Lovely Bargains

Two Sundays ago my mother-in-law and I had a good
nosey round some of the antiques and vintage shops here
in Sheffield. We went to four different places, stopping for
 tea and cake along the way. It was a nice little outing that
I thoroughly enjoyed and it was made more exciting by all
the lovely bargains we found.

First of the lot was this old basket which, at £2.50, was
my most expensive purchase that afternoon. The size is just
perfect for storing my yarn stash and for such a happy price
it would have been silly of me not to buy it, so I did!

My next lucky buy was this colourful shopper,
another steal at £2.

My mother-in-law found this little plate amongst
other items on sale in one of the vintage shops.
The colours are pretty and it was less than a pound
so why not?

Last but not least was this Cath Kidston mug which
was a bit of a surprise when I was looking through some
old kitchen items. Again it's in great condition and still looks
nice and just a £1. So it came home with me too.

And that's my lovely lot, great bargains found
on a happy Sunday afternoon. I'm hoping to have another
afternoon just like this very soon.

Thanks for reading!

Have  a lovely week!
