I popped into this favourite second hand shop on my way back from Toulouse the other day, and became increasingly disillusioned as I browsed amongst the over-priced, factory-made, modern tat. It was a very bad day for troc, or so I thought.
Just before leaving, I gave a last glance at the bric-a-brac section, and spotted something underpriced, handmade and vintage!
Look at the details on this tiny little pincushion! Do you think it is Native American? It looks like a moccasin, except for the pointy toe.
I had plans for it, next to the little pincushion with plastic birds which Son 2 bought in his 2 Euro Challenge, but I lost it! Ben and I concluded it had fallen off the car seat where I'd left it, and was lost in a carpark somewhere...
However, Seek and Ye Shall Find, or, more accurately, do a proper tidy-up of clutter and discover it where it fell off the spare room bed when unpacking.
Thanks for all your kind and supportive comments - believe me, I NEVER overdo it when I do the housework!
