I have ogled and fondled many a card index box in my time, but never bought one as they all proved too expensive. So naturally, when one turned up in the local charity shop it caught my eye.
It was still waiting to be priced, so I had to come back later. And it had gone. A momentary pang ensued – until the nice lady told me to have a look in the window.
And there it was.
At a charity shop price that was just too good to miss. So now, it is mine, all mine!
It may be the subject of a small make-over, as it’s rather worn leathercloth is peeling off at the back and is looking a tad dowdy.
But I think a selection of my sewing and crafting bits and bobs will soon be very happily in residence within my new acquisition.
