One of my favourite pastimes is having a good old rummage at antique fairs, markets, charity stalls, house clearance shops and carboot and garage sales for old glass, china, buttons and curios...in fact anything that takes my fancy! I particularly recommend the Capitol Carboot sale in Pimlico, held each Sunday and the International antiques and collectors fairs held across the country throughout the year. A small selection of some of my finds....

handled knives, an antique vase and a Victorian glass castor cup - all for £4!
