Couldn't stop myself from entering the charity shops today there is a area in Manchester where they just hand over vintage treasure to charity shops they just turf out some incredible pieces. I had a little think to myself and have come to the conclusion that woman of my grandma's generation used tea sets, silver wear, cake stands ect everyday it wasn't a case of an event they just did everything in style. I remember my nan doing a great spread lunch and tea time she would have everything set out and made a real effort to dress the table with everything and anything. I came to the conclusion that yes its time that most woman's possessions are being taken to charity shops due to deceased or change of home, my nan passed away a few years ago and bless her she did very well at 90 years of age. I like to think that I am who I am because of her and share a little piece of her passion in everything I do, there isn't many 32 year old's that I know of having a panic attack over a tea set in the middle of a charity shop. Maybe one day when we are over the hill they will be dusting off Dyson Hoovers and George Foreman Grills. So everything that we are drawn too in a charity shop has a story behind it a sentimental value to that person, but we chose to love it all over again. This is what I picked up today.
Glass cake stand "Yes another but we wont discuss that" £3.00 slight chip on the side.
Silver plated Cake Server
I used Aquafresh to bring this tarnished beauty back to life and it worked.
After a good scrub, buff and polish these two scrubbed up very well. Now where on the high-street
would you find a glass cake stand and a silver plated server for a total of £7.00?.
I hope you all have a great Sunday Folks.
