Saturday... Market Day

Hey I know its not Saturday, but had trouble yesterday with the photos getting to the blog, so pretend its Saturday all over again!

On the way to the market we pass this little Chapel called Chapel in the Garden, its a lovely unique place with this little path up to it, so decided it was about time to take a look inside, Saturday mornings their open for coffee and the sale of second-hand books

Wow wasn't dissappointed, it dates from 1794 and the feeling inside this little chapel is one calmness, warmth, love and cosiness, all the pews have little gates on them being of rich gold pine, even the organ is enclosed in  a pine fronted cupboard which all opens out.  Georgous clock which dosn't show up on the photo but is stamped on the face Bridport, why do you always want things that are inaccessible to you, would look lovely on the kitchen wall!

The gallery is accessed by a lovely wooden staircase, where second-hand books take their positions in the pews waiting for the service to begin, some look like they have been there since the 17th century, time has just passed them by

Back out into the sunshine and the bustling market, love the market here, always filled with the strange and wonderful...

Knobs and Knockers

Suitcases that have seen many travels in faraway places, fur coats to keep you cosy

Fruit and Veg

Winter sunshine

Everything you could possibly want

and of course the mad mad dog has to get in on the action and half of hubby's leg!

Bye for now


  1. It is so annoying when you see a fair or Market that is too far away to visit. It makes it even more terrible when you see things you would buy!
    Lovely blog. Still nice to have a nosey. Xx

  2. Can't beat a nice market. What a darling little dog!

  3. That looks like so much fun! Wish I were there! Could we stop for a hot cup of something too?! Oh and maybe a nibble of something sweet! Shopping always makes me hungry...

  4. Oh the market looks good. Where is it? I might be able to drive over one day.

  5. Hello,
    I really shouldn't look at posts like this, at least when it's so far away. Looks absolutely wonderful!
    I wish we had markets like that :)
    Kindest regards,
    Lilli (in Norway)

  6. Looks amazing - and some sunshine too!

  8. Where WAS that market? I don't recognise the town. M x
