mt eden antiques fair.

I went along to the Mt Eden Antiques Fair last Sunday, the sort of thing that's right up my alley! I am more than happy to pay $3 to fossick through treasures of all kinds - antique toys, linen, books, china, ornaments and jewellery to name a few.

I was pretty chuffed to pick up this old manual Brother typewriter for $20. I saw a very similar one in the window display of Iko Iko on K'Rd which I so lovingly longed for. It's in top condition and only needed a ribbon change. This takes my total collection of typewriters to 3 (I have an electronic Brother and old Consul), although one may get the boot very soon as storage at our house is at a minimum.
Great for sending in requests to the North Pole
Previous owners assignment on dinosaurs found tucked in the case pocket. Ha!

And these pretty cats, the set $2!
