Popped into my little spot in the Hopkinson Vintage, Antique & Arts centre today to leave a supply of childrens book clocks. I rather overloaded the shelving with them but I know I can’t get in to restock for a little while so it now looks rather crammed full like this…
I’ve also done a little shopping towards converting a storage room into a workshop. Most sensible folk would head to ikea for cupboards for storage. Me I spotted a 1930s bedroom set of 2 wardrobes and a dressing table in the local charity shop and decided that was for me. Can’t wait to get set up in there.
Sorry for the long delay in posts. I am finding that a small business running alongside a regular day job leaves very little time. Making the stock and taking it out to venues has taken all those extra hours of late. I had hoped to share more of the vintage diaries and papers here but my bright idea to store them away safely and a lack of time to get them out and photograph things means that’s a coming soon style project right now.
There has been much clock and card making of late. Sometimes I read the books before converting them. Children’s books aren’t always a happy tale…….
….after all the animals buy on credit but never pay their bills Ginger & Pickles can’t keep the shop open and go out of business. I hope my next choice for clock conversion is more uplifting.
