Following a recent house clearance here is a glimpse of my latest finds....
Beautiful slubby homespun sheets, a large bolt of unused metis linen, a baby cot and pillow case set, old papers, old unused nylon stockings still in their original packets, an Edwardian lawn cotton handkerchief for a "mariage", a petite religious statue and a gorgeous drape/curtain. Hopefully this little shopping excursion will keep me going until the brocantes start up again next month. All of the above can be found in my online shop: http://www.ebay.com/sch/frenchfanciesinfrance/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686
