I like nothing better than a good rummage and my stash has been little more than a decent stash of old sheets and knitting patterns ... and they're none too exciting in dribs and drabs.
So I thought I'd share this nifty item I got almost exactly a month ago at the Ballarat Super Southern Swap Meet 2010.
I've long wanted one and I never imagined finding one ... and at such a good price.
Mr H and I were on our last legs, wandering around in anticipation of leaving when I spotted my little darling.
It had $22 marked on the top ... too rich for me but the stall holder quickly dropped it to $15. I rooted around in my purse and came up with $12, which he accepted.
When I opened it up it was full of sewing goodies: needles and pins and measuring tapes so it knows exactly what it's expected of a sewing 'basket'.
And doesn't it look wonderful now after a clean up and polish with beautiful old fashioned wax polish?
