Today I was up bright and early to head to the local trash and treasure market. The grey clouds, pouring rain and chilly wind were not going to deter me - for 2 years I've lived 5 minutes away from this market yet for some reason or another have never managed to get there. But not today. I can be quite determined when I want to be.
And what a gem of a market! Tucked away in a car park but full of great vintage stuff, lots of nanna crochet, and yes, quite a bit of trash also but the good definitely outweighed the bad. I picked up some more vintage aprons to add to my collection, even though it was only yesterday that I cleaned out my stash and listed some on EBay. Oops. I also got a cute enamel teapot (alas, none of the nanna crocheted tea cosies were big enough to fit it), a lovely English china plate and a great metal ice-cream tin. Oh, and quite a lot of pretty coloured knitting needles. And um, some plants for the garden. I think that's it....
I'm off now to bake this apple cake, and stew up some pears on the stove with some cloves and cinnamon. All while wearing a cute vintage apron of course.
