One such is the Candybelle Vintiques Fair held in the moribund Academy Shopping Centre, Aberdeen.
I scored this lovely (1970s?) dress by German label Emmeline Wessel (£30) and gold lurex 60s evening bag (£8). There were also amazing 60s homewares and a VW campervan selling old luggage and decorative items. Use facebook, council websites or flyers to track down your nearest pop up fairs, it's well worth it!

I bought this from ebay, where it cost the same as a rubbish plastic new one. This one is all metal with a billion fancy nozzles. The project goes on...

Appropriately enough, the house is used as an arts centre and used to be an artist's home. The interiors are a time capsule of Victorian life and full of fascinating things.
The owner also built an enormous, creepy mortuary chapel for his family which is housed in a nearby cemetery and is well worth a visit.
I discovered the house while lost on a badly signed road detour, which proves there is always a silver lining...
