OFTEN a bargain is not far away when visiting a car boot or the equivalent table top sale, and a keen eye and an inquisitive nature are the best tools to use when eyeing up what's on display.
On his last visit to Old Hill's table top sale John Morby of Cradley Heath wasn't looking for anything special. He just wanted to enjoy a rummage in the hope of finding a money spinner. Then his eye was attracted by a brass frame containing the portrait of a young lady. He told us: "I was happy with the brass frame but the young woman had an aura of mystery. Her signature on the photo was Millie, but I wanted to find out more. On the reverse side the words 'Happy Christmas and New Year' had been written plus '1914 War'. It was frustrating the edges of the photo had been cut off to fit the frame and you could see other details were missing. So next stop was Bugle House to see whether other readers might know anything about the mysterious Millie."
