A Vintage Paradise- Stable Antiques

I love ‘ Stable Antiques’  in Storrington ,West Sussex.  I have been visiting the shop for fifteen years now and im sure a good percentage of ‘stuff’ in our house comes from there. The shop building itself is now over two hundred years old and was formerly as the name suggests, an old stable and yard. Once you have managed to get through all the old garden pots and troughs, the odd fireplace surround or table out the front , then inside you will find  a maze of little stable alcoves and rooms  crammed to the ceiling  with vintage paraphernalia, antiques and the odd new thing. The list of stock is endless  and I personally can rummage and reminisce through the stock for hours.

Vintage delight

I love these books
The garden courtyard with its covered well that used to supply the stables with water
I really, really love this picnic set, I havent seen one with this design before

Then when you have finished inside, you can pop outside to the tiny courtyard at the back that has been transformed into a garden area with plants for sale in amongst a few pieces of garden salvage .

The shop has a website but it needs updating, this is what the owner ‘Ian’ said not me!

But for contact and opening times here it is

Small from the outside but a maze of stables of vintage inside
