And what was in this old battered box that got me secretly squealing with excitement and the rather odd look from the assistant?
A ginormous stamp set to play shops with!
It was used to price up products by hand in the good old days.
Just look at those titles - 'Finest Quality,' 'Per lb' and 'Sure to Please.'
I'm not really using it to play shops, I have been stamping some 'everyday' labels to stick on my magnetic reminder board so I
don't have to speak to my kids I can remind my family of daily events.
I'm so pleased with this purchase and want to label everything in sight! Not bad for a purchase price of just £8.50....

It was my husband's birthday today and I made him this (Hidden) Toblerone container for one of his pressies:
(If I made another one I'd use card rather than paper). I think they could also be used as table setting cards for an informal occasion. The bonus is that they are very simple to make with just three simple folds of one piece of paper/card. I do like this kind of simple craft!
Thanks for stopping by today,
