The village has a community initiative fund which takes over an old church on Saturdays and sells second hand furniture to raise money. So, this being Saturday, I put a tenner in my pocket and wandered in to see if there was a chair that would work.
There isn't, this week - I'll try again next week - but what there is is an absolutely beautiful old writing bureau. It's gorgeous. It's a little scratched on the surface and one of the supports needs replaced. (Neither of which is a problem for me - I'm good at stuff like that). It's marked at fifteen pounds which is - in my opinion - an absolute bargain for such a beautiful piece of furniture. It's lucky I only had a tenner otherwise I'd have bought it.
And now I'm sitting here thinking... where would I have put it? The writing surface is not big enough for my desktop computer so it would be used only as a writing desk. I don't have the room - and right now, I really don't have the money.
Doesn't mean I'm not hoping it's still going to be there in a couple of weeks when I'll know if I have more money or not.
Oooh! Also? Dollhouse is renewed? Awesome!
