I love a good bargain, do you? Recently, I've gotten some good ones. Like this little table. Ever since I brought it home, when anyone comes to visit, I get them to guess how much it cost. So far my sister's boyfriend has been the closest. He guessed three euro, but it was actually only two! Isn't that amazing?! I got it at a charity fair thing a while ago. The guy who was selling it was lovely and when I asked how much it was, he said I was the first person all day to show any interest in it. (Don't know what that says about the table, or me!) So it was mine for two yoyos! I think I was destined to own it!
I carried it around then for a couple of hours at the fair, while I waited for my Mam who was trawling for treasure - fairs like that are her idea of heaven! In that time lots of nice strangers admired my three-legged table and gave me random bits of advice. One woman, to whom I casually mentioned that I had plans to paint it, was completely horrified and managed to talk me out of it. Seemingly her son-in law paints things that colour in America so it has a vintage look! She told me to just clean it, so that's what I did. I think I like the colour now.
