It might be a Christmas Present..................


..........or I could keep it.



 This was on the shelf in the charity shop when I went in to do my stint last week.  I picked it up, dusted underneath and then decided not to put it back on the shelf and it came home with me. With volunteers 20% discount it was 80p so didn't break the bank.
I was thinking that with some cheese or biscuits it could make a present but maybe I'll keep it. I was very good and moved two rarely used items from the dining room cupboard into the car-boot box under the stairs..........one in and two out is supposed to be my plan this year.

  2. It's lovely. I'd be sorely tempted to keep it, I think.

  3. That is a nice plate, it would make a lovely gift in a mini hamper with some homemade pickles and a few bits of cheese. But as Joy says I would be tempted to keep as well, difficult one.

  4. There would be no question in my mind, I would definitely keep it. That is the kind of thing I look out for if and when I go to charity shops/car boot sales. If you decide to get rid of it point it in the direction of Devon please.

  5. Hard choice - but a good swap for the items you have removed to the Boot box.

  6. No question-keep it! Use and enjoy it with bread, cheese and some chutney or fruit. Lovely find!

  7. A lovely present to yourself. When I worked at a charity shop I brought lots of things I would never would have seen. When I first started at the charity shop (nearly 30 years ago) our charity only had the shop for 1 week in a month, another charity would have it for a week and we had to keep everything for the next month, it was great fun but now it's big business, manageress employed now. In them days we just helped each other and took it in turns to serve we put the money into somebody's house and it was banked at the end of the week. I was hard work to put everything into the shop for just a week but it was lots of fun. In all I worked there for 30 years almost and now we have a hospice to be proud of.

    1. Goodness, that must have been such hard work. We still need lots more helpers as at the moment the paid manager is having to work on her own quite a lot and close up for lunchtime and only open 5 days instead of 6
