Magpie Monday - Stuff, stuff and more stuff

Despite loosing an hour's sleep getting up at what amounted to 5 am to take hubby to work, I had a bumper morning at the boot sale.  The sellers were out in force (but so were the buyers). Elbows at the ready I ploughed in.

First find this gorgeous large cake stand from a (regular) seller who I haven't seen over the winter, but who has now reappeared.  She goes to France to source her stock.  Love it, so pretty.  The bonus is her items are always immaculate and clean too.


Lovely hand painted cup and saucer from the same seller


Set of three beautiful Soup bowls and plates or you could use them for a large cup of steaming coffee.  Yum.


I found lots of plates yesterday, this stunning plate is Royal Worcester


Another stunning plate from the same seller, hand painted flowers on a transfer print.



Set of really pretty unmarked plates.  These again, an example of how something can sit sad and filthy in a box but can wash up a dream.


Stunning Grimwades Byzanta Ware Lustre small bowl


Pretty Side Table already repainted in Craig and Rose paint !  I thought I recognised the colour when I saw it, got talking to the seller and managed to knock £4 off the price.  I will rub it down a bit, give it a wax and think it will look much better.  Looking a bit flat at the moment but I love the shape.



Absolutely beautiful coffee set.  I might not be able to bring myself to sell this just yet.  Talking to the seller, who was Dutch, she told me her three daughter used to play with it when they played house !  All I can say is they must be amazing children, its in immaculate condition.  I regret now that I didn't also buy a pair of the authentic clogs off her too.  She had about six pairs of children's clogs in all different colours.  Argh!  Always something you regret picking up.




Pretty Colclough tea set trios


Woop! another 1950's Meakin plate to add to my now growing collection.  This one is called Covered wagon.  I love it, so as with all my other "story" plates what do you think the story is here ???


I have lots and lots more stock but haven't the time to put anymore on today.  Will do another post later in the week.  Now that the nice weather is bringing out the fairweather sellers its looks like I might have to up my bootsale budget.

One last thing today, not begging or anything but if you like my blog and think its worthy I would LOVE you to nominate my blog in the home or photography category of the MAD BLOG AWARDS  You need to pop a blog name in first along with your email and name then you can go to the second page which gives you the catagories.  Thank you so much if you take the time to vote, it means so much to me xx

  1. What I want to know is how on earth do you manage to lug all this lot around the sale with you - particularly if hubby is at work?!!

    Beautiful, beautiful all of it.

    Very jealous of that Meakin plate though, it's just like my Stag set - you don't happen to have any of that lurking about do you? x
