The Mill on the FlossPosted: July 10, 2012
This weekend I went to Nuneaton to see what the charity shops had to offer. I hadn’t been to Nuneaton for about five years and it made a nice change. Before I get on to the shopping I want to share with you the interesting architectural details I noticed in the town centre.
George Eliot was born nearby and there is a statue of her in the middle of the town.
As well as interesting buildings there are also many pretty flowers and flower beds.
I went round all the charity shops I could find, there are at least a dozen so it made for a good outing.
I couldn’t resist these two pictures by Dallas Simpson to go up in my craft room. I already have one and love how kitsch they are.
These frosted glasses are pretty and a useful size to actually use, or they would make good small vases.
I got two of these glass sundae dishes, now I just need some ice cream to go in them!
The colours if these two items, glasses case and glass jar with embroidered lid, are well matched and would look good together on a dressing table, it’s a shame we don’t have room for a dressing table in our bedroom!
Four sherry glasses I don’t really need, but they were cheap and I like the simple pattern in bright colours.
I was very excited to find two duvet covers in my favourite pattern. I buy these when ever I see them as I like to use the fabric in my craft projects and worry about running out.
I really like this roll of vintage wallpaper, if I had a small enough area to cover I would be tempted to actually use it.
I really enjoyed finding all these wonderful and interesting items. I get so much enjoyment from discovering things in charity shops and knowing that my money is going to charity and the items I have bought are not being thrown away.
