I found the key.

It was a Saturday for magpies. Buttons and cotton reels at the market. Old enamel plates.

My friend Henri has a shop, the most marvelous shop.
is near Franschoek, on the R45.
Beautiful painted furniture from Eastern Europe. Enamel, enamel... mountains of gorgeous Polish enamel to fuel the flames of an obsession. Grain bags from the Ukraine, huge coloured glass vessels, zinc baths, tiny leather shoes for dolls... all the things you never even knew you wanted.

(And on the way to the key, we found an eye.)
