Do you love a hunt through junk and charity shops or thrift stores if you are in the US?
It's the mad randomness of it I love, and a bargain.

Here's July's thrifted finds.

Tam ware 1970's soup bowl £1

Look at the difference in size of 70s soup bowls to now.
The modern white bowl was a 40p junk shop find a while ago.

Until I can refit the bathroom and install a ladder radiator,
this £1 over the radiator towel holder will do.
These sell for £24.99 in Argos, who in their right mind would pay that, it's not hand forged?

Two 1970's J&G Meakin Driftwood stoneware plates 50p each.
These are the size of modern dinner plates, maybe it was just the soup bowls which were small.

Grey wool blanket 50p
This was in the pile they consider not good enough, and class as dog blankets.
Have I got really low standards?
I have given it a thorough wash.

Hand painted bowl 80p.
I am trying to buy a new serving bowl each week as for some reason I seem to be short of them.
And I love a miss match of gorgeous serving bowls.
