Bargain vintage finds

A wooden pipe ...I think it's Bavarian, wooden rule and a square metre of binca( binka) for £2.99 in the Oxfam shop and the best thing is that £2.99 will buy "30 cassava cuttings. The leaves are pounded, boiled and eaten with a thick maize porridge."


  1. We have one of those pipes as belonged to my husband's Belgian great-grandfather. It is just beautiful - great finds!

  2. Thank you Brittany I love it to. I couldn't believe my luck when I found it...I wonder whose great-grandfather smoked it, and exactly where it originated.
