Three engineers out so far and each one has said it's someone else's problem. Sound familiar?
I think my favourite ever buy at a french flea market/Vide Grenier has got to be this small, vintage toy kitchen by Comme Maman. Maybe you remember it?
So imagine my utter joy when I spied another one! Couldn’t believe it! Though had to hold my breath as I watched a woman right by it hand over some money…..huge wave of relief when she picked up an old doll’s wardrobe.
The kitchen is rather tatty and rusty with bits missing, like the other one - I think it would have had a little water container so you could fill the sink, and there'd have been lots of tiny utensils. Need to do some investigating. Another thing to add to the flipping list...
I happily handed over 3 euros, and the kitchen was mine. My husband wasn’t with us at the time….and not being the biggest fan of the first one, his face was such a picture when he saw it. Sort of bewildered resignation.
A lovely vintage four-in-one game in great condition.
If there is a plus side to all this internet strife it’s that I've really pushed on with my crafting. The toy pile is growing and it all looks bright and cheery, so I’m feeling pretty happy about that. I’ll hopefully be able to show you some Jumble Betty stuff next week. Maybe even from the comfort of home, wouldn't that be great?
And exceedingly unlikely.
