My mum usesd to fall in love with market traders, which you might have thought was out of character. Hers were not of food though, but mostly of antiques and bric-a-brac - Mr Anstey and his stall were far more warmly present in my childhood than most of her actual family - and Jewish vendors of fabrics, who must have awoken some atavistic memory of her mixed ancestry of East Anglian Jews and silk-weavers.

Tomi's toms are a lovely red!


Now I'm in love with Mr Antsey too. Mr Antsey's Antiques and Bric-a-Brac has quite the ring to it.

And though utterly unscientific, I do believe we somehow remember how our far past is woven--figuratively, and for your mother, literally.
