As promised, this week's haul. It's been a fruitful few days and my purse is staying firmly in my bag today. As I am still in my dressing gown and have to dye my hair and tidy up my eyebrows before a big 50th birthday bash tonight, it won't be too hard. I am staying indoors today just to be on the safe side. There was a fleeting moment this morning when I realised I hadn't given the three chazzas in my village the once over for about a week, but I knew that would mean walking past the ironmonger/wool shop and I realised it was far too dangerous.
Wool Corner as of yesterday. (Some of it is hidden in bags.)
More than enough for one person who knows that before long the crochet bug will pass, don't you agree?
Right on to the exciting bits.
Tea set bought yesterday in Strood in Kent for a fiver. No sugar bowl and no plates (I'm so short of a plate... ha ha)but worth buying for the cake plate and the milk jug and it's prettiness. Please note the absolute gorgeousness of the flowers painted inside the cups. I swooned a little bit in the shop when I noticed. It made me more happy than it should have.
Next the Pyrex.
Now plates from Leigh on Sea on Thursday. My heart was beating all fast when I saw these.
Bought this picture in the same shop as the ivy plate, it was £2. Loved the poppies on it and even the frame is ok. Black plastic but I kind of like it and will hang it up when I find a bit of space for it.
Now not a charity shop buy but bought from a lovely shop in Leigh on Sea called Mad Dogs and Englishmen. My lovely friend gave me a voucher for my birthday and I bought this.
Back to the chazza stuff.
Shoes, lovely ones, never worn, in my size for £5.99.
Finally, last night's retro afters.
Oh my word, what a mammoth post. I hope I haven't bored you. It's quite lovely to have people to show my buys to, other than my sister, who don't think I'm a mental cow or turn their nose up at the thought of entering a charity shop. I also noticed that I have seven followers now! Blige me, I'm not talking to myself! How nice. Thank you for putting up with the waffle if you are reading this.
Have a smashing weekend!
