This Week's Junk Shop Jewels

A bit of a mixed bag to share this week.

First up this funky scrap book for 25p for Buster, I bought it in the vain hope that it would provide a home for the millions of teeny bits of paper that litter every surface in his bedroom.  It was a bargain as it still had the original £1.10 WHSmith price sticker on it
Isn't coincidence a funny thing, just last week I blogged about the book 'They F*** You Up' and this week I find a copy of it in a charity shop for £1.50, it was fate, so I just had to buy it. although by the time I get round to reading it I will probably have already f***ed up my children!
Whilst at the till paying for the scrapbook and book I noticed a basket of old stamps so purchased a bumper bag for £1.50, I'm going to use them for craft projects
Later in the week I found this diddy little ceramic toast rack in pistachio green with gold detailing, it's a beaut and a steal at £3.99, I'm thinking about using it in my bureau for keeping notelets organised
I found these pretty pink and gold square shaped side plates, £1.99 for the set of six
These two translucent glass bowls with a gorgeous rose detail were £2.49 for the pair
And finally for the charity shops, this wonderful cream deco sugar bowl for £1.25
I went to another vintage sale and picked up a few items of note there

This Sunlight Flakes sack for £8 which I'm going to make into a cushion
This Bambi style brooch for £4
This dustpan and brush set, I loved the way the brush is the woman's skirt, £5
This set of fish cutlery with the bone-style handles for £5, I want to use the forks as cake forks, not sure what I'll do with the knives
And finally these lovely old buttons, £1 for 4
I bet you're wondering what all the other Magpies ended up with this week, if so take a peek here
