Bargain Shopping Day

yesterday I had to pop to B&Q for some more paint and thought I would have a little look round the shops as well, it has to be done!!! Well I am so glad I did, I went in and out of a few charity shops and nothing to be had, so last, and certainly not least I popped to the local hospice shop and found the bargain of the week (possibly even the year really) A gorgeous embroidered tablecloth, its so pretty all floral and summery, for the grand price of........25p!!!!! what a bargain.



It has a tiny stain on it that doesn't seem to want to go, but its not very noticable, and I am sure once its been on the line in the sun a few more hours it will bleach out. I also got a pretty pink floral pillowcase for 25p and a crochet doily for........ yup.... 25p, the pillowcase will be used when I do gracies patchwork quilt and the doily is for my shelves which have been started, just waiting for coat 2 to dry to see if I need to do another one, pics will follow when finished.

Wow, wow, and triple wow. That would fetch much more (and I'm talking probably £9.99) in the charidee shops around me. Good for you - really pleased you found such nargains.
Lubs ya. Have a fab day. Glad you have updated, you slow coach.

Beautiful tablecloth, lucky you only 25p. I have lots of these and have never managed to get any in a charity shop anywhere near as cheap as that!

I've never thought about sun bleaching stains out. I guess you are right. My mom would have done it that way years ago, maybe with a bit of lemon juice on the stain.

Hi Trish, thanks for your message!
I love your new tablecloth and vintage goodies,they go for silly prices in our charity shops,it's great when you find what I'd call a 'proper' bargain like yours!

Well done, Trixielips, that cloths such a Nargain. lol.

I love the tip about stains, I have lots of tablecloths with little stains on them, so may have a go at bleaching them in the sun.
