Went to Bucks the other day to look at a possible important
purchase for the future but it turned out to be all wrong so no
go this time.
We decided to make a day of it since we were out & about
already so we scouted the charity shops in areas we passed
on out way home.
Didn't find much but I'm thrilled about my Hanukkah gift that
I got from my man... Scroll down...

Lot of vintage kitsch, £1.80. (approx $2.90)
I was over the moon to find a whole lot of these red flocked deers
for such a tiny sum! Two like these went for quite a lot on ebay UK
the other day!

1950's boat lamp, 50 pence. (approx $0.80)
Clearly a restoration project but still cool!

Stunning 1950's/1960's dress, £18. (approx $30)
Found this in a shop called Kitsch Me Quick and I fell in love with it 
on the spot! My man insisted on getting it for me as a Hanukkah gift!

45" rack & table wastebasket/flower pot, £1 each
(approx $1.60 each)
As many 45's as we got these racks are essential! 
The wastebasket will be prefect on my hobby desk.

Old bamboo bottle opener & compact mirror with light.
Because the shop manager loved my hair (faux bangs) and thought I 
was a sweetheart.

At last!
I finally sorted my hobby room out!
Last time I took pictures (2009) there weren't that much
stuff in there, as you can see here.
It looked like a dump site not so long ago and it took me
an entire day to sort, tidy and clean the place.
I also changed the curtains the other day before our Dutch
friends arrived.
(I got vintage plastic tulips everywhere and tulip barkcloth curtains.)
Now it's a delight to be in there.

Went into town to get some toiletries and to scout the charity shops.
Lately I’ve found nothing and there wasn’t much to speak about today.
I got myself a pair of fruity earrings and a broken Bakelite brooch for
the total of £1.75. (approx $2.80)
I’m going to remove the bits that’s left of the pin and glue a bail on the
back and use it as a pendant.

My favorite bargain of the day is this cute lunchbox that I snagged in
one of this towns many bargain shops for £1.99! (approx $3.20)
Perfect for small outings and road trips. :)
