I was however pleasantly surprised to discover a few treasures yesterday...My favourite find was this little French basket with the special little details of a velvet ribbon ruffle and satin ribbon trim along the base...
Love the hand painted roses too!
Last week in the shop I sold an old Sanderson hat box - I hadn't banked on being able to replace it again...but ta-da, I will be able to, albeit with a slightly smaller size; a find I was very pleased to discover.
Love these old French catalogues full of fashions, home wares and furniture...Oh to be able to shop at these prices!
A fab 50's angora mix cardigan and the crinoline lady will be useful to hold my business cards.
A good rummage through the stock of one of my favourite dealers turned up some gorgeous French fabric scraps and on another stand I bought some lovely diamante costume jewellery.
Finally this little treasure was waiting for me inside one of the 'sheds' - such a sweet little thing, probably from around the 1930's; she has the teeniest little porcelain head with bead headpiece.
