Last Charity Shop Find Of 2012 ..... Probably!

My last charity shop find of 2012 is an absolute bargain!

 
I paid £1.49 for this gorgeous H & K Tunstall Old English Needlepoint plate - can you believe that?  The charity shop was having a sale, wonder if it was because they wanted to get rid of stuff so that there would be room for everyone's unwanted Christmas prezzies!

 
 
I already have a plate in this pattern and I think that it is lovely, so was delighted to find another.

 
Love, Liz

Thanks to all of you who responded to my last post.  Looks as if embroidery and other hand crafts were indeed used as therapy for soldiers.  Interesting!

No wonder you were thrilled Liz....it's fabulous. I would love to find something similar for my dresser. I'll keep looking and when one I like turns up it will seem extra special because of the time it took to locate :0)

very sweet. I mooched around the charity shops today, but sadly didn't really feel the love, probably because I didn't find anything I wanted! plus I was trying not to spend any money and therefore would only buy something which was fabulous!! have a good new year, Heather x

You seem to have a perfect knack for finding lovely things. I think you should pop into the shop again on the 31st anyway... just in case!
Happy Hogmanay and wishing you all good things for 2013.

That is such a pretty plate! I popped in to our local hospice charity shop yesterday and stumbled on the motherload of vintage chiffon scarves and brooches!
Happy new year to you, Liz, it's been lovely getting to know you through your blog. xxxx

Beautiful, and quelle deal! I miss all the lovely bowls and plates I used to find in Canadian and UK thrift shops. In France, though, I can usually find good local pottery. Happy New Year Liz, and thanks for the wishes! xo
