Barter Books in Alnwick, Northumberland. One of the biggest second-hand book shops in Britain! Free tea and coffee next to a roaring fire plus a cafe further inside that serves food. Yum. Used to be an old railway station. One of my favouritest places to browse for old books :)

Prior to "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" only ground-floor interior sets, such as the kitchen, existed for The Burrow, while all exterior shots were generated with CGI. “We wanted everything - from the furniture through to the crockery on the kitchen table - to look as if it had been bought in second-hand shops, picked up at swap meets, or rescued from curbs.” - Stephenie McMillan #HarryPotter

Acrylic painting on vintage paper. About the paper : I buy on car boot sale or second-hand store some old french book printed from 1860 to 1930 for the remarkable quality of the paper. It has a good thickness, it is sometimes laminated, and usually it is made from hemp or cotton. Furthermore, touched by the time, each sheet is unique. A little bit yellow, usually with some brown spot, it also release the smell of old that I like.
