Firstly, I went to the Charity shops on Thursday with my sister Elaine who I met first for lunch. Got a few cool bits, with the grand total spend of 90 pence!
60s plantpot - 50p, Salvation Army
I am so happy with this! I never see plant pots but always look for them. This super retro leaf design is by Hornsea Potteries. This is a new home for Colin the cactus. Michael has owned Colin since he was at school!
60s glass - another intake for our vintage glass orphanage! 40p from YMCA
Yesterday morning, we went to the Saturday Flea Market at Earlestown. What a disaster! It was quite bright when we set off, but as soon as we got there, the downpour started. It was torrential, and we got soaked! I had ballerina pumps on and had squelchy feet for the rest of the day, yuk. Needless to say we didn't get anything, boo!
We decided to try again this morning with a visit to a large field car boot that we haven't been to since last year. I'm so glad we did as we got some great bargains! :)
Repro 50s style chrome Salter scales - perfect for weighing my parcels! A complete steal at just 50p
Alfred Meakin 60s side plates - 25p each.
I usually 'Google' the style name of the crockery I buy to find out more about it, however I have been somewhat cautious with these plates......
Can you see why? Goodness knows what would come up on a Google image search for these! ;O
I also picked up a few new bits for me....
Red and pink flamingo dress (originally from Next) - £1
Close up of the print, so cute!
And...I've been looking for some of these for ages....seek and ye shall find...
Leather Converse boots, never worn - £13.
The seller wanted £20 but I bartered and wore her down and got them for £13, hooray!
Very pleased with this weekends bargains :)
