Obviously I couldn't leave empty handed so when we saw this set of tables, which matches another round version I already have, I couldn't resist. They were £30, which is usually way over my charity shop limit, but my friend had seen just one of the fold down tables at a local antiques centre for £25, I thought they were probably worth it.So I took my tables and we arranged for Sarah's new furniture to be delivered. However on the way home I couldn't stop thinking about a small kitchen dresser I'd seen. So, being the worrier that I am, I phoned the charity shop as soon as I got home and asked her to save it for me and I'd pop back later to pay for it. This was the little beauty:When I went in to pay for it, I was glad I'd phoned as the lady said there was someone wanting to buy it as soon as she got off the phone. For £30, I am very glad I phoned! I don't actually have anywhere for it yet as my house is currently in, what can only be described as a state! So I added it to Sarah's delivery and she kindly offered to look after it in her garage until my kitchen is ready. Also when I went in to pay for it, I bought this lovely, hand embroidered table cloth for £1. So having waited patiently for our delivery I thought I'd show you some snaps of them in situ. The extreemly accurate measuring system of a crooklock and two picture frames obviously works as the sideboard fits perfectly:
And the bookcase looks well at home next to Sarah's original 1950s table and chairs (incidentally, from the same charity shop!) and full of sylvac face pots:
Unfortunately my kitchen cabinet will have to live in Sarah's garage for a little while, but I will post picture when it has found a home:But the tables are in their tables are happy in their new place:And to follow on from a charity shop blog a while ago, I managed to replace the missing egg cup by finding a matching one on ebay!
So that's it for now, but I don't think you will be waiting long for the next one!
