lost property finds

It's been a fun couple of weeks thrifting. I've been exploring some new shops and car boot sales, and it's paid off. I've even braved another couple of jumble sales! Here's some highlights:

A set of small Pyrex bowls, a pretty print and cute little jug - all will be appearing at the vintage fair next month.


I love these 1950s glasses.


You don't often find vintage teapots in decent shape, but this one is in excellent condition.


And I've wanted one of these string dispensers for ages, but have only come across a pricy version in an antiques shop. This chap was 50p at the car boot sale. The handing bit on the back is broken, but he'll look great sat on my shelf.

What did you find?

I wish those pyrex bowls, custard cups I think, were available in North America. I have only seen them on UK sites. Love the 50s glasses too! I have never seen such a string dispenser here...something more to put on my radar.
