A Car Boot Dream Come True.

Imagine my surprise this Sunday when I was strolling around our local car boot sale, which in my ignorance I have always thought unpromising and a poor relation to the neighbouring one in Brighton, when my eyes fell upon this!

It was/is a complete set of the wonderful cards designed by Charles Eames. In my mind I punched the air as I handed over my coins. All this luck on top of paying £1 for a couple of brilliant badminton rackets! I ran home clutching my treasure, gleefully bumping into a friend who would know the true worth of my find, and hastily built a couple of towers. Voila!

I love them and I love the Lewes car boot sale. Eames Office is a good site about Charles and Ray Eames and I found this lovely video of one of their inventions on YouTube
