Flea Market Finds

I'm playing along (showing off) again this week thanks to Sophie.
I found these in Ascot Vale Vinnies, for $8! Gorgeous, comfortable and mine! (I wore them out last night, and some candle wax spilled on them, I hope they are fixable! Can anyone tell me how to remove it).



At the same shop, I found this! I had one exactly the same when I was a youngster, and reminisced- I used to use the smallest nib and use it to write with instead of a pen. And at $4, I took it home!

Go and visit Sophie for some more finds, and play along!

I still have that Calligraphy set in one of my drawers with all of the other stationery stuff!

The shoes look great and what a wonderful price, hope you can get the wax off them.

I am not even going to ask how the wax got there :)

I used to own one too, and I used to love that aswell as the lettering book.

I had that exact same calligraphy set too. I can't believe that the box still has ink!
I think I still have the Lettering Book somewhere.

Oh, I had the sam Calligraphy set too! We had to use them at school instead of normal pens. It was hard being a left hander!

Lovely shoes. I'm not sure about the wax

I know you can get wax off clothing with ice, but I'm not sure about shoes. Maybe look in the "Spotless" book?
