Just posting some pictures of our newest vintage piece of loveliness: a cocktail cabinet!
My husband and I went for a mooch around Leigh Broadway on Saturday and saw this in the window of the Sue Ryder charity shop. It was a bargain and we had to have it. I say it was a bargain, as a quick Googly-type search brings up cabinets for hundreds of pounds... this was £45.
When we went to collect it the next day, it didn't fit in the car. We CARRIED it home. CARRIED it, I tell you! A ten minute walk home took 40 minutes. Which, thinking about it, isn't bad actually. My arms are still aching now though.
|We're on the look our for vintage cocktail ware now.|
There is a light here but the lead/plug are vintage - and dangerous - too, so we are looking to get that updated.
|More storage for my vintage medical/science books.|
This will be the third large item of furniture we've bought from Sue Ryder. Here are some of our other charity shop furniture bargains.
|A useful small book case in the back bedroom.|
|This has to be one of our best finds at Sue Ryder.|
My husband and I swear by second hand/vintage furniture. We both agree it's well made, sturdy, beautiful and generally cheaper. (I'm sure I'm preaching to the converted!)
We don't have a specific style/era of furniture throughout our home, or even in each room. It's total eclectic, mismatch galore.
Thanks for looking at my poorly taken photos.
