Day Trip: Aberfoyle Antique Market (Part 1)

Last weekend was absolutely beautiful. After weeks of rain and fluctuating temperatures that had us sporting our winter coat one day and a light denim the next it felt like it was suddenly summer! Perfect temperatures in the mid-to-high 20s and lots of sunshine, but a nice breeze too.

As much as I love living in the city (especially during the summer), I have to admit it’s nice to get out of Toronto sometimes. A few friends and I made our way bright and early Sunday morning to the Aberfoyle Antique Market. Just South of Guelph, the Aberfoyle market is a great place to wander around for a few hours. Tons of furniture and books and odds and ends – everything from vintage door handles to jewelry to Canadiana memorabilia (think vintage hockey posters and old street signs).  Here are a few photos from our day, and I’ll post some more next week.
