Lucky Seven is reputed to be the most authentic Diner this side of the Brooklyn Bridge based in W2 along the Westbourne Park Road, it was also the title to a TV series, the title of a film and a tobacco brand State side. However my lucky seven was this evening for on my journey home I found a £5 note drifting along a pavement in the breeze.
As I bring to you a range of possible gifts sourced from charity shops, table top sales, car boots and the like I can’t help putting a grin on my face after remembering picking up a pewter tankard from a junk shop off the Askew Road in West London paying a £5 note for it only to find that it was stamped on the bottom with the Dunhill brand logo.
It is now my treasured vessel for consuming ale out of and when used gives me great pleasure. Yet again I prove that there are treasures to be found amongst the tat and cast offs that reach the charity shops and bric-a-brac stalls across the land. I therefore raise a glass to those who go in search of treasures past for future Christmas presents.
