Finally with the books - another copy of my favourite book - The Little Prince. I managed to pick up a French copy last visit for Ben (I tend to give anyone who means something to me a copy of this) - this copy is beautiful. It's in a slip cover case and the book itself has a plastic cover. I don't think it's even been read:
Some oil pastels for my art diary:
50p!Two scrapbooks full of theatre, television and cinema ephemera from the 1980s:
(all of these were £1 each)
Finally I found this tin box:
Ooooh Monopoly money and ...
Chance and Community Chest cards and ...
Property cards and ...
Rules along with wooden houses and hotels and finally:
Looky at these old Monopoly pieces! I never knew they even had ones like this. I've researched them and it seems that they come from the 1950s and apparently it's the same set that the 'great' train robbers were playing with when they were caught. Not this actual set of course but a similar one. If I'd had the box and the board I've seen one sell for £59! Unfortunately I don't but for 50p I think this was a billy bargain don't you?
