A trip down the road to the woodyard, then into the charity shop on the way back got me 9m of wood and these! A new Geoff Love LP, three 78’s, two knitting books with “interesting” fashion, and a Beatrix Potter book. All for £3.40.

Books

The Tale Of Benjamin Bunny ~ Beatrix Potter (20p)

I have a little collection of these books, but can never remember what I have already (I had this in paperback when I checked). This one is hardback with dust-cover, printed 1987/89 and in good condition.


Good Knitting With P&B (10p)

A good selection of cheesy poses in various knits. You can see the whole thing on Retro Musings here.


Machine Knitting Chic (10p)

This magazine is full of massive shoulder pads and over ornamented designs. I therefore could not resist its pull. Plus, 10p!
