I love a good sniff around a second-hand store.
Someone had taken such care with this collection.
It was sitting surrounded by horrible glasses and Jim Reeve records [always a Jim Reeve record in a second-hand shop in Wales] Cardboard cover – two pink rubber bands keeping it all together and a sticker reading ‘GLASS’.
I’m guessing the sticker they really wanted was ‘FRAGILE’ but it does the trick.
A collection of ferns, grasses and leaves. Some wrapped in toilet paper – some given a description but most are not.
I’m not sure they are a especially rare collection – but I love it even more for that.
In isolation these fern leaves or Elderflower stems are just stunning.
