More charity shop goodies :)

When I went to buy the charity tea cosies from White Stuff for NWATCOYHD I used it as an opportunity to browse the charity shops :) I went to Ilkley first but White Stuff didn't have any so I had to go to Harrogate!

Pretty flour sifter :) I doubt it will get used but it will look good on the mantle in my kitchen!

A brand new travel journal from Paperchase but I paid £1.50! It has space for photographs and bits of paper as well as copious notes.

2 of these cool plates for £1.50 each. The 'food' has numbers on it and on the back it tells you what it represents - this is meat of the day with chips and peas :)

And the sweetest doggie dachshund blackboard! The girls have claimed him as theirs at the moment but he might accompany me to fairs to shout about my wares!

And these little guys came from a shop in Skipton - I spotted the middle one first for 50p and then his friends said they wanted to come home too! For 75p each I couldn't say no!

P.S. I am going to be joining in with Blogtoberfest again this year - posting something every day for the whole month :) It'll be challenging but I've planned put some posts so hopefully I can do it! If you are going to join in too then let me know :)

Hi swirlyarts, what terrific finds!
Thanks for being a part of Blogtoberfest, hosted by Cathy aka {tinniegirl} last year. Thought you might be interested to know that we're running it again in 2012. You can find all the info at:
And we're kicking off this Monday! Would love to see you there.

Loving the blackboard! I loved doing Blogtoberfest last year, but don't think it will be happening over at my blog this year. I might just try to do a few extra posts instead. I'll look forward to reading all yours though :)

Excellent finds. I do like the dachshund board.
