THRIFT-O-RAMA

Third day off, well off is not the right word, today is cleaning
and laundry day. Also have a few things I want to list in my
Etsy shop but the light is terrible so I doubt the photos will
come out right.

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said a few days ago: "I don't know
where you find the time to work between all the thrifting."

Well, since I work in a charity shop that specialize in vintage
and retro it does make it pretty easy.
We go to the antique market (that's located about 50 meter
from our shop) one hour before we open so we have time to
scout, both for ourselves and for the shop.
We also get to pull stuff from one of the other branches so I
often find stuff that I want to adopt.

This is what I snagged last Friday at the antique market.


Vintage bra, £1.50.


1950's/1960's knitted lurex top, £1.50.


1960's stainless steel plate, 10 pence.


Big 1960's tray, £2.


1950's/1960's plates, 10 pence each.


1950's glasses, £5.


1950's vase, £1. 1960's thermometer, £1.
