Just a couple of little thrifty finds to share with you today, I have not been in the charity shops much lately (I am missing them!) but I have still managed to bring home a pretty bit of china or two!
Firstly is this gorgeous little green glass jug, the size and shape is perfect and it has become my new favourite jug of the moment! It looks really sweet displayed next to this big Meakin Utility China jug which I got a while ago.
It has no makers mark, but it looks quite old to me, and art deco in shape. I'd love to find some in other colours as I really like coloured glass, and there is lots of it about to be found. I could see it becoming a new collection hobby of mine!
Last weekend I went to the Joy of Vintage Fair in Watford, which was lovely, although a little smaller than I had imagined it would be. Luckily there was a lovely stall which was selling my kind of pretties; floral and utility china, fabric and handmade goodies. I spotted this beautiful 'Greendawn' coffee pot and was expecting it to be really over priced, but it was £6 and in perfect condition so I went ahead and bought it. My mum was also standing next to me admiring a set of yellow 'Petalwear' plates, so we decided to get those too as they were only £4 for four plates.
I do like finding a piece of utility china in charity shops and think the thrill of the treasure hunting is great, but it is also rather nice when someone has done the hard work already and found those lovely things for you, and even better - will sell them to you at a reasonable price too!
What finds have you been keeping this week?
I really love to know what my readers have been up to, so please do let me know in the comments!
