Here are some of my favourite bootsale goodies from the past week or so.
The four items in the first photograph came to a total of £1.25 from the same seller. I've found myself starting a little collection of globes recently, there's something about them which draws me in. This one isn't vintage, in fact I think it is a smaller version of a John Lewis one I bought for my God Son, but for 50p I couldn't say no. The candle sticks, ah the candle sticks. I've developed more than a collection of candle sticks, Mr Thrifty would call it an obsession - he can shut up. I can't resist them, especially if they are coloured. Who doesn't want a little forest of candlesticks dotted along a shelf?
This gorgeous mantle clock was 50p. You read that right, 50p. Utterly crazy. Sure, it needs a good clean and a new key for winding but 50p? Aaaaaamazing. Isn't she beautiful? I shall call her Cassandra.
This slice of kitsch-y Catholic fabulous-ness set me back a hefty £1.75. Cue sucky-teeth-builder-giving-a-quote noise. It is light as a feather and I feel the need to stick magnets to the back and have it cover up our ugly boiler but Mr Thrifty - he say no.
I picked up these cufflinks for Mr Thrifty for 25p. Everything on the stall was 25p, everything. So I picked up a fist full of necklaces and got the hell outta there
