Plenty of gratuitous shots. All pretties discovered recently; the blue stoneware jug was an Age UK purchase and a snip at 99p along with the vintage diamanté necklace for £1.49. The bargain of them all was the Robert Graves edition from the Penguin Poets series which was picked up while I was away in Birmingham from the Salvation Army 30p book shelf. I took it to the till and the lovely lady ringing up my finds said she couldn't possibly charge full price for such an old book and knocked it down to 10p.
There is now quite a horde of old sherry glasses, shot glasses and dessert bowls in my kitchen so I'd decided to knock glassware on the head a little until I'd either A) found a cupboard I could paint and prettify to house them all or B) moved somewhere bigger. Obviously I have little to no resolve as those three for £1 drew me in easily enough. Primark (or Primarni) turned up the denim and lace corsage for £1 - I couldn't have made one for that so I'm now wishing I'd bought another. Last but not least is the dainty vintage filigree flower bracelet (draped over said corsage, yep I'm a fan of the unoriginal artful drape!) which was 49p from Mind.
It's odd but until this week I hadn't given much thought to why I treasure hunt so much, eyes always peeled for something interesting or pretty no matter where I am, but I've become more aware of it lately. There is no stopping it though and without better storage my little house will be completely crammed, so next on the bargain hunting list are shelves and a small cupboard or two......
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
