a very lucky find

so a few weeks back i had a very lucky find at the car boot sale...it was the end of the day and all the stalls were packing away, and this one man was shouting, "everything 50p, so i ambled over for a browse, squeezed past all the other bargain hunters and saw a lovely little leather case, i had a peek inside and the proverbial golden light shone from inside, because it was full of lovely old sewing things, spools, threads,zips,buckles and buttons.so i asked how much for everything, thinking he would want more for the contents, but no, 50p, he said, thanks i said, paid and skipped away happy with my find...very bloody delighted with my find... and it was only when i got it home and had a proper rummage did i see at the bottom of it, some stamps from 1957,and the embossed E=R, which for one moment i thought meant the queen herself once owned this case.but i was then informed by my David, that this was the royal mail logo..so a postman must have owned this, what a dapper case to carry the mail, don't you agree ? and the case I'm keeping for myself, its currently full with old book pages that I'm very slowly working through listing in the shop and now in said shop, I'm selling all the contents..
i cant wait to see what lucky finds ill have the next time i go to the car boot sale...
