Ipswich

I finally got to Ipswich to take a look at the Suffolk Craft Society Christmas Exhibition which was lovely so many things to look at, so many things that I wish I could afford, and all set in the wonderful Town Hall building.

The stair way in the entrance hall

Looking in to the Suffolk Craft exhibition

View of the market from the steps of the Town Hall

This is the building used by Lakeland plastics
- its a shop that sells kitchen paraphernalia

We also went in to a very posh shop that sold amazing things at even more amazing prices, but the best thing was the building that it was in, it was so old, a very crooked ancient house that was fascinating, so we had a good look around, mainly at the building and it's construction. (As we couldn't afford the furniture or the one off designer clothes, which we would have loved.) Then in the attic we came across these amazing wall stencils that had apparently been done at least two hundred years ago- according to the man in the shop.

'You never know what you might find' is our new catch phrase, we are planning a new adventure to find hidden gems in our local buildings..... I will keep you posted.. perhaps in another blog?
