Last weekend was officially the start of the camping season for the J and P household. Camped on a lovely peaceful site in the heart of beautiful Kent countryside close to Faversham and Sittingbourne. Glorious weather, excellent company, delicious food and copious amounts of wine made for a very successful weekend.
Saturday, bypassed the cute and fashionable Whitstable (will camp there in June with other friends) and spent much of the day in Herne Bay otherwise known, apparently, as Hernia Bay on account of the droves of elderly folk who retire there! As promised, in my previous post, dragged family and friends around the charity shops. Well, this is what I got:
Beautiful bedding: everyone's favourite - a candy striped double sheet (flannelette - v snuggly and soft)for £1.30, a pretty yellow and white striped cotton double sheet for £2.50, and a peach woollen blanket with satin trimming for £1.99 (v handy for chilly nights in the old tent). Now what else......
A beautiful orange rayon scarf for 50p. Sorry, photo is not brilliant - must get to grips with this photography lark.
A brooch with wooden flowers and beads (£2):
A rather fine looking flask (£2.50):
I have to say that Mr J and P and myself are a little obsessed with flasks. We are a family of 3 and we now own a total of 8 flasks plus 2 insulated mugs. Is this a cause for concern or perfectly normal behaviour????
The piece de resistance this week has to be this glorious apron for 75p.
I thought, at first, it was a home-made creation but it's good old Marks and Spencer. I love it!
I really do enjoy seeing what other people buy on their thrifting jaunts. If you do too, take a look at Her Library Adventures and play along.
Another excellent site is Thrifty Treasure . Check out her fantastic 100th Post Giveaway. Enjoy!
