To be honest, I don't go shopping quite as often as I once did, purely because I don't have the time or the space at home to put all the things I buy. However! I did happen to notice the local Cricket Club were having a car boot sale. So, off I popped, and came across this....
Yes! It's a old manual typewriter! Isn't it lovely! I really, really love the colour and what's even better, it's in full working order complete with ribbon :)
I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with it yet. It would be great to have on display on a shelf somewhere or to type letters with it, if I actually wrote letters! But, anyho, it had to be worth it for a mere £2.50. Bargain! :)
The next little bit of lovely I came across, was this....
It's a perfect little vase, actually, to put things in like - New Crochet Hooks!
Now then, these weren't exactly a car-booty find, but I have been pondering over these for a little while. Umm-ing and Arr-ing thinking 'do I really need more hooks to add to my collection?' Well, to my surprise, my wonderful husband thought I did (thank you, my dear) :)
These hooks are called 'Symfonie' wood crochet hooks by Knit Pro. They are made from dyed beech wood and are absolutely gorgeous and a serious bit of Yum!
Have you bought any lovely bargains lately?
