On Monday, Michael and I went Charity shopping and it always cheers me up no end to get;
a) vintage goodies
b) for next to nothing!
I only got a couple of things, spending the grand total of £1.20, so both boxes ticked! This is what I found;
60s chip and dip tray, in my favourite homeware shade of lurid orange! All the compartments are seperate so it stacks away neatly. It matches our 60s table perfectly and was mine for the bargain price of 30p the lot!
Underside of the trays - made by UK maufacturer, Dialene Better-Maid. It made me laugh when I bought them as the little old lady in the shop (who was very well spoken) said "ooh are these for your Hors d'œuvres dear?". Funny, as such a posh term, for bright orange 30p chip n' dip trays!
I also picked up this necklace from a different charity shop;
60s necklace - 80p. The beads are actually glass and it has a nice weight to it.
And a close up. It was a little grubby when I bought it, so as I always do with my charity jewellery buys, I soaked it in some warm water with Stardrops* in it for a few hours, then gently scrubbed with an old toothbrush and it came up gleaming white.
*Stardrops is an 'all purpose' cleaner that has been around in the UK since the war! Its only about £1 a bottle, which lasts for ever and you can use it for anything! Highly recommended :)
