and this little girl.
I also went to my reading group last week. The next book we are to read seems to be reprinting and unavailable from Amazon etc. so I decided to see if my local library had it. We have lived here for 11 months and I haven't joined the library as I do like my books to be brand new when I read them. Well they didn't have the book or a couple of others I looked for, nor did they seem to have any classics on the shelves. When I enquired where I would find anything by Dickens or Hardy I was told that they keep all the classics in their office as there doesn't seem to be the demand for them (I refrained from saying of course there can't be any demand for them if they aren't on the shelves). I decided not to join the library after all!
Last Friday Jane (the other half of Oh So Vintage) and I travelled up to Shepton Mallett to the antiques fair and managed to buy quite a lot. We were particularly looking for linens as they sell well on the website and we find it difficult sourcing them. It was a very tiring day (particularly as we took several detours on the way - too much chatting and not enough sign reading, plus a sat nav that has a dicky connection and keeps going off). I took my camera but was too busy looking for bargains to take any photos.
