It was a scorcher last Sunday but we were up with the larks and rummaging by 8am. Twas the last one for my Aunt who had been over visiting from the states for the past 3 weeks and it turned out to be a real good one for us all. Are you like me and get really excited if you find something great early on, I do and it puts a spring in my step and a smile on my face, sooo easily pleased!
So here is the basket just brimming over. I didn't take the stuff out of it for two days as I liked how it all looked and didn't want to disturb it, some may call me slightly mad tee hee. Are you intriqued, do you want a closer look inside?
This lot was from one lady, the pillow is so lovely and soft and looks brand new. Think I was drawn to the leg warmers as a throw back from my youth in the eighties!
Not a very good piccie I know, why did I put cream against cream, doh! The two glass candlesticks are to be glued onto some plates for cake stands, the shape and size are just perfect, need to find more of these.
Aren't these bottles just so pretty, can't wait to put single stems of white flowers in them on the kitchen table.
A pot for my herbs, or a Gozunder as my mum and aunt called it. After looking at them blankly they explained that it was because it went under the bed! Right, of course, silly me.
And filling up the Gozunder is this lovely stash of vintage cotton reels that were hiding under a nice ladies tressel, I couldn't believe they hadn't been snapped up. There's even a card of original stocking thread for darning holes in ladies stockings which I find absolutely amazing that they had the paitence to do that.
And so back to the basket which is now bereft of all it's goodies. The guy I got this from told me it was from his family and nearly 80 years old. How he could get rid of it in the first place is beyond me, but that is men for ya! So for a mere £2 I got to take it with me and fill it up as I went round the boot fair. I kept secretly smiling away to myself at thinking how lucky I was to get it.
