Here is our expenditure for the 30 or so minutes:
40p - entry fee (20p each)
50p - leather binocular case (minus handles)
30p - 11 metres of binding (length as stated on the cardboard - to be used as handles for the above)
50p - Bambi tapestry - to be made into a bag for Bronte
50p - two white Saxifrage plants
20p - each for a 'range' of vintage children's games
30p - old very large tapestry of cottage by the sea
150p - a selection of Edwardian whitework embroideries - numbering about 6 pieces in total
100p - two vintage embroidered tablecloths
We were most pleased with the binocular case (minus handles) and that the stall just a few along was selling haberdashery so we were able to purchase braiding to fashion handles - Bronte is most pleased! Wish I had bought more of the old games - there were lots of them but the 'needs not wants' rule sometimes has to come into play. Mind you that rule was dropped when I bought the tablecloths....I could of course do the usual thing where I list the things that I did not buy and chew off my knuckles thinking about it....
I remembered how many, many years ago Dom had bought my good self an old binocular case from Camden market....what goes around....
How many beautifully stitched little leather bags could you buy for that price in the shops I wonder
Bronte has always been very fond of this old straw hat! Sometimes we decorate it for Easter!
Oh and some fabric pennants - I only bought these because we are going to Venice this year so I am going to fashion a bag and sew these on!
So very little spent but good fun was had. I hope that you had some 'good' purchases too and don't worry I will also have to be having La Grande Clearout to compensate!
PS: A strange thing has happened where I cannot reply to comments (even if I have logged myself out) and cannot access my own blog directly - I have to go round the houses and access via Blogger, I usually forget my password and have to start all over again. I am sure it will sort itself out eventually but irritating until it does!
