I gave up on the patchwork quilt with added wolves and moose at under £20. A girl can have too many patchwork quilts. There is a certain somebody not a beagle’s gowl from here should tell me when she wants a vintage quilt so that I’d not be pushing the price up on her.
So now I’m away down to Portglenone now to see if any grannies have been clearing out their kitsch curtains so that I can make my fortune on them. I’d take Pearlie’s swan pictures down as a donation if only she wasn’t prowling about the yard and might see me at it.
“Where are ye going way those pictures?”
“Ah. Only to the charity shop.”
“Ye are not! I love them pictures and Margaret bought me that one way the gold frame. She knew I liked swan pictures but didnae know I already had thon one kept in the good room that nobody iver used so nobody iver seen it to know that I had it.”
“So do you want them back then?”
“Sure where would I pit those in this wee huckster of a place? Can ye not hing them? Ye have plenty of room in there.”
“Um. I don’t really like them.”
“Huh! There’s not a thing wrong way them pictures. Them’s lovely pictures.”
“I suppose I could keep them for another few years then by that time they’ll be all the rage on Ebay and I’ll get a couple of hundred for them.”
“Ebay? What oul nonsense are ye talking now?”
