Browsing through some housey magazines I noticed a few of them had the old sweet shop type scales in the kitchen's so for the past two weeks I've been on the look out for some, and I've only come up trumps!!
Have a gander at these little beauties,
they're made by Avery and have a lovely green button and trim and a big scoop for weighing out sweeties.
I'd browsed e bay for some but they were either too expensive or the seller wouldn't ship, then visiting a village not far from me we were passing the Fox Almshouses, (how lovely does that sound)
when I spied a little old shoppe across the road that might have some lurking about, but just my luck it was closed.
So I gave Mr Fox a rat-a-ta-tat hoping there would be someone out the back, and there was!!
It turns out it was all one shop and there sitting in a corner were just the scales I was looking for so I paid my pennies and brought them home.
Mr Lucey gave them a good clean and inside was stamped with the date = 17 FEB 1957.
So if it's a quarter of jelly babies
a sugar mouse or two
or even a blue bag of sugar you'll know where to come!!
