Vintage finds

The great thing about visiting France in the summer is that you can be sure there will be lots of antique / car boot sales at the weekend.  This August I visited a couple of really nice places on Sundays near home. Most of the stalls sell tat, really, but occasionally there are treasures to be re-discovered. Someone in the family is a complete car-boot nut and goes religiously. That's how I end up with anything sewing-related whenever I go back. Still, it means I never EVER run out of cotton or buttons (or needles, or measuring tapes)!

The jars are also vintage. One of them now contains sugar and a pod of vanilla straight from Madagascar...yum!

More vintage finds in my next posts
