As I had taken so long to decide which items to buy, the weather had changed dramatically outside and I can only describe it as flash flooding! As I was wearing clothing of the definitely not waterproof variety this proved a bit of a problem. The metro station was a good five minute walk away. I hopped between bus-stops sheltering for a few moments until the rain subsided. I decided to get off the metro at the weekly flea market (it is under cover) as the rain was torrential by this time. And so the serendipity moment II happened as I had no intention of visiting. I have a route (sad I know) I always follow around the market stalls but this time I deviated and came upon a stall selling vintage items. There was lace, trims, buttons, fabrics, clothing, threads, bobbins, patterns, books and lots of other things too numerous to mention.
I bought a bag of trims mostly hand-crocheted and a couple of pieces of lace and a gorgeous very long piece of what I think is broderie anglaise.....
little crochet bundles
an exquisite length of lace
a broderie anglaise trim
I really love it when I find a bag of goodies, especially when you get a couple of gems in there.
There was a lovely box of threads I could not resist, it was the lettering and colour of the box that initially attracted me.....
nestling amongs my Woolfest props
My last purchase was a tiny pixie that I simply could not resist, a purchase of the frivolous kind....
A little linen person sat himself in the props box think I will have to keep my eye on him!
Hope you all have a good weekend despite the atrocious weather forecast.
