beautiful soft pink plastic with a ballerina centre box on little feet..full of sewing goodies...

lots of linen.... & lots lots more...(not photographed...plus LOTS of stuff i purchased during the past week....SO I have a very BUSY week coming up listing LOTS of goodies on ebay)...

AND THE MOST GORGEOUS 1960's book..."IWant to be an Air Hostess"....

LOVE the coloured drawings...havent stopped looking at them!! SOOO RETRO!!!

& how "incorrect" these days is the text about staying "neat & slim"!!! (to become a hostess!!??)....

My randmother has the rose cake tins....But one is so deep it is more a flour tin or the like.
You did well.....How great is it that your Hubby will sit patiently and wait for you.
My Hubby ain't patient bout anything!!!!!

Hey there Miss Andrea!
You are just too lucky to have such a patient husband! I usually go to the markets & garage sales with my mum as it's usually the last thing that my hubby would want to do!
Great finds by the way, I am hoping to get to some markts next weekend for some treasure hunting.

Hi andrea, fantastic finds. Particularly love the air hostess book. My mum was an air hostess with TAA and I still have her uniform. She looked just like the pictures, neat and slim!
