I think I've still got my 'eye' in...

Thank you for your lovely comments and best wishes.  Happily my back is feeling MUCH better and I've even made a few charity shop visits ;o)  Here's the proof.....

I found this table runner with lively silver embroidery for £2

Our beautiful daughter loves pewter goblets - these are for her 5.5" tall at 50p each.
I like the detail on the stems.

I think she may also end up with this handy gadget too £1.99 just the think to store and touch up paint scuffs.
The box was slightly battered, but the contents are complete and unused.

Spode Blue Italian 8.75" dish 1.5" deep.  It's a modern one (who cares?) Wow, just £2.

George Jones 'Abbey' pattern sandwich plate 11.5" x 6"
The back stamp dates it to about 1891 - and with it was..

Five matching 6" side plates, and the lot was only £1.95
I'm certain to find another plate to complete the set :o)

Last, but certainly not least my 'special'

This beautiful J. Heath 'Pomona' tureen 4.5"tall x 7"wide
Made at the Newfield Pottery Stoke on Trent between
1845 and 1853.  Not surprisingly there is no lid but, otherwise is excellent condition
and costing a whole £1.  I spotted it just seconds before another lady picked it up, I was willing her to put it down - as she did she commented to her husband "Ugh, that's too old".
Her loss don't you think?

Aaah, loves young dream - he's giving her flowers :o)

Best wishes to everyone!

Hi Rose

Lovely to see you back - and I hope your back is much comfier. I sympathise. What a lovely haul - I really love the blue and white china - and the prices are so good as well. You wouldn't get it for that price round here. Also love the pewter goblets, I am sure your daughter will love them.

Anyway lovely to have you back

Take care

Glad you are okay. I am always amazed at what you find in your charity shops there. Good quality and good prices. I want to come back and have a huge wander around them all. Wouldn't that be fun as there are so many.
