A fantastic jumble sale this week

In the summer months Jumble sales are few and far between , so when  one was advertised double the distance i am prepared to travel  i thought is it worth the travel distance and the only way i could find out is to try it so i did , Well judge for yourself , some great finds here.

This tea set is all hand painted , Its called Bingo by Coalport.




Two pay phones in the original boxes , Priced at £94.99 



I also picked up an Art Deco Bedspread that's beautiful  , I will post about this at a later date. 

Then there was just one local one this week , This was just as good













Then i forgot to show you this , It was amongst the auction buys , Its Beautiful a muslin /cheesecloth type of fabric with lost of oriental style embroidery , It needs some repair but its still a rare piece  







Things seem to be looking up financially at the moment diversifying with the market , Ebay  and Facebook sales .
 At the moment all my profit is being spent back into stock wich hopefully will reap the benefits in the long run so i am still being as frugal as ever.
 Tomorrow i will be doing my monthly shop and will post about it in my next blog post showing you along the way how i make it stretch.
