Friday saw me on a serious thrifting mission, I needed a fix and set myself a mental budget of about £10 to get it. I'd planned to head out to a car boot sale this morning too but after a late night with friends and dropping into bed around 2 I thought I'd spare passers by the sight of me, bright and breezy as a slug, shuffling my way round trying to bag a bargain at 7.00am!
The first thing I thought of when I spotted these Britvic juice glasses, beside the amazing price tag of only 60p for the pair, was a fellow thrifty chick - Scarlett of Scarlett Loves Elvis - as I'm fairly sure these would be right up her street.
I'm absolutely in love with all things Anthropologie, the home section is crammed with gorgeous buys and I'd seen some candlesticks very similar to those above on their website last year then missed them in the sale. These were £1 for the pair and I can't wait to find candles to fit!
The hexagonal Japanese plate and the little English made porcelain bell (was smitten by the heart shaped handle and little bird!) were being sold as a set for £1.50 - absolutely no connection to one another but I can never resist anything pretty made of china.
Little retro shot glass with yellow floral transfer, worn in places = winner at 20p. Will probably struggle to fit a tea light inside so it'll sit on a windowsill somewhere in the house.
I think the little stand is made of pewter or was silver plated at some point but I'm a bit of a weirdo and like the tarnished surface so snapped it up for £1. The glass bottle was peeking out from behind the juice glasses, I plonked it down onto the stand and it looked so nice I had to have that too at £1.50. I can't fathom what it bottle was used to decant though, sherry perhaps or maybe vinegar? Answers on a postcard!
Last but by no means least, and my star buy of the day, this farmhouse chair: £5! There are three more left in the shop and I'm sorely tempted to pick up another before they all vanish but I should probably decide what to do with this one first - paint, decoupage, wax, stain - any thoughts?
So £10.80 the lot and a chair makeover in the pipeline, a successful charity shop swoop!
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend,
