I've been a bit lax in posting here lately, because although I always bring something home after I've done my stint for the day, it isn't always terribly exciting to anyone else. Not that today's goodies are exciting to others either but I was VERY excited to find two vintage items of hand embroidery waiting for me. Especially as this wasn't my usual day on duty; I was called in to fill in for someone.
Beautiful supper cloth with hand crocheted edging - $12.
Interesting table runner or scarf, in Japanese or Chinese embroidery on silk. This photo does not do it justice. $5
Obviously an unwanted gift of soap, $1. I've put it in one of my dressing table drawers, it smells so fresh.
Unusual brooch $2.50, which I doubt if I would wear. I would prefer to pin it to a patchwork piece to embellish.
Ceramic magnet - free. The other volunteer on duty threw it in the rubbish because the magnet bit on the back had come off. I rescued it immediately - I've got those magnets in my craft stash!
I can never resist a biscuits cookbook. 50c.
