Charity Shop Bargain Competition!

Good afternoon

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.  I have been catching up with the housework and having a good sort out.  Chris took a load to the tip yesterday morning and then 6 bags to the charity shop in the afternoon.  I can't believe how much stuff we have hoarded in the 4 years we have lived here!  This afternoon we are going to make a space in the garage so I can have a cabinet (this one) for craft storage because it is slowly taking over the house lol!

Last Sunday when I was shopping in town with Chloe I spotted some rubber stamps in the window of one of the charity shops but unfortunately it was closed.  Anyway the next day after taking the children to school I decided to have a look and picked up a couple from the window display.  When I went to pay the lady in the shop asked if I would like to look through the other boxes of stamps that had been donated.  Well as you can imagine I wasn't going to say no lol! There must have been over 200 stamps inc Penny Black, Hero Arts!  This is what I came home with for the princely sum of £16 ... bargain!. 

They still had the original prices on them and I thought for a little bit of fun I would run a little competition.  Can you guess how much the above stamps would have cost new?  I will send the person whose guess is the closest some crafting goodies :-)

Catch up with you all on Tuesday with my card for the Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge.

What fun, and what a lucky find too, my guess is around the £68 mark give or take a few pennies as I'm guessing the flower fairies are the larger stamps if they arent then around £55, is that cheating 2 guesses?

Hi Lisa Im sure they would have been quite expensive when they were new as the Flower Fairy ones were about £9.each for a start, but they are gorgeous and well done. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxx

What a find! Wish I had charity shops like that nearby! I'd have to guess at about £62, which if it were that, makes it a pretty good buy you had!
