This little plastic wicker children's wagon satisfies my fetish for yellow and black. Whilst cleaning it I noticed that the wheels were made by Wingfield Plastics, Adelaide...and there the mystery was solved. No wonder I love yellow and black plastic...it was made close to where I grew up. Subconsciously I must have seen yellow and black everywhere growing up and these memories surface when I see 'stuff' and a little voice screams, "Nick you must have it...you MUST." Ofcourse I don't need a childs wicker carriage, but it felt good buying it.
While at the fair, it went missing and I thought "Ahh, goodbye groovy little carriage." It is not uncommon to have things swiped.
Half an hour later a little kid wanders by the stall wheeling the carriage. It is piled high with goods. I approached the mother who said with languid surprise, "Oh is this yours?" On the affirmative she looked down and realised that her kid had been having a very good time 'collecting' everything at his eye level. I told her the price and she looked at me as if I was from Mars. I felt like banging her over the head with carriage.
So the carriage returned home, to wait for another fair.
Pop over to Sophies and Apron Thrift Girl for some more finds.
