|The only surviving oriel window in the ruins -- it gave me goosebumps to know that Richard III, my historical crush, stood at this window and saw this beautiful view.|
I had heard a rumour that there was a little place to buy dolls house items in Whitby, and I found it in the Shambles Market in Whitby Marketplace. It's called Angel, and has a small selection of mostly standard Dollshouse Emporium items. I was able to get a few pretty prezzies for my dollshouse club friends as well as good deals on electric candlesticks.
Yesterday was a quiet day for me while David went out to photograph some of the trains at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Later on I tap danced with the Easington Tappers! I think for next year I'm going to buy proper tappy shoes and really give this my serious consideration :)
Today we drove down to Hull to see a friend, stopping in Scarborough on our way down. We were able to visit two brilliant shops here: The Train Shop (where we picked up our first N scale loco and carriages) and, just around the corner, Box O' Trix, which sells some very special dolls house minis. This is well worth a visit if you're going to be in Scarborough.
Tomorrow is our last real day in England before we spend all Saturday travelling. It's been such a great trip, and I'll try to post some photos of my buys once I get home!
