Well today my friends was the day! I went to a local town I don't often go to because I needed to pick something up from a good fabric shop there, when we walked out of the fabric shop I noticed a charity shop next door and thought, it's always worth a look, nothing... Then there was another one 2 doors down, nothing.... Then another one across the road, this was a bit better it was a furniture one, there were a few things that I might have bought if I had lots of spare cash and lots of spare room, but nothing really special. Then 2 doors down another one, did I think it was worth it, well hey I've been in the other 3, and this one was really worth it!
I only ever look at homeware type stuff, I've never found clothes in a charity shop, however my husband thought he'd look at the shirts, he's got some great vintage & repro shirts but he paints a lot and wants more shirts to just wear around the house, without wearing out his good stuff, and he found one! I couldn't believe it, he found a late 50's/early 60's shirt for £4! Here it is!
My lovely husband in his new shirt, it's a bit creased cos I took a photo straight out of the bag! It's not stunning but it's an old one, in a style he likes, it fits and it was cheap!
But it doesn't end there, I saw a really really lovely teaset in a cabinet, great colours so went to have a look with no intention of buying because I could see it was £20 but I wanted a closer look as I got close to the cabinet I saw the most fab set of 6 glasses with stylised stags on them, when I saw the price was £4 it was a no brainer, here they are, all in excellent condition, no chips, no wear or anything, I may have to buy some sherry just so I can drink out of them!! I assume they're sherry glasses?
And here's a close up
How amazing are they? They really go with my Meakin Stag Dinnerware too which you can see in this post here
And last but certainly not least this 1950s lemonade set! I LOVE it, I love frosted glass a lot, I love green and it was only £5 which I love even more!
I have to say I'm thrilled I LOVE all these purchases, I don't think they're just ok, neither did I buy them just cos they are the era we like, I genuinely love them all
I'm one very happy Straight Talking Mama!
