Thrifting for Summer!

I'm still waiting for Summer to arrive, today started quite sunny and bright here in Cornwall but by lunchtime it had clouded over and I should imagine it will rain any minute! With the lack of Summer in mind I went to the charity shops on Saturday with the hope of bringing some flowery things home to brighten it up indoors.

Rose pyrex gravy boat and saucer£1.50 , small pot £1 , blue lidded pot£1 , Booths bowl £1, Octagonal lidded pot and matching bowl £1.75 , Limoges lidded rose decal pot £1
and ...........

another floral picture 50p, a gorgeous little clock £ , 2 pink tinted glass candlesticks £2.00, small glass candlestick 75p and a cut glass pot £1.45.

and then ....


in QS Ibought a couple of rose patterned boxes for £2 and £3. Then when I got home my bargain Laura Ashley throw had been delivered £3.50!



On Sunday we had a quick look around a very quiet car boot and came away with this lot ..


Red pan £1, Birds custard tin 50p, cake stand £1, 2 boots £1.
and .......

a mirror and a basket for £2 each.

and finally ...

a large blue bowl £1, rose spoon £1 and a plastic lidded server 50p couldn't resist this one as I remember my mum having one exactly the same when we were little.

Great bargains. I think you did amazingly well and can bet you cleared the place!
I was looking at those boxes in QS the other day and wondering whether to get them to stash all my bits and bobs. Wish I had now!
