I had no idea what to call this blog post, it hardly even suffices as a post, but on Sunday morning I found myself in the worlds most Instagrammable coffee shop/jumble sale/junk yard and I couldn't help but whip out my camera and take some photos. It's in West Bay (the home of Broadchurch- for those of you who might know that reference better) just up the road from where I live. My parents insisted we go, and oh me oh my was it an utter treat.
You walk into what, at first sight is an old junk yard with derelict buildings. But as you get closer you realise everything is strategically placed...
For me and my mum, self confessed lovers of all things second hand, it's like a giant paradise. To make matters even better, the main attraction is a giant barn, converted into a cafe in which every single thing is for sale. The tables, the chairs, ornaments litter the place and there's a little someone watching your every move (who is also for sale...)
We arrived quite late so the morning buzz had disappeared and we almost had the whole place to ourselves! To fuel our window shopping we decided to take a seat and order some hot chocolate to keep the cold at bay.
Even Elvis got involved...
I can't wait to come back when the weather is a bit nicer! It didn't put us off but the continuing fear of battling rain and pebbly ground on crutches meant we didn't spend as much time as we would have liked!
Unfortunately we didn't take the leopard home as a little mate for Elvis but I have no doubt myself and my mum would've spent hundreds if we had the choice! (Maybe it's a blessing in disguise we didn't stay too long....)
If you're ever in the area definitely come and check out this little treasure, it's an utter delight to lose yourself in and there's so much more to it than the photos show you!
Ciao for Now!
