One mans trash, another mans treasure


One mans trash, another mans treasure

The saying goes that one mans trash is another mans treasure, it may take a tiny bit of vision and a little bit of time but sometimes the best things are not the ones brought to us in perfect good-as-new-condition they take a bit of work and attention to be made into something beautiful and worth keeping. Often in the end the things that made them un-wanted in the first place are the things that make they perfect in the end.
I have always loved fiddling through old and forgotten things, wether it is my Grannie's old button collection or a brimming full antiques shop I love the excitement of finding something that has been loved before.
The other day was the first time I went to have a look around Kempton Antiques fair a gathering place for a huge array of old previously loved pieces awaiting new homes.  It is a wonderful place to wonder and take in what ever there is to see, half the beauty is you never know what you will see; the un-expected is to be expected.
Here are a few things I found that happened to catch my eye...


 Assorted vintage medicine bottles


genuine beautiful printing blocks
