Perfect winter's day and I'm off to the local trash and treasure market. Here's Charlotte watching me get into my car and looking so sad I almost didn't go but I did promise to be home for lunch and she was o.k with that. More trash than treasure today, walking around markets counts as excercise for me so the day is never wasted
Could not go home empty handed, also if I don't buy SOMETHING I might be tempted to buy some of the homemade cakes that were for sale. I already have a crown identical to this one but two crowns are better than one and it was a bargain.
I try not to buy any more Royal china unless it is very unusual, the mug was another bargain and even cheaper than those tempting cakes. The mug is for the Queen's Silver Jubilee, made by Staffordshire Potteries and has-Presented by-The City of Stoke-on-Trent on the base, perhaps it was a gift to schools or groups at the time of the Jubilee.
