Saturday Treasures









Well it's been a busy day today. Deb and I had a stall at the local Antiques and Collectables Fair. We haven't done it for ages but we had a lot of stuff cluttering up our spare bedrooms and we decided we needed a clear out. It's a lot of work and we usually end up buying as much as we sell so it defeats the object a bit. But it's good fun and it gives us time to catch up and have a chat.

I brought home some pretty embroidered linens, some old magazines and some millinery flowers and buttons as well as a few bits of ephemera from Debbie's stash.
