I had been hoping to do another Taste-tea Tuesday post today but I’ve been having a busy week and haven’t had a chance to put one together despite trying a couple of new teas. So for now, I thought that I’d share some charity shop finds from earlier today.
After work, I popped into a few local charity shops just before they closed. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, apart from vintage china of course! I didn’t spot any tea sets that I liked but I did find two items that I’m really pleased with. The first is this set of vintage Christmas baubles in a slightly battered box. I think they’re vintage because they look old and the red ones say ‘Czechoslovakia’ on them, which means that they’re at least twenty years old.
My second purchase was this cut glass lidded jar, which I think looks quite old too. I’d been on the lookout for one of these to store cotton wool buds. I like the way the light filters through the glass and think that it will look good on the bathroom windowsill.
There were a couple of other things that I almost bought such as a flowered cake tin (which I decided was a little too battered) but I managed to restrain myself! I enjoyed my little charity shop expedition and hope to be back soon to see what more is on offer in a couple of weeks.
