SHOW & TELL
More participants are here at Kelly's
Near Waterloo is a big store which sells all kind of things. People put their antiques, furnitures or other stuff here for sale. When it isn't sold after 2 weeks the price goes down, if after 3 months it's still not sold (but I don't think that happens) they have to take it back. Of course the store owner gets a commission on the sales.
It's really a Ali Baba cavern and you can spend hours in there. I wasn't looking for something special, I just went there to take some pictures.
But then I saw this plate and of course I couldn't resist to buy it !
It is handpainted and a limited edition. It came from the UK and landed up in a junk store in Belgium. I payed 15 € (19 $) and am happy with it !
And then I found a little side table which I thought would be very useful for me to just put it besides the sofa so that I can put a glass or a plate on it.
The top is out of black glass, and the table itself of brass. It fits to all kind of furniture. I got it for 10 € !
That's always the same when you are in a shop with no intention to buy, you always come out with something !
