A little bit of 'This 'N' That' in Totnes ! ;-)

This morning was a Totnes morning!
I wish every morning was just that!
My favourite shop in Totnes....
This 'N' That
It's a wonderful experience, an education, a real history lesson and a wander into one's past..all rolled into one!

And this is what you get...!


Or some of it!







I even spotted some of Michele's cards!!
These bloggers get everywhere!

I bought....
this poster, which now hangs nicely in the 'Dutch' area of my room!! ;-)
Well, when I say 'Dutch' area, what I really mean is that I have 6 coasters and a piece of Dutch Delft!



At the market I found ...

And my new summer attire on the same stall...well I wish... as it is mini Boden!

I have plans for it ;-) LOL!

And now the best bit ...
Speaking to Lesley at 'This 'N' That' ...she has got the blogging bug!!!;-)
I think she might be joining us all, in the very near future!
And that will be a real treat!
Ah Totnes! Don't you just love it?
I do!
Happy weekend everyone! ;-)

Oh I really like the look of that shop. I could easily spend my pennies in there!

What a fab shop. When we come down to cornwall in the summer i may check it out as we will probably stop off in Devon. x

Well Sal, you know my feelings about This'n'That so I'm feeling very jealous! We have so far bought 10 of the Enid Blyton/Eileen Soper prints, in fact we have the one in your picture of the cows with the Cornishware china. They are at the framers in Bridport, hope to get them back soon. Great to hear Lesley might start blogging. Now are you sure you can't squeeze into that dress?!
Have a lovely weekend.

I really want to visit Totnes, I've even started dropping hints with Mr Thrifty about going to Devon for our holidays.

I think we all have a lot of this and that at home!

I have some old Ethel Parkinson pictures that feature dutch children being chased by geese, they are really quite scary!

Hope you are enjoying this lovely weather and have a great weekend too!

That is just my kind of shop!

What a super shop - wish we had something like that up here. Do hope it manages to keep going during the recession. I think you must have such a fertile mind - you seem to see possibilities in bits and pieces that you buy.

Wonderful Totnes... Thanks very much for the photos.

sharie said...

Such a lovely shop selling so many pretties. Maybe it is a good job that I don't live near to it otherwise we'd be bankrupt!

We used to 'do' Totnes twice a week but haven't been in a long while ... must make a bigger effort to find this lovely shop where I might seek out some of my 1950s books that I enjoyed as a child!

Well, I'm sat here thinking "Wow!" what a place. . . . I would love to visit in reality but it will probably have to remain a "cyber" visit..... lovely nevertheless. Thanks. x

Josie-Mary said...

I've never been there, has it been there long??? I must get around to popping down soon... :) x

Floss said...

Hi again Sal, and thanks for your comments on my latest post. You can buy tiny little white boards, used in schools so that each child can have one, just like children used to have slates. Maybe you have room for one of them..?

Whiteboards are stock-in-trade for dyslexia teachers, which is my specialism. They allow the complete destruction of evidence, which is invaluable for pupils who have become paranoid about committing their spelling ideas to paper. A child who hates pencil and paper will normally take happily to whiteboards, chalk boards, magnetic drawing boards etc.

I like the look of This and That, I bet you could spend ages there finding little gems and treasures - wish we had something like that round here:)

Bobbie Lynn said...

What a fun place. I could spend hours in a store like that. Just thinking where I could use this and that.

BusyLizzie said...

Hi Sal
I have been to that shop a few times & I LOVE it too! It is just the sort of shop I would want to own!
(with a few vintage frocks thrown in for good measure..)

What a divine shop! Goodness Sal, whatever market you visit has some serious treasure for sale. That vintage embroidered linen is to die for. Emma x

Hi Sally, Thanks for posting the lovely pics of my shop (This'n'That). I'm flattered to see it sitting there amongst all of your news & pics. Yes, I have got the blogging bug and will be launching my blog any day now...It's almost at the top of my mile long 'Things I really want to do' list. You'll be the first to know when it takes off. Meanwhile I will continue to enjoy my regular visits to salssnippets for inspiration.
Love Lesley X
