There owner of this site now has a lovely new eBay shop. You can visit it and browse various vintage and second hand items. The shop is here.
At the church jumble sale a few weeks ago, I spotted some lovely glass at the back of the bric-a-brac stall. I’ve been looking out for some glass dessert dishes for ages so a stack of them caught my eye. They had eleven – presumably two sets minus one breakage – so of course I had to buy the lot! Then I saw some more glass dishes of different designs so ended up with a whole bag full for just £2! Jumble sales are the best!
Glass dessert dishes – apparently these are Ravenhead Siesta dishes from the 1970s. I love them as they remind me of Iitala glasses like these…
More Scandi-inspired glassware purchases. I originally assumed these were dessert dishes but looking at them they look more like tealight holders though I haven’t been able to find out where they are from. These were in the £2 job lot too.
Also, and finally, I got three of these glass dessert dishes. Not entirely sure about them they are a bit too flowery for me but I like the retro style so holding onto them until I can find out more about them.
Jumble sales are the best! Even cheaper than car boots. Two of my local churches run jumble sales twice a year. I grabbed some major bargains at one a few weeks ago (pics to follow) and just saw there is another one this Saturday – can’t wait!
This is the first post about car boot sales or other related upcycling projects.
It might have an image as well like the one of this lovely raised bed made from recycled wood.
