Charity shop shopping is a fickle mistress. Sometimes you find lots, sometimes you can go months without finding anything. I’ve been through a dry spell and lost heart a little bit.
This week I nipped out to the post office at lunchtime and decided I had time to pop into one or two charity shops. I found a lovely Meakin teapot in Oxfam but the £9.95 price tag seemed rather steep. Next door in British Heart Foundation I found three Britvic glass and three CherryB glasses priced just £2. I love vintage glassware and have some Britvic tumblers that my Mum bought me.They have so much character and I knew I had to have them! When I got them to the till the manageress gave me a kind of sideways look and asked if I was interested in retro glasses. I confirmed that I was and she said she had six Babycham glasses out in the back room that she hadn’t put out yet.I don’t really need to tell you my response do I? I’m very happy with my vintage glassware for just £4 in total. Now I just need to host a little winter party to make the most of my beautiful new glasses. What are your best charity shop bargains?
It is with a plan forming I say:
It’s only vintage but I like it…
