At the Market

It was such a murky, miserable morning that I nearly didn’t go to the market. Somehow, I felt lucky so I did make the effort and the car boot sellers were out in force, many with boxes of old books: just what I like.



This lot cost me £7.00 and the E M Delafield books are a particularly good find. I also bought this sweet little Coronation tin for 50p.



Not bad!
