Some bits and pieces from the Brotherhood.

We haven't been to our local oppie for a while for various reasons, so my friend Glenda was pleased when I called her today to ask if she wanted to go up there.
We both found a few things as usual!

Do you have any idea what this is? (It cost just $3) I just posted five photos of the inside of it on my other blog, and don't want to use up my bandwidth by repeating them all here, so if you want to know more, click here.

Vest, or jerkin - whatever you want to call it - $4. A much nicer shade of pale green than it looks here.

Another vest, this time in black pure wool, $4. I love to wear vests over skivvies or blouses for a bit of extra warmth, instead of a bulky sweater.

Book 70c. I love books about the origin of sayings and cliches.

Just had a look of the little red riding hood book on your other blog, I think someone made that lovingly for a niece or nephew perhaps? I have an aunt that makes one for every niece/nephew when they are born. I can't believe someone gave theirs away! At least it has found a new loving home.

Oh my Mum and I would love that book. We love the etymology of words and phrases. Good find!
