These are all recent carboot finds- I have had a good run of finds recently. I know carboot sales might be a bit of a mystery outside of the UK- I'll try and remember to take my camera this Sunday and take some pics for you and explain how it works.
A vintage advertising tea towel for Babycham, iconic little Babycham deer-v. cute
As that is a bit of a collectable, I put that in my etsy shop- gotta fund the fabric purchases somehow!
These are two linens so lovely...
a little handworked sampler of stitches, such beautiful colours and work,
and a tea tray cloth with lovely machined motifs.
This one has a Christmas feel- with the exception of the strawberries, placemat size.
Lots of other magpies missed this one, someone was standing on it when I noticed the fantastic border.
It currently has the very important job of protecting my clear vintage box of fabrics from sunlight.
I loved this little tin- anything that nests inside anything else is appealing and these cutters are a great fit in the tin.
This Minitimer is Italian made and designed by Richard Sapper who turns out to be a very cool designer indeed (Alessi)! It works beautifully.
And to finish, a G plan lamp table, £3 which is about $5 or 4 Euros. IT is a bit tatty at the sides, but what a bargain. It is undergoing restoration- that is a grand way of saying it has wood glue and a pile of books to get the edges of the veneer to stick down on the sides. I have already waxed and polished the drawer front and it is glowing.
Half way through the working week, always a nice place to be
