Can you make out what I got (actually this wasn't all of it - some of it was already in the wash - a pair of 1930's/1940's mens trousers which are hand made with button fly, buttons for braces and turn ups on the bottom. Everyone in the house was grossed out - there were slightly dirty - but they are fab and would be great for re-enactment or a Lindy Hopper. I also got a lovely mirror with bevel edges but that is still in the boot.
Look at these lovely old books. The Ladybird one was printed in the 70's I believe but the illustrations are very 40's - I love it. I also got the stories for bedtime and a book for girls, an old Peoples Friend craft book with great sewing and knitting patterns for toys.
Some coloured knitting needles, pretty cream and sugar bowl, nursery fabric, glass bowls and a faberoony sewing basket. Just what I needed - My name is Debs and I'm a basketaholic springs to mind. I do have quite a few.
Old receipts and bills from a shop in Sheffield - will have to do some research. They are fascinating and contain letters and advertising which is delightful. K sat for ages looking at them and laughing the language they used back then was so different to now. I think the chap owed money to some people and he was asked to be most polite when speaking to Mr Brown - in other words you owe money so do not get stroppy.
Oh I forgot I got the little boot egg cup and some 1960's funky floral curtains - terry towelling- these would look super in a vintage caravan. I suggested putting them in our bathroom - uh oh - was the reaction from the family. I also got a book of poems by Edward Lear which is charming lots of funny illustrations and verses. Hours of entertainment.
A pretty good stash I think - probably cost me about £25 tops. What fun much more entertaining that going clothes shopping who would want a new top when you can have all those goodies for less. JOY.
Some of this is for me, me, me and some I think I will put on ebay. Decisions, decisions.
Oh whilst previewing I realised I hadn't mentioned the china cat and dog, the vintage cloth, the German biscuit tin, the Ford motor car pin dish. Gosh I did get a lot didn't I - then I wonder why my house is always messy. Mmm. That doesn't take much working out does it.
