Charity Vintage Sale
A very sweet friend of mine kindly let me into a little secret last week.
Her friend is emigrating to Dubai shortly and was having a huge sale of her vintage furniture, crockery, glassware, linen and more, all in aid of Muscular Dystrophy.
There is nothing better than the feeling of buying something lovely and doing a good deed! For less than the price of a takeaway on a Saturday night, I bought a mini collection in itself.
I could have bought it all. All 10 plus glass cake stands, all the delicate serving plates and the hand embroidered table cloths. But the actual sale wasn't for a day, so it was only right to leave some pieces behind, for the sale goers on Saturday morning!
Within 10 minutes I had snapped up a beautiful French pastel tea set for £3, a silver cake stand and silver three tier folding stand, a couple of china serving plates and 3 etched glass plates for £1 each, a blue and white embroidered tablecloth, 2 vintage aprons for 50p each, a blue footed glass bowl for £1 and a French green glass cake stand.
I hope the sale went brilliantly on Saturday and they raised lots of money!
Did you bag any bargains this weekend? We spent the most glorious weekend in Southbourne with my in laws. A picture perfect seaside adventure. They are moving to the area at the beginning of September from Surrey and we talked about all the furniture they won't be taking with them. New little project for me over the summer - painting their traditional cast iron patio furniture set pastel colours! I'll post some pictures from the weekend later this week, but this was one of my favourites.
Doesn't the sunshine just make life feel nicer!
