Found

Where we live people often don't wait for a council pick up to collect unwanted household items and old kids stuff. Instead used goods are often put out on the footpath for the right passerby to spot, pickup and reuse. I have been lucky in the past but this is by far my best find. laying on top of a pile of old cardboard boxes, we spotted this vintage malvern star in original and near new condition. The find was all the sweeter as my 8 year old girl had outgrown her bike and needed another one - a perfect fit for her too! It's curious that it was barely used (original tyres, brakes in good condition and no rust) and that it was held onto for so long only to be discarded during a week of rain. A small mystery to bug a collector of found objects.
