From then on I know this will be good. Six beautiful frill edged pink utility plates. On the next stall I buy a huge icecream tub of buttons and buckles. After sorting out all the muddy colours, I'm left with this glorious selection. BUT - most exciting of all are the coloured crochet hooks. They've been in my mental shopping list for a while now and today two stalls had all of these to offer me. I have plans for teaching children to crochet as an after school club and wanted something more exciting than grey steel for them to learn with. The floral pot they are in was only 20p on another stall, so that was popped into my bag too.
Now for one of my favourite finds of the day. I picked him up thinking he would be £4 at least, but he was 50p only. I don't think the man knew what treasure a Stanley dog is these days. He has sat in the middle of the other lads avoiding eye contact and just trying to blend in. They seem to be getting along fine so far.
