Yesterday, whilst perusing one of the local charity shops with Mum, I struck what I thought was vintage gold.
Three really 'groovy' 1970s M&S cotton bedcovers - one double and two single, each in a different colourway. There was no price on them but when I asked I was told they were £2.49 each. That seemed a very fair price to me and I bought all three. My plan was to resell them on ebay - hopefully for a nice profit.
As I was hanging them out I realised each and every one of them has been used as a dust sheet whilst someone had been painting with white emulsion. They are all peppered with tenny tiny spots of white paint. B*gger, b*gger, b*gger!! Not quite sure what I'll do with them now. Apart from the teeny paint spots they are in lovely nick and the print is amazing - perhaps I'll try selling them at 'The Travelling Flea' as picnic blankets or maybe I'll try and get rid of the paint spots somehow - anyone got any good tips for that? B*gger, again!!
