A South African friend of mine gave me a big bag full of 'stuff' she found in her late grandmother's belongings. She told me she thinks it is rubbish but maybe I would find some of it interesting. The bag contained a pile of old magazine clippings and pull-out patterns.
The Sarie Marais is/was an Afrikaans women's magazine. Today it is known as SARIE
STER (star) was a very popular family magazine when I was a child. I couldn't find any reference of it online, but I remember my dad worked for them when I was still small.
The bag also contained this biscuit tin.
Inside the tin I found lots of old recipe booklets,
Some embroidery remnants,
and lots of leftover yarn. It was a great find and definitely not rubbish by my standards!
