I was walking through Leicester yesterday en route to the fabric shop [details will follow later] when I spotted a pile of Hornsea tea plates in a charity shop. They were mostly the Contrast pattern
But two of them were Cornrose- our wedding present china, and out of production for years. How much? I asked the lady.
She looked at her list and said “tea plates, 10p each” so I gave her 50p and happily put the pair of plates in my bag. That’s one tenth of the price on eBay for a pair [inc. postage]
It doesn’t take much to put a smile on my face!
