As we strolled out of the car park the first shop to greet us was the book shop, its name certainly made me smile.
The bakers and little tea room was a delight, all dressed ready for the season, the reflections in the window made me smile.
Next stop was the market, small but nice to browse.
A little stroll brings you to some wonderful old buildings, with courtyards and floor upon floor of antiques. Each area better than the next. There was so much that I would have brought home.
I loved the baskets, the quilt and the pretty doll...
Vintage bikes seem to feature a lot in Horncastle, a real joy to see them used for advertising.
Not only were the buildings a delight to see, it was lovely to see the shop windows.
Each window display was an inspiration, it was also a delight to see the reflections and shadows adding to the magic. We of course made a day of it and enjoyed lunch out, we were seated downstairs with all the old fireplaces and breadovens still in place it really was like going back in time, a joy to see and I can report that it was a wonderful meal.
To close, a trip to Horncastle would not be complete without going to look at the ducks.
Finally before heading home we did have a browse around a couple of charity shops, I could not believe my eyes when I saw one of the items I had been looking for. I wanted a ceramic rolling pin and lo and behold there was one.
You did read it right £2.49...it was mine. All ready for the mammoth bake that I had yesterday. I will save that for another day. It was stir up Sunday yesterday, did you get your Christmas puddings made?
See you soon.
