quite a few gorgeous antique shops, and a handful of great charity shops too. So, really, it's my ideal shopping destination. If only I had money to spare.

We spent a few hours on Monday rummaging around for dusty treasures, dreaming about things we'd love to have in our home (mum and I fell in love with a deep mustard yellow sofa that was SO comfy!) as well as finding some bizarre thingamajigs.


Obviously, we had to stop off at our favourite lunch spot, The Green Ginger. Last time we went, a beautiful cat made friends with us in the garden. This time we saw that they'd added 3 bunnies to their growing creature feature. They were very sweet, and I loved that their markings resembled those of the resident ducks.

After a little more rummaging, finding dresses I'd like to get married in (hint hint, Douglas) and one dress that reminded me of William Morris' work (and therefore also reminded me of Jazmine) I had to force mum to take me home, as I was totally exhausted.

Have you ever visited Ashburton? Where's your favourite place for vintage rummaging?

  13. This little shop is adorable! There was one when I lived in Dallas, that I frequented, that looked a lot like this. I miss it! It's so nice that you went with your mom. Mine wouldn't be caught dead in a vintage shop. What stopped you from getting that couch?!
