I was slowly leafing through box after box of postcards at the boot this morning when a lady came up and offered £80 for the lot. The stallholder and the lady haggled for a bit and then settled on £100. I carried on pulling out what I wanted. Then they remembered I was there which was a bit of a problem for their deal. The stallholder didn't know what to do, so I told them they would have to wait as I there first and I hadn't finished looking. Glad I kept them hanging on as I picked out some real beauties.
A few stalls on and I found this pair smooching away.
A bit more of a wander and a friend of mine spotted these glittery baubles for me. There are beautiful reds and hot pinks in the box too. That makes it three weeks of vintage christmas do dahs.
I had to have this badge just because. Hope nobody gets too bossy around here.
I also brought home a bit of Carltonware and some more china to fill those shelves when I set up shop again.
Lovely Emma of Silver Pebble recently asked me to make her some Happy Days Bunting. She needs it to decorate her summer house as part of the Artists Open Studio's. Well all fifteen triangles have just been hooked and joined together, just need to sew in those ends.
Emma also commissioned me to make her a Dingle Dangle brooch, but one with a wee difference with a leaf or two entwined at the top. So I'm searching out just the right leaf at the moment. I'll show you when all is done and dusted.
Now going forward a day or two - do you want to see what we'll be doing on Sunday?
We'll be at Pugs in the Park. The first ever in Norwich as far as I know. Alfie Blue needs a bit of a polish and I'm hoping to find time to knit him a smart Hells Angels collar cover. Hope there are lots of other daft owners there too.
