How I love Pyrex !

I'm on holiday from work but still had to go in and do 3 hours of my NVQ3 coursework with my tutor!
Not too bad as she is a really nice woman :)
so decided to cheer myself up with a trip to my favorite charity shop of course !

Glad I did as I saw this lot as soon as I walked in ....
All mine for the amazing price of ......
Here it all is tidied up, 9 cups, 12 saucers, 7 plates, milk and sugar , gravy boat and plate. in the Tempo carnaby design, I have a couple of steak plates and casseroles that match already.

In the back room, waiting to be priced, I saw these....
and the price turned out to be....
Tally ho! design, only 3 cups, 4 side plates, 4 saucers, milk and sugar.

I hurriedly carried the box out to the car before they changed thier mind on the price !
Back inside and a bit more poking about found these two....
A litle JAJ pyrex jug and a tiny Salter scale (needs a wash ), the lighter is in the pic to show how small they are, and the price,.....

£1 the pair :)

Had another look in the china department and my daughter spied this ....
A Tremar cheese dish that matches the dinner set I got last week.
and the price ? you guessed it....


Headed for the bookshelves and found these...
you'll never guess the price,

£1 for all 3.

Time to travel across the carpark to the other building where they sell clothes and odds n ends,
Nothing much takes my fancy, so starting to feel a bit disapointed but, hidden amongst the curtain were these !!
They have to be the cutest kitchen curtains ever ! I've take the photo in 3 parts to show the whole of the design along the bottom. Pity I can't use them in my kitchen as they would hang over the cooker, but once I get out of this rented house, I am so going to design my kitchen around them, lol.
and the price ? ....
slight change here, they were £2 !

thank you for reading :)

  2. Great finds - and they look in perfect condition, too - lucky you!

  3. Wow! Your charity shop must be the cheapest in the country, what amazing prices for fabulous items!

  4. My mum used to have the huntsman design and I remember that design really clearly as a kid - very nostalgic.

    Those curtains are so cute too!

  5. Amazing prices for a charity shop, and absolutely gorgeous items. I've been priced out of most of our charity shops now. :(

  6. I think you did really well and I like everything you bought. The charity shop seems sooooooo cheap!

  7. wow fab finds and what excellent prices! charity shops here have a cheek to charge around 10 to 15 quid for old dinner sets!

  8. Great thrift finds at prices you can't beat. Lucky you. Love the dishes.❤

  9. great finds especially the your profile image oh and Tim Minchin too...

  10. Very impressed and slightly envious to see your bargain finds this week. Especially the pyrex set. Also little tiny measuring jugs are really useful for measuring small amounts. Well done!

  11. Never heard of a salter scale before. Very interesting.
