For the second morning in a row I have set my alarm for an indecently early time. Yesterday the reason was to go for an early morning walk with my friend (we are on a fitness kick), today was to win this lovely old haberdashery counter on eBay, which is going to have pride of place in our new shop.
It is made of oak and glass and has 20 drawers with handles at the back. I have always loved these cabinets, they remind me of the haby shops I used to visit with my mum, who was a seamstress. You still find these cabinets in a lot of old shops in the UK. I owned a beauty when we were living in England, it was from an old lingerie shop that had closed down, but I had to leave it behind when we moved to Australia. Bah. But anyway, now I have a new one. Or I will do if it gets here in one piece. Watch this space!
