Fakenham Market Finds

Well actually, this was not found on the market, it was found on market day in a charity shop! I’m really loving the wonderful, kitsch, perpetual calendar I found. It’s a real blast from the 70’s when I was growing up. I got this fab thing for just £1.00.P1030670
It beats peering at a screen looking for the date ! 🙂

Onion Harvest

A nice sunny day at last, so we decided to harvest our onions. They are a good size this year, just one advantage of all the rain!

Fakenham Market Finds

I haven’t been sharing my finds for a while have I. I’ve been so busy doing so much and haven’t had time to report back to you folks.

These are the lovely finds from last week. A really lovely Japanese lacquer box and a beautiful little art nouveau book of poems by Elizabeth Barratt Browning 1903.

Market finds

Both for only £2.50, what a treat! 🙂

Bookshelves

I bought some shelves from Ebay the other day, the catch was they were collection only, I liked them so much that it was worth an hours drive. We went to collect them yesterday and made a mini vacation out of it and took some sandwiches, went to the Cathedral and sat by the river.
