OUT OF THE NEIGHBOURS SKIP!
Yes, I admit thrifting has reached a new low and in Northern Ireland I have become what is commonly know as a 'BIN HOKER'. I prefer to think of it as saving these things from a future in landfill, that would be wrong SO WRONG!! Also I am confused as to why this 'good stuff' has been thrown in the skip in the first place?? Why has it not gone to charity? Anyway.... let me tell you about my treasure finding adventures this week....
Out for a walk on Monday night, spotted that a house round the corner from where we live had a skip *eyes light up* I've always loved this house, it's a three storey, red brick town house, that just looks like it's filled with amazing stuff and if the skip outside it was anything to go by it is....or was!
Next night, out for a run, ran past the skip, quick peek inside, spied a mug.....out of my reach! NOOO! I had to think of something, so as I ran through the park and little brain ticking over with ideas how to get it out I stumbled on a stick with a hook style branch *Squeals* PERFECT, Mother Nature aiding me! Heading back to the skip with my trusty hook stick in hand I looked like a girl how'd lost her dog...Nothing to see here....One swoop of the stick, hooked under the handle, mug brought to safety, mission complete. Another Meakin pottery find and once it was washed you'd never know that it had been in the skip!
In other thrifting news a day trip yesterday with my sister was very fruitful, I bought so much stuff FOR THE STALL and a few bits for me!!!! We had a brilliant day, starting with the car boot sale, then around loads of charity shops...
brown bag collection the perfect size for my stay away trip with work and a steal for £2!
A souvenir of the Giant's Causeway made from Ivorex and the date 1st June 1956 carved on the back.
On the thrifting front I have to say It's been a great week! Hope you've been as lucky, Looking forward to having a peek at what you've all found, head over to Sophie at Her Library Adventures for her Flea Market Finds link up.
I'm off to bonny Scotland for work tomorrow, have a great week y'all xxxx
