Oklahoma, Manchester

We stopped for lunch in Oklahoma, which is a fabulous quirky Vegetarian & Vegan cafe serving the yummiest freshly made food. And not only is is a cafe but it is also a great kitsch gift shops. They had cabinets full of unusual and handmade jewellery, greeting cards, tin wind-up toys... too many things to list. Oh how I wish it was nearer, I'd be in there all the time!

Affleck's Palace

This Saturday I took a trip to Manchester to visit my good friend Amanda, who is more of a big sister to me, to celebrate her birthday. She met me at the train station and took me around some of her favourite places to shop and eat, we then finished off the day with cocktails... it was such a great weekend.

One of the places we went to was Affleck's Palace, which is a large indoor market situated in a 4 story building. They describe themselves as an emporium of eclecticism, a totem of indie commerce and a great place to shop for anything from a top hat to a tattoo. I loved it. One of the things I loved about it the most was the art on the walls on the building... great stuff.

G Dad's Collectables

Today I had the urge to go to G Dad's Collectables in Old Wolverton... it's one of my favourite places for a good rummage for vintage and retro goodies. They have everything from figurines, jewellery, cutlery, crockery, clothes, old toys and books. I love it. They also have a cute little 1940s inspired tea room for a cream tea after you've had a good look around.

I always come home with something from there and today was no different, I purchased two very cute cake stands.

You could spend hours rummaging

And today I went shopping and treated myself to a few things that I needed... wanted.

Woburn Coffee House

What a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning, catching up with a good friend and testing out a cute coffee shop in the village.

I walk past Woburn Coffee House every time I walk into the village and every time the selection cute vintage tea cups and cake stands in the window draw my attention. I've wanted to go in there for ages now, so when I arrange to meet up with my lovely friend Amanda for morning coffee, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to check it out.

It was beautiful inside, so many pretty things for us to look at as well as the gorgeous looking cakes. We ordered a cream tea, coffee and a croque monsieur. The food was as beautiful as the place and all freshly made and really tasted. We were made very welcome by the friendly, chatty staff... so glad we chose to go there.

The perfect Saturday morning.
