I have perused quite a few charity shops in the last week, both in Wales and in Hampshire. Surprisingly, I haven’t had much luck. Today I did about ten shops in a half mile. I did see this Portmerion Totem coffee set. It was pristine and had one of the most dramatic 70s coffee pots I’d ever seen!


It’s hard to get a sense of it from here but it must be well over 30cm tall – quite a statement. I didn’t purchase it – not really my style!


This did catch my eye though. To me, it looked like rhubarb. I love rhubarb. Although, on a closer examination, I think it’s celery. Very pink, pink celery. Hmmm. It was £1.99 so I’m sure I’ll find a use for it at that price.

Heading out again tomorrow, so maybe I’ll have more luck then!

It is with a hopeful smile I say:

It’s only vintage but I like it!
