What a Bargain!

Got an absolutely brilliant bargain this week!


These four lovely little boxed napkins were just 20p! 

Love the label!
I had noticed them a few weeks ago in a charity shop priced at £2.50.  I admired them, but thought that they were overpriced.



Then I just happened to be passing the shop and went in for a wee look!  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the price tag - 20p.  Thought there must have been a mistake and that it was perhaps a label from another item which has transferred to the box.



I pretended to look at something else while eyeing the napkins - didn't want to be disappointed.  But the little label looked firmly attached and there were a few other cheaply priced items near them.


My heart beat a little faster ..... I swooped ..... and they were MINE!


Hope you got some brilliant bargains this week.

Love, Liz

Love it when you find things still in the little old boxes. Those napkins must have been treasured and deemed too good to use! Great stuff!

I saw some almost identical ones to those in an antique shop the other day,and they were a lot more than that! Enjoy using your lovely napkins.

They are delightful. Another one who collects napkins. I've got a drawer full. Not as pretty as yours though.
