I love Magpie Monday where bloggers celebrate bargains they have acquired from charity shops, freegle, ebay, netmums, family and friends etc.
I am always shopping for second-hand finds so often wonder what to feature on Magpie Monday. Should I post all the artwork I have found? The books? The quirky? The funny? The embarrassing?
This week, I have decided to feature two recent finds.
At Christmas, I was mortified when I served a frankly superb Christmas dinner but on all manner of mismatched crockery. I determined then that I would buy a dinner service and would know the right one when I found it.
I picked one up a couple of months ago. Classical enough to not be too on trend but to last a lifetime. Lots of bits too including plates, cups, tureen, teapot, sandwich plates, napkin rings, butter dish, salt and pepper pots. Buying this makes me feel almost like a grown-up!
Of course, I can always find something else that I "need" and if you have the dinner service, you need a dresser to display it on, right?
So I was very happy to pick up a dresser via Netmums!
Now, here is the quiz, how much in total did I pay for this lot? Leave me a comment with your guess and I will reveal all next week.
