Morning everyone! How goes it in the land of thrift? I've had a pretty good week myself.
First up is this beautiful tin! It joins its cake equivalent that I bought off of eBay ages ago. I found this in a junk/vintage shop called This Shop Rocks on Brick Lane. A lot of the items are rather pricey, but this was only £3. I try to get there at least once a week and was thrilled to find this beautiful tin.
This Schott Mainz - Jenaer Glass bowl took all of my bargining powers to get. I found it at Spittlfields Market and the seller wanted £9. I felt like that was nuts so I put it down and walked away. I couldn't stop thinking about it though and after picking up my lunch I headed back. I managed to get him down to £5. He said no at first, but I pointed out that the decoration had a bit of damage and he caved. At first I thought that Schott Mainz was the German version of Pyrex, but after a bit of research I learned that its the company that invented the type of glass Pyrex is made of. I think this is so pretty and was an amazing addition to my collection.
