lost property finds

I had some fun finds this weekend. I can never resist an interesting book, particularly those full of helpful advice. The AA Members Handbook from 1963 will keep your car running, whilst Girls Growing Up will keep your daughters on the straight and narrow! Meanwhile, Ward Lock's Wedding Etiquette will make sure you don't make a faux pas at social gatherings - and it has a fantastic pink and white strip cover.

I also came across this sweet little toy ironing board, made by Triang, and a lovely Woods Ware teapot.

The Cadbury's chocolate tins are also great fun. The tin on the left is in the shape of a stack of books, all Charles Dickens titles. And I've not come across the Roses tin before - the design hasn't changed a huge amount over the years, but the colourful flowers are really pretty.

Most of these will be on my stall at the Stamford Jubilee Vintage Fair tomorrow!
