What is behind the door? Vintage treasure hunt, part 2.

Vintage knitting supplies are getting rarer. How do I keep finding them?!

I mean before someone throws it away. You know – people do that!!


I have decided to say yes in life, so this time I did something I have never done before!

Drive 40 minutes to visit a man I meet at a flea market. Why?

Because we had a nice talk.

He was selling – well, a only few things, but I got a book about crochet and a cookbook from 1927.

And honey.

So I asked about his honey – just like me, a friend of his has bees in his garden.

And I asked if he had any textile.

No, but he had some at home. His mothers old weaving and knitting supplies.

One thing let to another – actually I drove, unannounced. He wasn’t home, so I went back another day!


What do you think? Did I find a treasure? Or did I drive home laughing of my silliness, for driving so far without any clue on what to find?!

To be continued…….
