World's Smallest Street Market and Other Dundee Adventures

I spent most of the weekend in the fair city of Dundee, discovering new places to eat and adding many things to my expanding wishlist. On Saturday I visited the DCA (one of my favourite spots in the city) for their Summer craft and market. So many beautiful things! I especially loved Rosie Kimber's beautiful jewellery creations. Browsing round the fair was followed by lunch at Avery & Co. It was delicious and the staff were lovely. I'm already planning to head back soon and try their Marmalade Mojitos, they sounds amazing!

Sunday consisted of the World's Smallest Street Market located on the tiny Johnston's Lane. There were lots of vintage treats to be found, including books, records and homeware. Plus jewellery from Jane Gowans, cushions and prints by Sooz Gordon Designs, fresh fruit and veg from Fraser's and  outdoor barbering from Benjamin Barker Barber & Shop. The live music also added to the jovial atmosphere. After spending some time soaking this up I then ventured inside Spex Pistols and tried on ALL of the glasses. It's amazing how such a small shop can have so much choice! I already have my next pair on order and about a million others on the lust list.

After being suitable cheered by the bustle of the teeny market it was lunch time. A few short steps away and I landed in The Tinsmith, a new pub with a great interior, tasty food and delicious cider.

All in all it was a rather enjoyable weekend. I'm loving that Dundee has so many great places to eat and drink and that there's fun events for me to go to that are a bit closer to (my) home. Long may it continue!

What were you up to at the weekend?
