Sometimes you have an experience which makes getting out of bed at 6:45am on a Sunday worthwhile. This Sunday was definitely one of those. It certainly made up for the previous Sunday when we ran round about 6 car boots in the rain and paused only to buy one drinking glass.
This week there was lots of vintage china and I even scored this Beryl jug for 50p. It’s got a teeny chip on the rim, but otherwise it’s lovely. The little green polka dot plate is so cute – very 50s. The square plate was bought off a very sweet lady who was selling lots of her Mum’s china. I couldn’t resist it.
These two vintage Mason Cash pudding basins are small in stature and will be perfect for a little sponge pudding for the Dr and I. The enamel mug is another find that I don’t know what I’ll do with, but I simply can’t leave a bit of enamelware behind.
Got a big wadge of Sheet music for £2.50 as well – this isn’t going on the wall, I’m going to play it as soon as I get my piano down here.
I think this was my best find of the day – it’s going to be an evacuee suitcase for my classroom during my WW2 topic and I might use the hat as a prop too. The case was £1 and the hat 50p. Can you believe that?? Car Boot prices are beginning to spoil me. Charity Shops now seem positively expensive! The Dr couldn’t believe me getting that Beryl jug for 50p – he spent an undisclosed (but I suspect very large) amount on a Beryl teapot, cup and saucer and little jug last Christmas. Today’s haul cost me a mere £7.
Now I just need to decide as to when I can persuade the Dr to take me to another one! He is usually pacified if I make him a Full English when we get home…
It is with an already warming frying pan I say:
It’s only vintage but I like it!
