Well I've had the children at home this week and understandably they're not very conducive to charity shopping so make of my various finds what you will.
First up this glass lemon juicer for 60p, I already own a metal equivalent but I think I might ditch it in favour of this, it's so much nicer to look at and as such I don't need to give it cupboard space as it can stay out on display
I saw this little old champagne glass for 10p
Then I spotted this for £1.50 but I couldn't put the 10p one back so I bought both home
The Babycham one is now home to my bunny girl ornament now posing in the style of a 1950s burlesque dancer
Then there's this sturdy chunk of glass, it's an old desk ink well and pen stand, I spotted it last week but the £10 price tag made me think twice, I was passing the shop again later in the week and decided if it was still there then it was coming home with me, although I can't decide whether to use it in my bureau or on my dressing table but I love the way it's stamped 'BRITISH MADE' from a time when things were actually manufactured in this country
I found these 8 children's coat hangers for 99p, Missy has desperately needed some more for a while now and the lovely sorbet colours caught my eye
With Easter on the horizon I happened upon these chocolate moulds produced by the cake topping company KAKE, I now have the ability to make not only a chocolate squirrel but also a chocolate acorn, jealous? I especially liked them because the set came complete with loads of brightly coloured foils to wrap your home made chocolates, £3 for the lot
This pretty cake stand was in the window of the same shop as the chocolate moulds and it was what lured me inside in the first place, £10 and apart from being a thing of beauty it more importantly dismantles for storage!
The following are not strictly charity shop finds but bargains I had to share.
I was in my local fabric and soft furnishings store purchasing some items for another textile project. I've been on the look out for some curtains for Buster's room for some time (he has a slatted blind but the morning sun and lighter nights are keeping him awake) and these pewter coloured ring-top curtains caught my eye. £26.99 down to £6.99 for the pair! I don't like ring-tops as a rule so I'm going to turn them into traditional pencil pleat curtains.
In the same shop I was getting some header tape cut to size for the curtain revamp when I noticed a couple of bags of random reels of cotton priced up at 99p each so I grabbed those too.
Mr Right was dragged round a few shops over the weekend, I didn't find anything but he managed to find this book for £1.50, although I don't think it's much easier to fathom than the film
