First charity shop finds for absolutely ages! Came across this little dish which cost me 25p.
It caught my attention immediately and I thought it was modern (I'm not usually drawn to modern)! On closer inspection I discovered it was of an 1838 locomotive, designed by Terence Conran for Midwinter Stylecraft. So I thought for 25p, I'll buy it. I really like it.
When I got home and did some research I discovered that its from the 1950s. I have to say that surprised me as I thought it was much more contemporary. It seems to be one of a set of four.
My second buy of the day cost me 35p - a wonderful kitschy kiltie! Isn't he so awful he's good?
A souvenir from Dunoon, just across the water from Greenock.
Don't think I could have found two more contrasting finds.
So, in your eyes, which do you think is sublime?
