lost property finds

What a lovely week I had, catching up with family and exploring a new part of Cornwall. And the most amazing weather!

And, the big news is I've signed up to have a table at a vintage fair next month. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time, and finally took the leap. You will find me at Victoria Hall in Oundle, Northamptonshire, on Sunday 27th November, from 11am to 3pm. Stop by and say hello!

Here are some highlights from my last few thrifting trips, some of which will be appearing at the vintage fair.


A fab old box - the kind you see a lot on American blogs, but I've never come across one before.


Victory jigsaw puzzle, coasters, a little brass cat and a sweet pyrex-ish mug.

Souvenir cup and saucer from Lynmouth, and a plate from Lynton (both in Devon).

Fun plaid tie, and a souvenir scarf from London. And a big pile of vintage fabrics, one of which is serving as a backdrop to the photos.
What have you found recently?

I love that tie and the London scarf. Nice finds!

I'm willing to bet that's a Fire King mug. I always keep an eye out for both Fire King and Pyrex!

(I love the Kraft box, too!)

I love the vintage souvenir scarf. I have tried to collect them from some of the places that I have been.
