Searching for Antiques in Henley-on-Thames

Henley-on-Thames is a beautiful market town set in Oxfordshire. Well known for the Henley Regatta and Henley Festival, it is clear to see why this town is just so picturesque for such grand events.

So, there was nowhere else more fitting than here to continue my quest to find some rare antique gems.. 

The first shop we visited was a quaint little bookshop, perfect for collectors books..

 We stumbled upon a lovely antique shop on the high street, called The Vintage Look

 As you can see, they have such a wide range of antique pieces, you are bound to find something you like!

 There is so much to see in this shop and it's certainly worth a visit if you ever find yourself in Henley. 

After some negotiating the fortunate pieces were a pair of boxing hare bookends and an antique jewellery box, which I shall enjoy restoring and adding my own touch to!

 Despite my frantic searching whilst the majority of the shops were closing up due to the Bank Holiday, I still managed to nab a few fortunate pieces

We walked away feeling rather smug with our haggling and delighted with our purchases...

 And now onto the restoration work, and continue my search for some more antique pieces..
