Oh, a hunting we will go... ...bargain hunting that is!

Tali, Micah and I visited a second hand shop yesterday. Three whole stories of pre-loved goodies to peruse. What fun!!!
I was looking for a bookcase, which I didn't find, but we did find a few other things that caught our eye - well ok mostly mine, lol. I had a good look through the vintage linen, but nothing took my fancy.
Tali found this sweet little box (2 x 2 inches).
Pink and Purple Gems and pink glazing inside.
Suits her perfectly!
These are my finds...
This dear little tin has seen better days, but it'll be great in the sewing room.
Love the basket that kitty is sitting in!
The Bensen's Toffee tin is well loved, but that's part of its charm.
The Carmichael's Chips tin is a repro,
but it'll look sweet with the rest of my collection.
When we got back to car we realized that it had a hidden secret...
inside it was a Hague's Pretzels tin...
But wait...
there's more!
Inside that was a Radford's Roasted Nuts tin.
BONUS!!!!
Happy Blogging!
