not quite vintage but I couldn't pass these by with my love of red and white polka dots!
another Vernon Ward..so kitsch it hurts! This little vintage carved plaster mirror was a pound..no bartering, just a pound!!..it was gold and very chipped, but I really like it now I've painted it white.
This was the bargain of the day, stained and stuck behind glass in a heavy oak tray, the chap gave it to me for free!!..(I'm a ace flirt!!) the tray wasn't very nice, so that's gone, this is it now washed ..(not ironed though!)and I'm going to frame it for the wall.
I collect these old signs for the garden,no sooner had I bought it, a chap wanted to by it off me..sorry matey..I know a bargain when I see one!
I was chuffed with my hoard and on heading back we spied that there was a note stuck on the windscreen of The Beast (my old truck)..
I was parked well out of the way near the exit....but that day happened to be the day the worst driver in Worcestershire was out and about and he had somehow managed to smash my front light..I was chuffed he'd had the descentsy to leave a note.. but not so chuffed when I realised the number he had given was a fake one! obviously he did it in full view of others and was going through the process of being humanly by 'leaving his details'... AAAAGGGHHHH!!!!...what an Ar.....bottom vent..he's a bottom vent..poo shute, whatever.. but you get my drift..this is a family blog.
So my thrifty finds at cheap as chips prices have turned out very expensive in the end..
