Helston is one of my favourite charity shopping places in Cornwall.
There is also the fantastic Helston Folk Museum, full of treasures and curios.
I spent an age looking at this, look how beautifully stitched the collar and the cross is.
And this just made me swoon...
I am always fascinated about history that happened to everyday folk, the little things, ephemera and fragments.
These things make me stop in my tracks.
The shop and kitchen displays were my favourites...
This was a tough competition....just how long WAS the Worlds longest banana split!?
I remember Izal loo roll at my infant school....Ugh!
Any museum that has a kitten tray has to be a winner!
I loved this poster, especially the fact that ladies were not allowed entry, due to the animals' odour being 'rather bad, and their natural propensities somewhat peculiar'.
And on that note, let's go and have a cup of tea!
