BARGAINS and TREASURES

I did'nt get to tell you what I got from Todmorden Market yesterday.  First up is this great black & white photo which is in an old frame.  Its been added to my growing gallery.
I love old photographs like this of groups of people you know nothing about and you wonder who they are, what they are doing, where they are.  I think its fascinating.
This one cost me all of £2, the frame and mount are worth that.
This one is of a wedding party, but who are they ? are they working or middle class ?
The little basket will be a good prop for my stall and I love this leather cased clothes brush to fit in a bag or pocket.  The retro material is a pump bag.  Bargains £3.50 the lot.
Don't you think the teapot I got for £2  works well with my mixed lot of crockery and what about these lovely cups and saucers I picked up 4 sets and I they go great with the Doodly Bird coasters.
 Last up is this little jar with the word "perejil", in botany it means "parsley".  
Look at the birds they are far distant cousins of the Doodlies.


Another great lot of finds at Todmorden Secondhand Market

IF YOU LOOK ON THE SIDE BAR AND UNDER WORD SEARCH & PRESS ON TODMORDEN YOU WILL SEE MY OTHER TRIPS THERE.

  1. Hi Lynn, those photos are amazing, hard times back then, no-one seemed to smile but the wedding party are lovely in all their finery, I would say middle class. Love your crockery finds, what bargains! Love the doodly birds too. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  3. What a lot of nice goodies Lynn. I too like old pictures and wonder about the folk in them and their lives etc.
    What are you going to do with all your tea cups sets? :0) xx

  4. Love the cups and saucers - just my thing. The perejil pot is brilliant too. I did something on dating photos and identifying class on an Open University course once - I'll see if I can dig some stuff out. xx

  5. Hi Lynn,

    I have a bunch of old photos of my ancestors. I need to scan them in and maybe use them in some of my art. What do you do with the photos that you collect?

    I love those cups that are set sideways in the same photo as the teapot. My place is so very small that I'm trying not to add anything to it -- oh but sometimes that's just so hard!

    Hugs,
    Kay
