Retro picnic

I'm a sucker for wicker baskets, and always snap one up if I see one in a charity shop - I've struggled home on the train from Weybridge clutching one with a broken handle, from Putney with a violin, stand and associated paraphernalia  and from Christchurch with lots of other luggage; nothing stops me! Today I only had some food shopping so that was easy!

Finding the hamper was fortunate - but what a treat when I looked inside! A fabulous 70s Timothy Whites brown and white picnic set for four, with storage boxes, flask and salt + pepper pots. Some matching napkins and a sunny day and we're ready to go! I already have the tea-towel and apron from a previous trip!

And how much did this splendid haul cost me? Just five pounds! Bargain!


  1. What a great retro set! Glad everything was still there.
