Vintage finds

We went to a couple of antiques shops on the weekend and got some nice new pictures for our living room, amongst other things…

1901-02 Autumn/Winter coat collection for gents and youths… annoying sticker in top corner that needs sugar soaping off. I negotiated a price of £25 (from £34).

Lord Meredith’s sporting balloon at Quorn (near me!) £9, plus a gravure image of a hound, £3.

Birdy plates to hang in the kitchen- £1 each!

This glass cabinet was only £28!

I got another 3 pieces of Hornsea Heirloom for my collection of 70s Hornsea Pottery for £8- a milk jug, a sugar bowl and an oil/vinegar pot, though I already have the set of two with original stoppers. The other ranges I collect are Bronte and Saffron.
