One thing I have been after and have finally found is a vintage woollen picnic rug for Archie the Morris Minor. The label is printed with 'British Made' but with no maker's name, though I reckon that its probably late 50s or early 60s. A few days later I also found these 1960s Shell road maps too, so snaffled them up for 20p each. Although these maps wouldn't be much use now, I brought them to put into Archie's glove-box for future vintage-styling purposes!
Actually, these finds will be useful when we drive Archie to the Morris Minor Owners Club rally celebrating the 100 Years of Morris later this year, as not only will we kitting him out vintage style (as well as me - natch!), but will also be picnicking vintage style too!

...and printers' tray which once I've filled the spaces with paper, will be attached to Monkeychild's wall for her to fill with her bits and pieces. Apart from the tray being clean (less work for me to do!) it was the attractive cast metal handle that also appealed to me.
