You know I like to potter around car boot and table top sales don't you? Well, last Sunday there was a big one in the local leisure centre. I do try to make the effort to go and have a pootle about if it is on, but it is very crowded as they cram a lot of tables into the space.
People barge into you and grab things as you look at them, it is not a place for the faint-hearted, and manners seem to be left at the door!
But I did manage to pick up this.... a bundle of vintage tray cloths and doilies, for just one shiny pound!
One whole super shiny pound coin - what a bargain. (Actually, the woman looked at me as though I was nuts, perhaps she thought it might not sell!)
Look at all these lovely bits and pieces. Did I tell you it was just one shiny pound?
So, there are little bits, lacy bits, embroidered bits.
Covers for the backs of chairs - I remember my Nana having those when I was younger. Woe-betide if you messed them up!
Possibly hankies, but they are a little small I think. Perhaps ladies had more delicate noses back then. I need a Kleenex man-size for my hooter.
Beautifully embroidered tray cloths, a little yellowing in places, but gorgeous all the same.
And this, I think it is a small pillow or cushion case. Pretty nevertheless.
