My finds...

3 June 2012

For ages I've been meaning to pop in to a little store we have here open on Saturdays...
All money raised goes to Kids with Cancer charity.... such a worthy cause.
It was like a little treasure trove.... I spent quite some time browsing and stacking up a pile on the counter.

Here are my goods...
a 1974 Guinness Book of Records to add to Brents growing collection. 
a little stack of Johnson plates
the sweetest little cosmetic bag
and a navy striped floral pillow case

The plates are a mix of florals..... and will blend in nicely with the ones I already have.

The yellow ones are my faves...

...and this cosmetic bag is so cute.... and practical too I might add!
Can you believe....50cents!!

....and on the inside....lots of elasticated pockets to hold everything nicely...
I swear I had one like this as a child....perhaps you can recall Mum?...Did I ?

So they were my finds this week..... I'm a happy Mardi!

Linking up with Her Library Adventures - Flea Market Finds this week.


  1. Lovely treasures Mardi... and a trip down memory lane as well... the plates with the orange and brown flowers are the same as the very first dinner set we had when we got married.... many moons
    and the cosmetic bag is definitely cute...
