It is so hot today that it was good to get out early before it got too warm. At the first carboot stall I had some bumper finds, first this folding mini table 50p, I loved the pattern on the top
It needed a bit of TLC- a good clean and just a little DIY but now and ready to put to good use
Then this great sewing vintage 1970s book
I would've loved this as a girl. It even shows you how to make your own clothes, diagrams on how to thread your sewing machine based on an old hand turned Singer. I was limited to the Ladybird book of sewing and making bookmarks and ball from felt- all very groovy but this would've been fantastic!
My favourite pic is this illustration
Also picked up this cute little Newey 'book' of vintage 'Sewing Aids', just loved the packaging
and finally some hooks, I have a few sets of these in the kitchen, useful and so pretty
