I could spend hours looking at old items and imagining them displayed with the dessert tables, picnic settings etc. Here are a couple of bits ive managed to pick up lately – there is a fabulous little shop tucked away in Durham called Ding Dong Vintage. I adore old cameras and couldnt resist these two…..im sure both would work too given a little care and attention and ive even found a website dedicated to regenerating these kind of items. They sell so much stuff it is literally spilling out onto the path infront of the store – you could get lost in here for years and still come out not having seen everything (and yes its a small shop!) A few other bits have been picked up via boot sales/charity shops/ebay etc – ive become something of a prop hoarder!! How cute is this old linen parasol and picnic basket – i have visions of Evie in a cute summer dress holding this while i take pictures (shes already nabbed my Jackie O style pink sunglasses which was for something completely different!) I love this old radio and how it has the buttons for long and medium wave. When i opened the back theres no fancy circut boards or chips – theres a whopping great hole where a whopping great battery would go! lolThis Lilliput typewriter brings back so many memories – i didnt have one like this but i can remember sitting for hours rewriting books i had borrowed from the library so that i could get my typing speed up! I was about 8! lol I had to explain to the boys how to push the roll back along after each line and how you would use a correction tape – they were completely baffled! So much to do and my lovely little sis has just booked a day off work so that we can visit the Newark Antique and Collectors fair this month! So excited!!
