I spent last weekend in my hometown of Salisbury, visiting some very good friends and my family. Whilst I was there I thought I ought to take in a little thrifting…..
I came home with 4 full bags on Sunday, having gone with only 1. Thankfully I hadn’t bought everything. Some was given and salvaged!
I love this sign as much as I love ‘The Wizard of Oz’…which is a lot. It was £3 from a little chain of shops called Forever England, which is a family business and I have to say that I love their products.
After hitting up Forever England (I also came away with the cutest white & red striped milk jug – which I have forgotten to photograph), I head up and down my favourite thrifty street, on the hunt for bargains.
My first find was this book of Christmas Stories by Charles Dickens. I love old books – it’s a smell that reminds me of my childhood. The pictures in this book really make me happy. Good old-fashioned illustrations.
My second and favourite find is this GORGEOUS mirror. It needs a good old clean and tighten before I can put it in pride of place. For £10 – I think I got an amazing shiny thing!
I was also given a lot of goodies this weekend by a friend of Mama Pigeon, who was cleaning out her loft before moving house.
Finally, I managed to salvage this box from the back door of a shop. The hinges were broken, but I’m sure I can think of something to do with it!
So now I’ve lined up a week of fiddling and projects for myself! Hopefully I’ll get them all finished and in place in our flat before P gets home Thursday!
Any thrifty goodness come your way recently?
