Anyway, I'm back now and raring to get things back to normal so what better way than with a Junk Shop Jewels post. Here are some more items that I've plucked from the jaws of hell for your delight and I'm sure my husband's dispair.
First up some more gorgeous wooden cotton reels, I found 18 of them for the princely sum of 10p each!!!!!
Having found the mother load of cotton spools I also had a spot of luck with the lesser-spotted vintage bed linen with a beautiful pink floral double sheet (£2.50) and a candy stripe pillow case (50p)
I met up with Liz (of Magpie Monday fame) for a lovely and very civilised Christmas Crafternoon at her gorgeous gaff and in a wonderful coincidence there happened to be a jumble sale running that afternoon and she took me along to my maiden jumbly. Shockingly given my thrifty ways I have never been to a proper jumble sale! Car boot sales and charity shops yes but jumble sales are severely lacking in my neck of the woods so it was great to finally get to rummage through dead people's stuff in a cosy village hall elbow to elbow with other like-minded tramps.
My haul included this dressing up costume for Missy (50p)
An old rug beater (20p)
And this 1960s Quelrayn Zipper (50p)
Love it, now I just need to get myself a captain's hat, a turtle neck and some slacks and I'll fit right in with the marketeer's 1968 vision
