Great finds at the Junk Shop today!

This doesn't happen often but I could have spent a small fortune at my favourite Junk Shop today, instead I limited myself and only spent a small amount but came away with some great finds!

First up this fabulous bamboo/rattan chair, I LOVE it, we don't have anywhere for it right now but I'm just about to move our bedroom around and hoping it will fit in there, if not, I'll sell it on, but I'm hoping I don't have to as these don't come around very often and never at the price I paid!!



I just love it, very pleased!

Absolute bargain of the day though is this folding lawn chair, which I think is either 50s or 60s maybe earlier I don't really know but the wooden arms are a give away to the likelihood of it not being later. I love the design on it, it needs a damn good clean that's for sure, and there is a little pull at the seams but it held me just fine and -sadly - I'm no lightweight! How much was this bargain? £2!





I think this really was a bargain and as we don't have much outside furniture so this one is definitely staying with me!

Next bargain was this great little shelf that I'm going to put up in the kitchen, nothing special but cute and old and most importantly super cheap!



Don't worry I'm not going to make Paul hold it up that was just for the purposes of taking pics I will put it up properly!!

And last but not least are some old African Art pictures which are amazing but we are going to sell them on, we love them but we already have some nice ones and don't have appropriate space, but they are fabulous!



I really like these but rescued them as I'm sure someone will love them and they were just dumped in a plastic bag in amongst the junk, despite that they weren't super cheap but definitely worth it!

So all in all a great day of junk shopping, this shop is my favourite you never know what you will find and more excitingly you can't see half of it cos it's piled up like an old Junk yard, however is prices are usually not peanuts, he's not stupid but they are nowhere near ebay or Antique shop prices, love it there, I could spend hours in there, well I could end up buried in a pile of junk there!

What fab finds! It looks like the vintage gods were smiling on both of us today! Love that rattan chair and adore the deckchair. We had an orange one very similiar until a larger friend visited and the fabric ripped leaving him in a very undignified position. xxx

I love the folding chair, they are so useful and come in so many designs... every garden should have a few stashed in the shed for impromptu drinks 'on the lawn' (or concrete in my case).

That bamboo chair is what we call a papasan chair over here in the Colonies and it comes with a great big pillow to lounge on so you don't get splinters in your butt. The lawn chair is super but there is NO WAY I'd even attempt to sit in it--as soon as I sat down it would splay out in four directions!

Just popping by to say hello after we met at The Maltings! Great finds up there - I'm wondering which this junk shop is... Grest to meet you and Paul yesterday - it sure helps you get through a quiet-on-the-customers-front day if you have someone to chat with! See you next month, most probably!
