... and little box
Front of the box reads -
"A Wish ...
I do not wish thee grandeur,
Nor yet a store of wealth,
I wish thee greater treasure,
Contentment, peace and health".
And inside ...
Diddy little anvils (downsizing grandpa's overflowing shed!)
... an early 50s toy Hoover washing machine
The wringer folds away, just like the real thing used to,
so that you could push it back under the worktop.
The grooved metal top prevented splashes
and fixed to the side of the machine afterwards
to hold the wet washing after wringing.
All of the above will be at upcoming vintage fairs.
And finally, a little present VJ bought for herself ...
What's inside the little case ... ?
a dinky little sewing machine, in working order.
North Cadbury Vintage Textile and Rag Market,
this Saturday, 9am-3pm.
