I love a bargain



Here's the new addition to our dining room I can't tell you how excited I was with my new find! After a trip to the dentist last week whilst waiting for my lift from my lovely dad (I don't drive, having lessons soon). I had a nose in a shop I don't normally frequent in. It usually has really tacky stuff in there, it's a catalogue discount store. In the window was this farmhouse chest from The Cotswolds Company I rushed in and couldn't believe the price £45!!!!! I paid for it right away dad kindly managed to squeeze it in the back of the car and hubbie came home to find a new piece of furniture in the house! I think he thinks I'm mad of late he keeps coming home to find new things appearing in the house I knew he would like it though. Had a look on thw website it sells at £260 yippee what a bargain have no idea why it was so cheap we already have the matching tv unit in the through room so it goes really well.
The knob still hasn't turned up for my radio at least it still works. Going to ring Roberts for a replacement. Been doing a bit of sewing last week so will post some pics of that soon also got a few other finds to show you. The ladies in the charity shops will know me by name soon!

Hello Sarah
My name is Jasmine.I have been blogging for a few months now, and like you described in your first post, had never heard of "Blogs" and then decided to try because as you say there are so many lovely ladies out there with so much in common with each other!
Its a load of fun, especially if you love all things interior (and I am planning to get a sewing machine and do a course, these sites really are inspiring!)

Well - I just wanted to say hello, well done for your bargain, I love shopping over in England when I get the chance, the shops are fab, nevermind Cath Kidston shops, which I am planning on getting to one of these days!
Take care, and I hope you don't mind if I add you to my list of blogs?

I bet it was one of those "no surely not...no wait...OMG, it is!" bargain moments...or is it only me who has those? Well done - it looks fantastic!

And thankyou for further feeding my obsession with a pastel blue Roberts Radio! Have to get my hands on one!
