Sometimes you're in luck..... I was on my way to the shops when I saw this "old" coal-scattle complete with poker, shovel and a coaltong standing on the street ready to be picked up by the garbage man !!
Luckily I know the people who put the coal-scattle out on the street, so I went to the door... rang their door bell and ask them if they were really trowing the coal-scattle away.
(just making sure, haha)
And they were... so now it's mine ! = )
As you know love "old" stuff (brocante) so I'm really happy, like I said sometimes you're in luck ; )
