Compacts and Cakes

Whilst we away last week a friend and I made a side trip to Leyburn. We went on the public bus which was an amazingly lovely journey. We travelled through the Dales down the narrowest of lanes. Fortunately the driver was very good at his job! In Leyburn we found one of the best charity shops that I have visited- and believe me I’ve been in a lot!
This particular Hospice Charity Shop was set out as a home with individual rooms full of good quality,fair priced items. In the “lounge” was the appropriate furniture with ornaments, soft furnishings etc. there was a “nursery” filled with childrens items, a library,and a kitchen full of kitchin items. The shop wasn’t smelly and was very welcoming.
I found a rather nice compact to add to my collection. I only now buy Stratton compacts and have purchased them all at a fair price so could sell at a profit if I got fed up of them! The afor mentioned friend gave me a top tip. She advised using baby wipes to clean delicate items. Apparently they also clean spots on furniture as well. This is because they are gentle for a baby’s bottom so won’t damage the item.
