Now, I can shop. I can really, really shop. But these 2, Linda and Iris, they can really, really shop too!
Just take a look at the little red car and picture, if you will, the following:
1 fold up table
3 large fruit picking baskets
2 huge zinc containers (approximately the size of small dustbins)
And in additon an assortment of tins, crockery, enamelware, 6 pairs of crochet curtains, embroidery ephemera, a vanity case, an aluminium kitchen utensil rack, a demijohn and, well those are just the items I remember.
The boot was crammed, bien sur. I had a fruit basket full of "le tresor" balanced on my knee and Iris was enclosed in the back seat by her gorgeous chippy fold up metal table! Didn't we do well!
There are plenty of lovely items that will be on sale in Histoires in September after I reopen after a long summer break. Here's a taster...
Beautiful art deco spelter bookends on black marble bases with a stag and a doe and fawn
art nouveau irridescent glass inkwell with bronze lid and original glass ink bottle
such an unusual round gold metal wire box, lovely and tarnished
1960s retro kitchen wall clock by Japy
A simply huge monogram stamp for the initial E
Tall blue graniteware enamel water pitcher
And there'll be plenty more...
I think we'll take a van next time :)
