I resisted the urge to buy half the shop (a small budget helped) and came away with two items.
A late 1930s Tuscan China teacup trio. Trios started at just £2! True, I don't like actual tea, but it will suit my occassional fruit tea habit nicely.
I also got this beautiful strawberry pattern two-tier cake stand. It's modern (she originally had 6 in stock!) an unmarked, but so pretty.
The hand-crochetted lace doily is also vintage, a recent find at a charity shop. It always makes me a bit sad to think how many hours somebody's grandma put into these pieces, only for them to be given away and sold for fifty pence.
