I remember one in Hampton as well, that always drew me like a moth to a flame whenever we travelled through. That was like a curiosity shop, full of things people had discarded for others to find a home for, as well as spaces available for the local crafters and artisans to show off their wares, too. I haven't been to Hampton since before my children were born. I doubt, in today's climate of bargain buys and online shopping, that it is still even there. I hope it is, though.
Why am I telling you all this? Well, this , and all the other little shops and stalls I've spent hours browsing round, was the inspiration for my page, which is why, when you visit my page (and hopefully one day I'll have a website, too) you'll see a higgeldy, piggeldy collection of things I've made, up-cycled or just found to pass on to a new home. I hope you like browsing, just like me! You never know when you'll come across that one perfect thing you were looking for, and maybe didn't even know it.
This little pocket watch was one of those things I found accidentally on purpose.
I was looking for something else, and it caught my eye.
And I love it, and I'm not sure I can be parted from it! I keep looking at it. It reminds me of almost publicly embarrassing myself at my daughters' last dance show, when Biggest played Alice in a beautifully choreographed little ballet performance, and I was so proud.
(But I can't keep everything or else my husband will divorce me and I'll be on telly as Britain's Biggest Hoarder)
So on my page it goes, along with things I've made and things I've up-cycled, and other things I've collected along the way. Come and say hello!
