I spotted this little cabinet in my all-time-favourite local charity shop a couple of weeks ago and my heart skipped a beat.
I’d been looking for something to store some of my ever-expanding fabric stash in – and this little beauty had my name written all over it. Except… after tentatively enquiring as to it’s price, I was informed that it was already reserved.
But the nice man in the shop said it wasn’t yet paid for – and that if they didn’t come back for it by the end of the week, I could have it for a tenner.
And so… it is now mine – for £10!
A further week later, and we finally loaded it into the car yesterday and brought it home.
I’m going to give it a bit of a makeover.
It has all it’s doors and shelves, but I’ve never been a fan of teak veneer (so orange!) so, weather permitting, I’ll be out in the back garden doing a bit of sanding and painting.
Oh, and I promised to show you the other thing I bought from Dolly Mix Vintage, didn’t I?
I think it’s the nicest vintage scarf I’ve ever seen.
And it cost me £2! I’m not sure whether to wear it, make it into a cushion, frame it, or just add it to my collection…
What do you think?
I think it’s certainly been a week for bargains.
It’s funny how they just turn up when you’re not really looking for them, isn’t it?
