Time to show you some goodies I thrifted recently. These were all found on the same day, in a couple of charity shops. That's unusual for me, thrifting around here is usually quite rubbish, the thrift fairy must have waved her wand and sprinkled some thrift-dust on me that day.
No item here was more than 50p - glass candlesticks, embroidered linens, pretty saucers, a souvenir jug, a book of verse and a cameo style brooch.
The little jug is Victorian I think and says "Present from Redcar". I love this type of souvenir china, I like to imagine who might have bought this, what sort of day out they had and whether the recipient was pleased with their gift.
The brooch is pretty too, it has some tiny moulded roses inside. I think I might make a cushion specially to pin it to.
And hand-embroidered mats are always a pleasure to find, especially red and pink roses.
These aren't the most fantastic finds, not particularly unusual, but considering I usually come away empty-handed, not a bad little haul.
Thank you Thrift Fairy, I do appreciate your efforts,
