I have been having withdrawl symptoms, I haven’t been hunting through the treasure trove of charity shops or even been to a carboot sale (although that was mostly as I believed they weren’t on until Easter!).
On Sunday, we braved the bracing wind and icey roads to go on a outing, on the way to our destination we passed the venue of our local carboot and I screeched
“Stooooooooop!!!!!!!” There were only about 10 cars, and only Boo and I braved the cold to investigate! Initially I looked on disappointed as it all seemed to be things being cleared from Christmas, with the odd baby related item thrown in for good measure. Just as we were leaving I noticed a box of old books, and hidden in the box was:
The condition isn’t great, the strap is missing and the paper label from the bottom is torn, but the mechanism works, the pictures can be seen clearly and they are so kitsch! I’ve proudly added it to the growing collection of vintage Fisher Price toys I’ve been collecting! For 50pence it has provided a huge amount of entertainment already!
Happy 1st Birthday to #MagpieMonday! Check out all the other second-hand finds at Me and my Shadow!
