This week it’s all about the one that got away. I was browsing the charity shops in Muswell Hill when I spotted a lovely set of specimen drawers in the Oxfam shop. It was a small wooden unit with three full length drawers and four drawers of different sizes. It was beautiful and I started to think of all the things I could put in it and how I would clean it up.
As I was hungry I decided to have lunch before buying the drawers which were priced very reasonably but looked bulky and heavy. I had a lovely lunch and went back to the shop and did a double take as it was no longer in the window. Yep, someone else had bought them. Completely my own fault for assuming no-one else saw the potential in them.
I made do with a couple of vintage Coronation magazines called Everybody’s, more for the vintage advertisements than anything else.
