So just now I was talking about Ashburton and it’s abundance of vintage shops, and it seemed rude not to show you.
And there were more!
Ashburton centre really only has two streets, but they are full of charm, here are some views.
So who’s a fan of vintage? if you are then you’d be in heaven in Ashburton. I’m not, it’s too twee for my taste. Having said that, I wouldn’t say no to an old typewriter or some cameras!

Oh Wow! It’s a re~purposing paradise, Gilly! I sometimes find these shops have a melancholy atmosphere and have to leave right away ~ but these frontages look very pretty. Strangely I by~passed Ashburton many times when I lived in Plymouth and Cornwall, but never stopped by. 🙂
Nice to occasionally visit but I agree too twee to live there!
I’ll have the typewriter and cameras, too, if there are any left!
What a pretty place, Gilly. I’m also not into vintage. Maybe if someone were to give me a vintage Rolls, I might change my mind. 🙂
Ooh a lovely trip down memory lane 😀 My mum grew up just outside of Ashburton and my sister and brother-in-law got married there four years ago! It’s a beautiful place 🙂
Fantastic selection of antique shops, Gilly. I have a very modern home. BUT … Love browsing and can appreciate the history of the items.
I’m sure the shopkeepers wouldn’t be happy. 😎
Looks like a fun place to go for a stroll with the camera ..
So quaint and charming. I’d love to visit, stroll down the avenues, and treasure hunt in the shops.
The chocolate shop is wondrous!
What an interesting village. Much changed. Haven’t been there for donkeys years. Good pics, as usual
My kind of place to mooch but I wouldn’t spend much. 🙂 🙂
I would certainly like this place. Here we sometimes call it ‘antiquing’ and I love that. These days can’t afford to buy as much but love to still browse these kind of quaint little shops.
