Thrifting Delights

A wonderful Car Boot sale this weekend turned up some gems:

A pair of Brentleigh Ware jugs

A Basildon Bond envelope holder from an old shop to use as a letter rack

A vintage glass ashtray for Paul's bar. I love the wording!

A 1950's teacosy. I have some of this rose fabric in blue.

A T G Green polka dot mug

Smart Girl annual from 1964, a very good year!

Plenty of fashion tips for the smart girl. I want that polka dot dress!

A pair of cute 1950's salt and pepper pots in the shape of penguins.

Some unusual vintage rick rack, stripes and gingham.

The loveliest Midwinter teapot. I adore this design and have a few plates to match.

A cute Midwinter eggcup, polka dot of course!

Some great retro fabric featuring Hector's House characters from the 1970's

and a lovely dish for serving nibbles.

A vintage sewing basket

and last, but not least, some polka dot ribbons.

Pin It
