Many of you lovelies will know I am slowly overhauling my house, so it’s not unusual to find me rummaging in charity shops or scouring freecycle in the hope of finding gems. Today, by total happy-accident I found some fabulous piece that I am more than a little excited about sharing with you! Picture the scene: It was tipping it down, the wind was at blizzard heights and I needed to take shelter. I launched myself into the nearest shop and bob is your freaking uncle, I found this treasure trove.
I’m always on the look out for better ways to store my toiletries so when I answered the call from these ‘Lotions’ and ‘Potions’ boxes, I couldn’t be happier. The smaller ‘Potions’ box was £3.99 and the larger ‘Lotions’ box was £5.99.Then, as the sales gods looked down on me, I saw a Buy One Get One Free sign above these beauties:
Each piece of ‘shabby chic’ or ‘reto’ glassware was just £2 each and on BOGOF which made my total for everything you see in this post, under £14. I practically skipped home (gently with the glass in hand). I plan on using the perfume style bottles for display on my dressing table that I made over (see DIY post here) and either displaying or using the large glass bottles in the summer for my homemade concoctions. I found all of these delights in a franchise of Store Twenty One (utterly disappointing website here). My local store is actually called QS.
So, what do you think of my sales finds?
