A New Purchase: Meet Percy…

A New Purchase: Meet Percy…
My new biscuit jar. Isn’t he cute? I got him at Vintage Village a couple of weekends ago but didn’t want to show you him until the bf came home off holiday. He reads my blog from time to time so I didn’t want him to see it – I just love showing stuff, it’s half the fun.
 
Anyway, back to Percy. He’s from the 1950s and still has his sealer on him so biscuits stay fresh inside. I couldn’t believe what good condition he was in and even more amazed at the price. £9! Bargainous!

I also managed to find myself an equally bargainous atomic magazine rack. I’ve been wanting one for years!

This beauty was £5.
 
I also bought a beautiful cake stand for my friend’s birthday, but that was it. Very proud of myself for getting sensible things. Yes, a penguin biscuit jar is sensible.
 
Have you found any bargains recently?
PS. T-minus 1 day until my epic 5 day weekend! Excite!

    Percy is adorable! Reminds me of the penguin in Toy Story on the top shelf, LOL xo
