This collection filled a large tin and includes lots of vintage buttons, ric rac, bias binding, ribbon, pins, needles and poppers. The little old man charged me £2 for the lot and included the Royal Doulton swan with flowers tucked on the left of the picture. I think he was just delighted that someone was going to use some of his late wife's sewing bits, he was very sweet and we chatted for ages.
I was very excited about the next bargain as I have wanted some wooden shelves to paint cream and put in the bathroom to house my ever growing collection of glass candlesticks. I have bookmarked lots of them on ebay but they always sell for more than I want to pay. - these cost me the grand sum of £1 - I was a very happy lady I can tell you!
I always keep one eye open for any Cath Kidston stuff but have never been lucky until now :-) (I am 90% sure this is CK fabric but you may know better)
These curtains have been hand made and are fully lined, but have never been used - we are planning an extension so I may end up with a room to put them in or if not I will cut them up and use the fabric for something else
What a successful morning, and now I am off to sort out my seedlings - hope you have some of this lovely sunshine were you are.
