Thrift-a-long

The op shops were not playing their Siren Song for me this week - I think the days sped past before I really had a chance to think about getting out for a spot of treasure hunting! I did however get myself along to a school fete - the small , country town variety. It was great fun! Not only were there amazing confections like these ...


there were plenty of plant and produce stalls and lucky for me - a great big bric-a-brac table laden with goodies!

I purchased beads and china, pretty glass, an awesome piece of patterned copper and - well, some more tins. They are really pretty though! Ok so I think I am going to get tough about the Tin Moratorium 'cos I am running out of room to house them! Most  of these I will cut up which does make storage easier ...
I hope you had fun thrifting this week. Apologies to everyone who tried to link up with Thrift-a-long last week - the link kept disappearing! I have sussed out another link tool so hopefully we will have better luck this week. Link up and join the fun

I spotted the cross stitch tin too, so pretty! I had one of those weeks too, where it had gone before I realised I hadn't been into a single charity shop all week!xx
