recent finds, part two

so, most people appreciate bank holidays for the extra lie in- for me, it means time for really really good car boot sales. in particular, hook road arena in epsom- i completely recommend it to anyone nearby!

i hadn’t gone looking for anything in particular, but there are always wishlists in the back of my mind (mostly made up of big old furniture that i don’t have room for).

one of these wishlist items was a typewriter… oh, i have wanted one ever since my bright pink childhood toy version, and have been on the hunt for years.
i almost bought one a few weeks ago at an antiques fair, but so glad i waited for this one- it works 100% and best of all, was only £3! que very happy me.

my friend also found me an encyclopedia of knitting which is awesome, and i also found the vogue sewing book, a leather belt, (another) embroidery hoop, some chinos and some clarks patent loafers that i haven’t decided the fate of yet… all in all, an amazing day for thrifty finds!
