A thrifting we will go…

11 Jan

So tomorrow’s post should be the making of the infamous suit (I’m learning just how secretive and sneaky my sis and OH can be!) but for today I thought I would show you my favourite Xmas find.

Now me and my sis love going thrifting – so Xmas is a perfect excuse to take a day, just the two of us, and go explore our favourite places for some abandoned treasures (and potential presents!). Here’s a few pics of us hard at work…

And here’s our favourite find, a vintage Cadburys Roses tin… isn’t it pretty? (We didn’t actually find it in the snow I have to add – I just thought it looked pretty to take the pics there!)

    I’m currently munching through a tin of Roses and wishing the modern tin was as pretty as the old one.

      Hey Red Boots… the shops are in the West End of Glasgow… my fav place for junk shopping – if you need a list of places just let me know 🙂

    The tin is lovely – I’m after a Singer just like the one in your pic! My one’s sadly bitten the dust 😦

      Hey Rebekah, not in Edinburgh, but there’s some good junk shops in the Causewayside in Edinburgh that are worth checking out (some are pricey though!)
