A good haul from Bath and Wells charity shops this weekend whilst visiting the folks! I found a G1 My Little Pony, Lalaloopsy, Mr Men, Hungry Caterpillar, Jackie, Trapdoor, Sesame Street, Lemony Snicket, and a couple of LP’s.
I’d say this years Halloween decoration buying was a success! So many spooky fairylights to choose from. Well, I say choose from, I think I bought them all…
When we pulled the carpet up in the back room a couple of years ago, rather than underlay we discovered sheets of newspaper dating from Nov/Dec 1959 – the date my partner’s parents moved into the house. I whipped a small selection away before the builders arrived and stashed them in a cupboard until last week when I finally went through them.
I bought this book a few weeks back from a charity shop. One look at the cover and I knew it had to be mine! It’s surprisingly informative even if the designs are now dated. Plus, I own a knitting machine so it may even come in useful if ever I decide to knit myself a batwing jumper…
I was really pleased to find these two Roald Dahl LP a short while ago, which are actually read by the author himself. There were at least four in this series (1975-1980), three read by Dahl and one by his wife Particia Neal. They have heavy cardboard covers and seem to be fairly hard to find in the UK.
I bought several LP’s whilst visiting the folks a couple of weeks back. There was a whole hoard of soft rock cover albums, and several copies of Felicity Kendal to choose from. I also found a few singles, including a gate-fold.
On going through a few boxes and bags stored in the attic this weekend, I discovered a selections of items from the early 1970’s worth a second look. Amongst all the old paperwork, there were piles of cut-outs and clippings from various magazines, including sewing patterns and recipes, there was a large amount of greeting cards (used and unused) and a few old paper bags.
Yes, I actually bought this cookery book! Replete with hearts, romantic quotes, health tips, and knick-knacks galore, this is now one of my favourite recipe books which I don’t use, along with my Worzel Gummidge cookbook. Both classics.
