Yard Sale Heaven

Today Dave and I went to a vintage yard sale, house clearance which was an absolute Aladdin's cave of wonders.
A big thanks to the lovely Rachael who set up Made In Newcastle for inviting us to such a fab sale. We arrived to find two rooms packed full of awesome vintage finds. 20 years worth of charity shop hunts has done her proud. No surprise then that at 10.30 this morning, 1/2 hour before the sale opening a queue of people had formed outside to grab a bargain... and i mean a bargain.

Now i'm sorry if this makes you jealous but along with a vast amount of ace vintage fabric purchased for a mere £1, I also acquired this beautiful set of Studio Meakin crockery for, wait for it................£3!!! WOOO HOOO! I think you can tell i'm a little bit pleased :D

You can expect to find this crockery popping up in many a product photo in the future.
