Fleamarket loot

July 07, 2013

Today, in our hometown Zutphen, there was a fleamarket being held. Ofcourse Ben and I had to check out if there was some stuff for us - having both a bit of a hangover as it was my fathers wedding yesterday and I was a witness! However, indeed there was stuff for us! Ben found two old frames from the 1930s and I found clothespins pre-1940s. The best thing I found were two workbooks dating from the 1930s aswell about trimmings and finishings and sewing patterns. It's full of selfmade patterns, notes, etcetera. It feels as if I am reading someone's diary. It was so, so cheap! Together they were 5€! That's a real steal!

It made me a happy girl!
