magpie monday :: SUSIE COOPER

I spent a lot of time mooching around the town last week, the first shop I went into is called 'Utter Clutter' great name for a really sweet shop that is full to bursting of exciting goodies. I saw a lovely set of Susie Cooper plates, but as I had just walked into town, I hadn't been to the bank and had no cash on me, so I decided to call in on the way back. Sadly though by the time I had finished having a look in pretty much every shop in town, when I walked passed on the way home, it had closed :(

I had to go back into town the next day (Tuesday) and so managed to pop in and get them :)

A lovely set of 4 plates ... one large oval, and 3 smaller round ones

all for £12

they are not all in the best condition, but good enough to use!

When I got home I looked up Susie Cooper on eBay and an large oval plate like the one I got was going for £59.99 and a dinner plate like 2 of mine for £24.99 each! I am so pleased as I got all 4 for only £12.

I wouldn't have been bothered if they were not worth anything, because I think they are really pretty and will be very useful!

Happy thrifting!
