Some very useful vintage items came my way this week.....mainly thanks to Internet land!
I received an email from the thoughtful Anna telling me about a big pile of this old linoleum out the front of a demolished house near me. So I swung by and picked up a big piece. It could be dated with this newspaper laid underneath.1961
I was lucky enough to get in quick to purchase this lovely shoulder bag by CurlyPops. Great 70's tablecloth panels, and finished with neat orange corduroy. I also won this excellent mint 1978 tea towel from "Hanging with my Nomies".
And on an annoying goosechase to the dishwasher spare parts supplier I stopped off at an oppy en route and picked up some vintage aprons. Very homemade, in a yr 9 textiles kinda way, but may come in useful for the giveaway I have planned to round off Blogtoberfest...stay tuned.
