Treasure hunting - Lichfield Antiques

August 17, 2017

Curborough Countryside Centre is a little gem tucked away just outside of Lichfield City Centre. We’ve filled most of our house with bits and pieces from here over the last four years and is a great place to go antique treasure hunting. There’s also free parking and free admission which is handy. 

 

 

 

 

Not only are the prices good but there's fantastic variety and some quite odd things which I always find fascinating. There's always plenty of coffee bean sacks {Ideal for crafting cushions, or upholstery} old wooden apple crates, stacks of picnic baskets and suitcases {for home storage or wedding seating plans} lots of garden equipment, obelisks and galvanised tubs}, enamel wear and jugs, old Kilner jars, chairs, antique pine chests, tables, antlers, crockery and cutlery, lot and lots and lots…I could go on forever.

 

If you want something old, vintage or quirky you're bound to find it here. They have everything and the kitchen sink.

 

 

{That bread bin- heart eyes}

{Cute French vintage basket- I will make you mine one day}

 

{Love this plunger as a quirky toilet roll holder- I know i'm sad!}

{Love, love, love!}

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

{OH MY!}

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lots of these planted wheelbarrows across the centre. 

 

 

 

 

{The scent from this rose is amazing, it's got to be David Austin?}

 

 


The problem is our house is pretty much full up now but it's still a lovely morning out. There are lots of other small independent shops there and the Lichfield Garden Centre.

 

 

I did make a purchase recently- this lovely rust heart stake for the garden {which reminds me I need to get back to David Austin to pick up some more roses for the garden}

 

You can find more info here. I try to pop over every now and again as it’s just down the road for me, you never know you might see me there!
