I popped into our local charity shop a few weeks ago and while
I was there I spied a small table, but didn't take much notice of it. As it was standing outside the shop, with a load of other stuff all around it. I could see that it was a small size with two drop leafs. The following day, I was talking to my mate Tash, (otherwise known as the Boot Sale Queen) on the phone, and was telling her
that there was a load of new stuff, in this Charity Shop. She loves a bargain. Tash said she
was going to call in there, when she picked the kids up from School. I
decided that I'd go back down as well and
have a good look at this table. As I'd been thinking that, it would make a great addition to my craft space. I think its a 1950 Utility table. But has a Formica top, so easy to wipe down. By the time I got there, Tash was
already in the shop, and I could see her through the window. She was
mouthing to me "Broken Flaps" and smiling. I looked at the table, and saw the
sticker on the table saying "Broken Flaps". I look back at Tash through the window, and she again mouths broken flaps. Well me being me, I saw the
funny side, by the time I walked into the shop so had Tash, and we
just looked at each other and burst into Hysterical Laughter. We did get some odd looks.
Needless, to say, I still brought
the table and I've fixed my broken flaps. I just took a hammer to the wood underneath...
