It was rather a quiet affair, rumour has it that another local booty site has doubled in size and all the hardened booters had took their chances there. I wasn't tempted, I had my first coffee and a toasted teacake on my mind.
I can't say I did brilliantly and I suppose most people may not bother to blog such paltry finds but I am one for sharing, can't help it.
Being that I am on the look out for any bright graphics for my new kitchen shelves (they are still but an idea) I couldn't resist this little Danish pin dish.
Anything involving turquoise, orange and flower shaped has me reaching into my penny purse.
I also bought this OXO tin. Bit predictable?
What about this box of matches to add to my smallish collection.
If only it were a print......it would be perfect for my playroom wall.
Bit of haberdashery...
If wooden cotton reels are on offer at a good price I can never resist.
The gentleman selling the cottons had them displayed in the most amazing wooden drawers. Glass fronted, perfect amount of wear and tear and unfortunately not for sale. I will dream about that cabinet tonight, of that I am sure.
These are rather pretty.
Vintage fibre glass curtains. I am sadly allergic to fibre glass so these will be sold.
I love the big bold flowers and the 'in your face' turquoise colour.
My next item is maybe a bit odd but I am mad for them, always have been.
Think it goes back to when my Aunty Ruth bought me a playmobil camper van many moons ago. I just loved it.
This is on a slightly smaller scale but nevertheless rather adorable.
Just need to find the perfect towing vehicle now. I am thinking citroen 2CV but I doubt they come with a tow bar.
Nearly done now folks, only 2 more thingys.
Is anyone still with me at this point??
I paid a bit more than I would normally for these old postcards but I just had to have them.
I hope you can see from the pics that their skirts are all embroidered in lovely silk thread.
None of them have any scrawl to the back which is rather a bonus. Do you like them?
Lastly, most boringly, but always handy to carry ones stash.
This old suitcase requires some serious TLC and probably a fabric makeover.
One of the catches is a bit dodgy but I know a man that can sort that little prob out.....MR BETTY!!!
