Saturday finds

It's been a rubbish week for car booting, thanks to the flipping rain !!
So had a ride over to the charity shop, there were two annoying families in there, with whiney kids and loud voices, constantly yackking on and on!!
But managed to find a couple of things :)
First is this Sherwood Ridgway 'white mist' tea set, £3
theres 6 saucers, 6 small plates, 1 cake plate, Tea pot, milk jug and sugar bowl, but only 5 cups, plus the daft old buggers who wrapped it up forgot to put the jug and bowl in, despite me repeatedly saying 'is it all in the bags?' anyway I rang them and they are putting them behind the counter with my name on till monday, arghh but I want to play with them all now !!! lol

Next we have a chicken plate, £1,
I know I have far too many cups but thought these were too pretty to resist, 25p each
This is a Beswick mouse my daughter bought for £2, he's called Steve, aparently .
Thanks for looking, hope you all find some fab things too this weekend. :)
join up with the flea market finds too HERE


  1. I really love that tea set, you got a lot of lovely bargains this week. I really enjoyed looking at your blog, I salute your hair, outwardly I'm a 50 something going quietly grey mouse but inside I'm a flaming magenta 50 something rebel......sort of.

  2. Wow - great price for the tea set! The little mouse is so cute!

  3. Free your inner rebel Aunty Bee !! I'm nearly 44 and think lifes too short to worry about what other people think, get your hair done !! you can always say you did it for charity, lol.
    The mouse is lucky to still be here Liz ! As I took the photo, it slid off the tray on my knee, and I only just caught it before it hit my concrete kitchen floor !

  4. Love your chicken plate! I scored all things chicken this weekend too, I'll post mine over the next few days, did I say I love that chicken plate?

  5. Love that tea set; what a pretty pattern! Steve is just adorable. So glad he didn't meet his end on the concrete floor.

  6. I hate it when the kids are ridiculous. All I want to do is shop not be in the middle of a family argument.
    Great finds despite :)
