No excuses, let's just say I'm a bad blogger and I will try harder in future.
So - here's a little bit of what I've thrifted lately
One of the bargains of the year so far is this 30-piece set of Old Hall Alveston cutlery by Robert Welch.
This is a true classic, winning a Design Centre Award in 1965. Coincidentally it is featured in the current (July) edition of Elle Decoration.
I found this set bagged up in a charity shop for £2. On the same shelf was a set of Ikea cutlery for £3.
This little bird is a bit of a mystery, and I would welcome any suggestions as to the manufacturer.
It does have a maker's stamp on the bottom, but my camera is not very good at close-ups.
I'm also unsure what the holes are for, if anything.
Another Bernard Buffet-style item, this time a small metal tray. £1 from the usually over-priced "Vintage" section of a local charity shop.
This is the first Whitefriars I have ever found in a charity shop.
It has a couple of tiny chips around the inner rim, but due to the way the light glows through the glass you have to look really closely to notice them.
