If there's one thing my Current Husband says about my blog, it's that I don't feature enough of my charity shop finds. I am always, ALWAYS looking in charity shops, but of course quite often leave empty handed. 70% of the time this is due to there being nothing I want to buy, 30% it's because I have been exercising supreme will power.
This week I managed to resist buying a fab Meakin coffee set for £5. I don't drink much coffee so decided to leave it for someone else to enjoy. I hope my altruism means that it will find its perfect home.
Anyway, on to what I did buy:
A T.G. Green gripstand mixing bowl for £2. It's a classic design, and the slanted area at one side of the base means you can comfortably rest it on the table when tipping it up to stir. The 1930's versions of these bowls are very sought after. This one seems to be a more recent version, judging by the marks on the base (can't work out exactly when), but a steal at £2 nonetheless.
My local Salvation Army shop was having an 'Everything for 99p' sale. I picked up two duvets to use for dressmaking muslins. I think I might make a wearable muslin for a dress with the brown patterned one though. In 2 other shops I picked up a book for my holidays (50p) and a crochet throw (£1.49)
Finally - possibly the best for last. A set of 3 Pountney & Co Bristol Ware storage jars. They were £3.50 each and in perfect condition. I was planning to eBay them since they seem to fetch between £13 and £30 each, but I'm not sure if I can part with them now. Keep or sell?
