I really wish that old things like boomboxes, telegrams, typewriters, box brownies, antique telephones and record players never went so ‘extinct’. I think it’s a little bit sad to throw these historical items out – it’s like throwing out a bit of history and if every one was to throw away their boomboxes.. then there would be none left (well done Sherlock)! So that’s why i like collecting these old things. My parents think i’m crazy, buying second hand bits and pieces which they had only just chucked out a couple of decades ago because they were quote: “useless”. So far, i’ve bought myself a fabulous, huge and completely unportable red boom box. But every time i visit a market with old home wares and bric a brac, i am always so tempted to buy that glass fruit bowl, completely broken but oh so beautiful camera or the countless sets of delicate teacup sets!
Today is my Etsy store’s one year anniversary :) And what better way to celebrate with.. 100 Etsy sales!
