Tales Of Thrifting #1

Got a mega haul in various thrift stores/charity shops in my hometown today -

Art

The large floral is an acrylic painting, the lady in the hat is (from what I can tell) a print that has been accented with acrylic paint, the girl and boy are matching prints in gold plastic frames, the floral circle is a print and the flowers on black background are embroidery on fabric.

Homewares
A large metal painted bowl adorned with young couples and roses.

Handmade toadstool cushion to add to my collection that is threatening to take over the armchair!



Ornate cupboard handles (no purpose as yet) and a pale pink heart shaped trinket bowl.

Oversized rose print coasters.

Cake plates and saucers (some for a potential move into vintage homewares/gifts for TTA).

Clothes


Handmade vintage blouse - looks good open or fastened.

But how much did it all come to? Well, if they still made penny sweets I'd have come home with all of this and a fistful of fizzy cola bottles and only £10 lighter!!!!!

Nice print on that shirt! I love bow tie shirts, I often wear mine with a bow at the back of my neck when I have my hair up! It's cute and I feel like a puppy in a basket!!

I now have the image of you dressed up as a puppy on the front of a vintage greetings card in my head :) I shall definately be trying it though. Also it was a bargain 75p!!!!!

Did you ever get that Zara top?
