A modern 'Past Times' jar standing 8" tall was £1.75. Surprisingly the colour caught my eye!

Here's some of my others displayed on my cane 'bus stops' (as hubby christened them years ago!) in the conservatory.
They've been collected over the last 15 years or so.
I doubt that any one of them cost me more than £5.
Discovered at a boot sale, my favourite
it cost £1, and stands 13" tall and I love it!
The 'pumpkin' shelf, a closer look at the biggest
This cost me £2. Standing 9" tall, the smallest pumpkin stands only 3" tall.
Another favourite, from memory cost £2.50 (Car boot sale)
Standing 9" high.
There HAD to be a few cats sneaking in!
The tallest jar is 8" high.
The dragon jar on the left is an oil burner my dear daughter bought me years ago :o) She knows me SO well...:o)
The glass butterfly was a 50p find from a charity shop, it's 'sprung' and quite difficult to place.
(The frogs are part of another collection)
Another close look,
This one is 6.5" high, the smallest on this shelf is 2.5" high.
Now, I'll let you into a 'trade' secret, I have been known to pick up a jar and drop the lid :o(
but the cure is - I now stick the lids on with blue tack, no more broken lids :o)
Well, that concludes showing (some of) this part of my collection. I'll have to show you another collection soon!
(You may have noticed a colour theme though LOL)
See you all soon, keep well.
