Your line for this week is:
Jaime spent the whole day browsing the antique store and left with just one thing.
It had been quite a history lesson walking between the items available for sale, some of the prices quite staggering for what Jaime thought was no more than junk.
The lamp with the skirted mustachioed men shade was a novelty, as was another with a cartoon theme yet the price tags attached were no laughing matter unless it was for The Bank of The Hopeful and Ridiculous.
There were plates and ornaments commemorating special events and occasions, though royal wedding merchandise should now have been relabelled royal divorces.
The coins were familiar from his grandfather’s penny jar which was the only money ever used playing cards so that no-one actually lost anything and it all went back in the jar afterwards.
They were pictures and toys, tools and clothing, some fantastic furniture and gadgetry, but none of that interested Jaime.
It was not a wasted day though as he left with the one thing he had come in for…………
the telephone number of the lovely assistant who had captured his heart weeks ago when she and her father opened up their Collect Tables antique shop.
