A few treasures
I was rather lucky over the holidays to find a number of things I really liked, on Sat I found this oil lamp it was very dirty and although i like a bit of shabby this looks much nicer after a wash, it is stamped on the bottom made in Austria and only cost me £1:50p
I love the colours on these glasses I would like to use them but they are so thin. I remember my Grandmother having something similar when I was young.
I am now trying to find more of the ones on the left, my daughter found some with red roses on which she loves.
The lady I bought these off has a rather fun way of ending the day she always has the same pitch with 2 long tables and a huge floor space, the tables are priced at 3 items for a £1 one table being a bit dearer this is where I bought my lamp from. At the end of the day she shouts constantly " fill a bag with any items from the floor as much as you can get in for £1" I have done this a couple of times and it can be great fun this week i got a wooden box to decoupage a glass cake stand a couple of small items and these. I only got these because she insisted I had my £1s worth. Can't remember the last time I saw old money on anything
Well thats all for now i will post some more later in the week I don't want to bore you too much i hope you have all had a good day i found my first day back tiring but it was lovely to see all of the children again.
bye for now
