One of my favourite things is browsing car boot sales. Sometimes I come away with nothing, usually I come away with something good and sometimes I come away with a gem. This was one of those gem moments.
I saw it on the floor, in a tangle of junk. I lunged. I grabbed. I tried to look nonchalant while I asked how much this “thing” was. Fingers crossed, hoping desperately that they didn’t know how much a wool winder costs on ebay… They didn’t know. I know. I have tried to buy one for under £10 many times and have failed. But they didn’t know. And they thought 20 pence was a reasonable price for some old bit of junk from grandma’s house. Whoooop! I scuttled away feeling very pleased.
