Jumble sale delights

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!

11 glasses for a great price


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.
