Will this cold weather ever end? It is putting a serious dampner on my foraging - I just want to stay indoors and keep warm. However, like everyone I am forced outside to hunter/gather as it seems the family require feeding more than once a week, so I combined the dreaded supermarket run with a little recreational retail therapy and this is what I found.
A pretty spiffy reproduction Arnotts tin - with hinge intact - probably won't cut that one up as it will be useful for storage. Also a couple of dotty tins and a cute one from the USA that looks like a cross-stitch. Wonder of wonders I found that bag-o-buttons for a mere 99 cents - practically unheard of these days! My favourite thing though is the bright red necklace - double stranded and made of glass - I am guessing circa mid-50's. I love vintage beads - I imagine these were worn with a very spiffy "frock"!
