Joe says he's noticed I keep putting things in bags and asking him to carry them away to the charity shop for me, but that I also keep bringing other things in other bags into the house from those same charity shops. Yep, that's just how it works round here I'm afraid Joseph, here are some things I've been buying from the charity shops recently (and I bet Joe hasn't even seen some of these yet!).
I walked passed the charity shop on my way to buy the paper for work and spotted a motherlode of blue retro crockery. It was a Saturday morning and I was pretty sure it'd all be gone when I went back...but it wasn't! I chose this little bowl because it's cute and I can probably pop a plant in it.
Retro bowl, £1, local Samaritans charity shop.
This was the only other bit I bought from all the blue retro crockery, which was obviously someone's lifelong collection. I guess it's a casserole dish, or a serving dish of some kind.
Retro Midwinter 'Caprice' dish, £3, local Samaritans charity shop.
I have a really lovely 70s enamel pendant that I really would like to wear, but it's a big cross and I don't feel comfortable wearing it, so I set out to find something new and scored this on eBay.
Enamel necklace, £1.20 plus P&P, eBay.
I picked up this plate to pop under a plant, I'm always on the look out for retro crockery I can repurpose in the garden.
Bilston's plate, 50p, local Air Ambulance charity shop.
