Who needs antiques shops and fairs when you live in Glossop? Yesterday, we wandered around Chorlton before heading back to Glossop for a little whizz around the charity shops. Not a sausage dog was to be found anywhere. However, we spotted that the Glossop indoor market was still open so went to have a look. Lo and behold, on one of the stalls outside, we saw this:
How’s that for an unusual Italian vase? It doesn’t look like any others I’ve ever seen. The stall holder was a slightly odd man; I couldn’t really understand what he was saying, other than he told me twice that everything on the table top was a pound. Then tried to sell me some Taiwanese cheapo tat, also for a pound: “It’s even nicer, this one.” No, it’s really not, trust me on this.
This has inspired me to go and have an Ebay search for Italian pottery… wish me luck!
