This weekend we went to the local village fete and as usual there were several stalls of other people’s junk for sale. As I’ve mentioned before, the best place to find vintage treasures on the cheap is not in vintage shops, but at charity shops, fun fairs, church rummage sales and garage sales. If you can spot a vintage treasure in what the seller considers junk, you’ve got yourself a bargain!
I found a big basket of vintage knitting and crochet patterns for 20p each.
I’m always torn between buying vintage patterns that I might actually make, and then buying some just for the pictures on the front!
