Catching her eye ...

and coming home in her basket over the last few days ... 

This little fellow made her smile!
Not so sure about his odd little friend though ... 
Dear little badge ... 'the League of Foot Freedom'
Little moulds and antler handled cutlery ...
Advertising card dominoes for Carter's Little Liver pills ...
for constipation, biliousness, sick headache and ... complexion!
Buttons to sort through ...
... and a shirt buttons box.
Miniature shop/doll's house haberdasherers unit ...
Sweet little print ...
Toy mangle and union flag for the car ...
Lovely old case with perfect papered lining ...
and an all wool retro runner ...
Antler mounted Scottie dog ...
She has had fun shopping!
Still not sure about this strange looking little guy though, 
with his oversized head and feet!

I think the nicest...Loveliest thing,
is the 'sweet little print'. That is so..so..so..Well, you know what l mean...! :).

And the dwarf...All you have to do now, is find the other six! But, he's a jolly fellow! :>).

Oh! l'll have the rug for 10/-. That's 50p. SOLD! Thankyou very much..! HeHe!

Tell the truth and shame the devil...
What a horrid little doll that is..
HeHe! Looks as though it's been in some horror movie...! Roll on November the 5th....

Vix said...

I'm another blogger who wants the haberdashery unit to come in adult size! It';s a beauty. x

I actually understand what you mean about the little guy with this misshapen body, he just looks so out of proportion, a weird little dude indeed, great items all the same though Jane!

freckleface said...

Oh, the mangle and the haberdashery unit! So adorable. I'd like a rummage through that pile of buttons too! xx

Deborah said...

Vintage Sheet Addict said...

A mixture haberdashery cabinet, fab! :) x

grace said...

I really love rummaging through buttons, even more old ones!

Flaming Nora said...

The strange little guy is a little disturbing I'm afraid. Something about his unwavering gaze and receding hairline. However the toy haberdashers shelves are possibly the find of the century.

All good stuff, except that really odd doll that would give me the creeps...(sorry!)
Great buttons and little unit :o)

Emilie's daughter said...

She did a good job! I especially love her buttons and that little shop! And that strange little guy is so strange that it all turns into the opposite! I think he needs a bit of tenderness and he will smile and be happy! Christa

Gosh - you're buying very well in Somerset - it's hard going up North, though I came home with a lovely flag and two genuine aboriginal boomerangs on Sunday (I tried throwing them away...)

I have suitcase envy, wool runner envy (great pattern) and I love your ladybird collection.
Lovely blog post.
