Meet Percy...

My new biscuit jar. Isn't he cute? I got him at Vintage Village a couple of weekends ago but didn't want to show you him until the bf came home off holiday. He reads my blog from time to time so I didn't want him to see it - I just love showing stuff, it's half the fun.

Anyway, back to Percy. He's from the 1950s and still has his sealer on him so biscuits stay fresh inside. I couldn't believe what good condition he was in and even more amazed at the price. £9! Bargainous!

I also managed to find myself an equally bargainous atomic magazine rack. I've been wanting one for years!

This beauty was £5.

I also bought a beautiful cake stand for my friend's birthday, but that was it. Very proud of myself for getting sensible things. Yes, a penguin biscuit jar is sensible.

Have you found any bargains recently?

PS. T-minus 1 day until my epic 5 day weekend! Excite!
