Charity Shop Finds

Had a bumper week last week, found these four books in local charity shops on the Broadway.  The first three are all quilting related; the Grandmothers quilt book includes muslin templates.  The Pippi Longstocking, is a boxed Oxford edition with wonderful illustrations by Lauren Child (author and illustrator of Charlie and Lola).   These four books cost £15.  A long way from the £70 they would have cost new, and all are in really good condition.

The charity shops are excellent especially Oxfam - you can ask them in there to look out for things as well ( Debbie is a great manager )
Thought of you today when up on the Ridgeway - the Frost made the place look amazing and I am hoping you have got your camera out and taken some photos. Truly spectacular and never seen it like that before.

Yes I really do like Oxfam, and the staff are really helpful and chat to customers. Good atmosphere.

Unfortunately have been housebound with flu, so haven't been out and about. I can imagine how beautiful it must have been, so soon as, I'll be out there.
