I was going to name the post Scarlett loves Pot but those not reading the post may mistake what I'm about lol.
When I was young I collected two things: rubbers (or erasers to clarify for those dirty minds among us lol) and tins. I used to go to the boot sales with my dad loaded with my weekly pocket money and I would buy old tins. I've always loved items I can put stuff in, or hide treasures from my big brother. My tin collection was massive and took up all the shelves in my bedroom. When I turned into a teenager, in the quest to get "cool" all my tins were given to the charity shop. I wish I'd had the foresight to have kept those tins as I'm sure I would have had some really quite valuable ones now - always the way hey.
So from my previous buys you've probably seen my love of pots, tins, baskets and pretty much anything I can put my
tat treasure in. No surprise then on my buys from yesterdays charity shop visits:
First off is an Italian glass trinket dish:
Reduced from £1.99 to 99p - the previous date on the sticker was 3rd December 2010 so its taken them a while to reduce it!
Another trinket pot:
This is hand cross-stitched and came with a little card inside:
I'll be having to thank Patricia A. Gale for her handy work. Bet she would be annoyed to know it was sold on in a charity shop for £1.49 :o)
A little glass Avon jar which came complete in its original packaging:
The box is dated 1988 and has probably been hidden away with the shoulder pads and ra ra skirts. Its a very sweet jar though and of course will be filled with odds and sods soon enough. This was also on the sale shelf for 50p.
The next buy was a Cath Kidston print-a-likey by Whittards:
The lid doesn't fit the cup very well so i think the tea pot that matched must have got broken and they then thought they would be inventive and use the lid on the mug. It was £1 so i had to take this little odd ball home.
The last buy of the day was found right at the back of the shelf:
Have a fabulous weekend my lovelies
