Magpie Monday - Charity shop finds

This weeks Magpie Monday I have some more Kitchenalia to show you that I have found in charity shops.
First Photo is some lovely 1950's bakeware that I paid £1 each for. It was love at first sight...The vibrant blue flowers are gorgeous and instantly gained my attention. I've baked many cakes in them.

The second and third photo is a pair of Johnsons bros, pareek serving bowls from the 1930's. They are so pretty and in immaculate condition. I paid £1.50 each for these.

I mainly use them during BBQ's and fill them with potato salad and rice dishes.

Next is My tea, coffee & sugar pots. They are retro 80's made by Sadler and after a bit of research I discovered Boots the chemist used to sell them. I loved them as soon as I spotted them and was so chuffed to get them for £2 for the whole set.

A few weeks after buying the tea and coffee pots I spotted a matching Tea pot in another charity shop. I was so thrilled and when I saw it sitting all alone on a top shelf I thought my heart was about to burst. I paid £4 for it and Love, love, love it!

Pop over To Me and My shadow to see what lovely second hand treasures everyone else has found.


  1. How funny to find the matching teapot. Happily reunited :0)

    I love your serving bowls, they are so pretty.

    Thanks for linking up again xx

  2. your bowls are lovely, food must look so appealing served from them. :)

  3. Bless, I have a memory of those cat jars, I can't quite grasp it, where I know them from. It will come to me at in the morning ! What a lovely selection this week xx

  4. Beautiful Mama S. I've just started working in a charity shop so I'll be on the hunt for bargains!

    p.s. Am going to add your blog badge to my blog love page if that's okay?

  5. I actually remember that range in Boots (they don't even have a cookware section anymore do they?)
    Love those pretty big bowls and glad they get some use too - it's a shame when things are stashed away all the time!

  6. I like a good set of kitchenalia and yours is fabulous especially the serving bowls - gorgeous. I'm off to have a good rummage round your blog!

  7. Loving the containers and teapot especially as I am now a cat convert. Wanting some new ones so may have to go to the charity shops again in search of something like you got but different so I can share it.
