This week for Magpie Monday over at Me and My Shadow I have some good Charity shop finds.
The first item I'd like to show you is a dinner set I found last year. When I spotted it I nearly tripped over myself to get to it before anyone else. At a first glance I thought it was Denby but at closer inspection it was a company I had not heard of before, Sango. I knew it was very good quality though and would probably be expensive if purchased new.
"How much for the dinner set?" I shouted across the crowded Charity shop, too petrified to leave its side in case someone else nabbed it.
"A tenner!" The nice old lady behind the counter shouted back.
I couldn't pay quick enough.
When I arrived home I looked up Sango on the net and discovered its a popular US dinner set and nearly as expensive as Denby. A set like mine would have cost around £100 so I was thrilled with my bargain.
My next item is a 1970's Thermos flask. Don't ask me why but I love vintage flasks and when I spot one in good nick I go weak at the knees. This one was £1 and in brand new condition. I'm chuffed with it.
Another thing I'm collecting is vintage sheets and bedding ready for when I re-decorate my bedroom this year. I love bold 70's sheets and candlewick bedspreads and these little beauties were £2 for two Double sheets in immaculate condition and the candlewick bedspread is huge and was only £4.
So Pop along to Me and My Shadow and have a nose at all the other bargains
