We went to Salts Mill today for a big family meet-up.
Salts is a large converted mill within the World Heritage Site village of Saltaire in Bradford.
Besides being a wonderfully utopian village, laid-out beautifully by mill owner Titus Salt, Saltaire also boasts a fine riverside park, boutique restaurants, artisan bread shops, retro stores and monumental architecture.
Inside the Mill is the David Hockney gallery, Hockney being England's greatest living artist, together with a vast airy book shop taking up a whole floor of the old loom shed.
In one of the countless side rooms is a large antiques emporium and I sampled its delights once mpre this very day.
Among the vintage toys on offer were some real bargains and some not so:
Dinky SPV loose and incomplete 7 pounds
Space 1999 Bagatelle 26 pounds
Real Hair Action Man, dressed and sat on Palitoy Motorcycle 89 pounds
There were also cabinets full of Matchbox superfast, whizzwheels and Corgi Major, along with Daleks, Dr.Who annuals and lots and lots of Seventies kitsch.
Well worth a visit if you are in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England.
Speaking of Dinky SPV's here's an interesting 'find' I made on You Tube today. Its from 5 years ago where a young lad and his Dad are metal detecting at night and stumble across an old Dinky SPV no less!
