Rain! Rain! go away,
come back, but not on a boot sale day !
Sadly I was unable to go to my beloved boot sale this week due to the non stop rain, but also because it was No 1 son’s 16th Birthday and Grandma came to stay. We have been very busy, I did have a few hours while Grandma entertained the boys to get my Vintage China business up and running, please pop over and like my facebook page. I am really pleased with the welcome page The White Approach.
Here are some pieces I have picked up on previous bargain hunts.
Totally immaculate bright sunny yellow metal scales. Purchased, well I say purchased he sold them to me for £1 !! about a month ago. TIP : If you see a young lad selling off his grannies items, pounce on him. He will have no idea of their Thrifty, vintage value.
In my favourite charity shop in the world, tucked way out in the back. They have a shelf where they pop candle votives, marked 10p ! Its the place I look second, after the china shelf. I have so far managed to pick up about 10 glass candle holders. You can never have enough pretty candles scattered around your home. From the dining table to the bathroom. I adore candles .
Along from the glass shelf are the boxes that hold the cups and saucers. 50p per cup and 50p per saucer. I scoop them up on a regular basis. Whether I can find matching sets or not. These are rarely the gorgeous English bone china ones that I covert, but occasionally a gem surfaces.
I love the pattern on these Lord Nelson Pottery Oasis cups and saucers.
That’s it today, promise to try harder . Please pop over and take a look at all the other great thrifty finds at Magpie Monday
