Another shopping morning at the iconic Camberwell market in Melbourne with my vintage obsessed 15 yr old daughter. So much groovy clothing, most of which she is a bit young for and a whole heap of junk (to put it bluntly). I kept thinking, give me someone selling paper or something I can use. There were lots of old sewing pattern packs but I have a few which will last me a while.
All of a sudden, I see a middle aged man selling girly junky toys and stationery items, many with a printed vintage paper doll design. Notebooks, bookmarks, pencil cases etc. I got the distinct impression that he didn't really understand what he was selling ;)
My daughter bought a mouse-pad and the man gave her a bonus bookmark (I think he thought she was cute).
I didn't bother asking the man if they were new (look pretty good condition) If anyone knows anything about these ie. are they just antique-style???, I would love some info.
It wasn't much cheaper than I would find at a scrapbooking store but it looks old...and I liked the font...and I don't have a lower case small alphabet set. I'm happy :)
