These are my charity shop finds this week:
I saw a couple of good looking birds in the charity shop
....i knew I just had to take this vintage glass juice jug home! Not bad for £1.50 :o)
Queen Anne rose design sandwich plate - £1.
I was excited when I spotted this granny blanket:
I have been after a more nautical coloured one for the little man's nursery as most of the ones I've seen recently have been pinky colours and also priced at stupidly high amounts. I wasn't the only one enamoured by this and was stalked around the shop by a middle aged suited lady who was sending out clear "put down the blanket vibes" no chance sweetheart at £3 this blanket was mine!
A 1960's Bohemia glass bud vase complete with original label. This was found in the most expensive charity shop in my area, i usually go and have a look but rarely buy but when I saw this marked up at 50p I couldn't believe my luck. I would like to thank the new girl for pricing this one :o)
I think I had Jem's eye for sparking glass when I saw this big breakable ball:
I was strangely drawn to this large glass bauble, its very tactile even hubby has had a feel ;o) So I had to buy it for £2.50 even without a clue to where I am going to display it. It has silver elastic attached but to be honest its so heavy that the elastic is a full stretch when hanging! It is a beauty though so I'm sure I'll find the perfect spot.
Now a purchase from my new favourite charity shop in my town, that being the Barnardo's shop. They price things to sell and they always have new goodies. I saw this in the cabinet:
I wanted a mantle clock for a while and this was fancy enough for my mansion *wink*. I asked the price...£3. It was out of the cabinet and wrapped up before anyone else could get a look in. I was pleasantly surprised when I got it home to find out that it was Laura Ashley - sweet :o)
Now hows about a little...
Overheard in a Charity Shop
Two old ladies chatting in the stock room while a third is sorting through bags:
Lady 1: "Jean told me she saw a lovely golden knob at the weekend"
Lady2: "Really!" (Guffaw) "How exciting" (more tittering)
Lady 1: "I know she wont tell us anymore about the magnificent knob though, oh look she's going red"
Lady 3 is suitably crimson "Oh come on Anne, you knew what I meant"
Lady 1 and 2 burst out laughing at Jean's expense.
A tall elegant lady was trying on a jacket by the store mirror
CS Worker: "Ooh very nice, how about you take it to the changing room so you can admire yourself even more than you are" (ooooh biatch!)
And I did chuckle to see the 'No more donations' sign up at the one charity shop here than never seems to sell anything...hows about getting rid of the year old tat?
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend :o)
