Well I'm back from my hols in Wales and the Wee Man had a fantastic time. More of our Welsh Adventure at a later date. But today a quick - ish rundown of all the loot I have gathered since the last Car Boot Loot Post.
I was a bit disappointed that I didn't get to go to as many charity shops as I had hoped to on hols, but I still found some treasures during my travels.
First up a vintage Oxo cube tin. All for a mere 10p. The tin design was the winning design in the Oxo Graphic Design Award for schools and colleges in 1992. It was designed by a very talented Martin Sanders age 19 and the theme shows that OXO can be enjoyed by everyone throughout the day. (I write this as if I am knowledgable about all things Oxo tins, but really I'm only copying it from the tin!)
My favourite part of the design is the circus lion licking it's lips. I wonder if he's eyeng up the cup of Oxo or the lion tamer.
Next up some serious vintage china porn.
Four very gorgeous Johnson Brothers tea cups and saucers. I love the bright Spring colours and the lovely floral detail.
My first ever handled cake plate. It's an Old Foley one bought from a charity shop in Porthmadog for a very reasonable £1.99. The price sticker said £2.99 but the lady behind the till gave it a look and said it was only worth £1.99, so that's what I got it for. And of course I put a little donation in the collection tin at the till.
We found an attic sale in a church hall and amongst all the toot there was this fine example of a stately tea pot poking it's spout out of the chaos. It's Royal Albert Inspiration and is currently looking lovely and serene on my dresser.
And lastly a "little" something I picked up on our last day on hols. Two lovely and very heavy red enamel pots. The colour reminds me of "Keep Calm and Carry On" and I'm thinking of either stencilling the logo on to the pots or using a decal. Not sure yet. Bought for a meagre £1 each from a vintage steam train station platform.
That's my lot today. More holiday adventures to follow. I hope you all had a fabbo Easter holiday. Not sure what your weather was like, Wales was wet!
If you've enjoyed gawking at my loot, why not gawk some more at my other Car Boot Loot posts here.
