The Thrill of the Thrift

Part of the joy of buying vintage at markets and charity shops is discovering pieces that someone else has no use for, but that you are delighted with.The joy is doubled when you manage to negotiate a sweet deal.So I was delighted to discover Thrift-ola, an online shop full of treasures collected by Leona from her travels. She even has a 'Make me an offer Monday' scheme for newsletter subscribers, whereby you can haggle like you would at a car boot sale! E-mail with the product name & the price you'd like to pay for the item you've had your eye on, then if Leona accepts the offer she'll change the price on the website and you have the chance to snap it up for a bargain price.Current gems on the site include this 1950s typewriter, and two kitchen treasures I have my eye on; a Blackbird Pie funnel and an embroidered tablecloth.
