Bit of a different one this week as these items aren't strictly from charity shops. The delectable Mrs D and I had made a date to visit a local craft and vintage fair on Sunday and we had a mooch round the many stalls, mainly as a reccy for me as I'm kicking around the idea of having a stall at one in the future with the lovely Liz from Me And My Shadow.
Anyway, I was so busy making notes that I almost forgot to buy some stuff, but you can't keep a tat addict down and I did managed to make a couple of purchases.
Firstly this children's snot rag, I seem to remember having a set of something similar as a child and the stallholder had lots but at £2 a pop I just opted to buy the one for the sake of nose-talgia (sorry!)
Over the weekend I'd been having a chat with Amanda from The Ana Mum Diary on Twitter about a typewriter she'd seen and was tempted to buy but the price was a little inflated, as you might recall I have a couple of them for crafty purposes and paid under £15 for the pair, Amanda's shop wanted £20 but it did sound rather nice and I told her that if if was still there the next time she passed then it was meant to be and she should get it, it's funny how things that you chat about seem to crop up isn't it?
Well Mrs D knows I love a typewriter and spotted one on a stall and at £9 I couldn't resist (sorry Amanda!). It's aptly named the Lilliput and assume it's a child's typewriter given it's weeny nature. It came with a ribbon and in its own case and has the most wonderful bell when you get to the end of the carriage
I must also take this opportunity to thank Mr Right for his patience as I'm slowly turning our bedroom into a typing pool!
Right, that's it for this week, I'm sure normal service will be resumed next time.
Linking up with Magpie Monday...
