Charity shopping, wherein I buy the best retro plates.

I shouldn't really be buying anything else from the charity shops, but I just had a quick peek in and this happened,

At least there's only 2, right?  I keep seeing this Bacchus design as a full set, with all the plates, cups, bowls, teapot and the whole shebang, which is great, it's my favourite retro plate design, and I would love it, but I have absolutely no room for it.  I'm only allowed to buy orphan retro plates, so I snapped these up, even though they're not in the best condition.

I also bought this little Japanese bunny.  He has a little chip on his toe, but it's not much bother to him in his new life living in the top of a large plant pot containing a rubber plant.

Aaand this skully bracelet.  Beacuase it's so rainbowy.  But also quite heavy which may be why it made it's way to the charity shop in the first place.

  1. Little Japanese Bun looks rather cute, almost as if he has bowed down. I'd not even noticed his little chipped toe, adds to his charm ☺
