Comic book capers now just £3 a pop!

I’m a big fan of Miss Kim Lawler, fellow cat lover and creative captain of Finest Imaginary. Not only does she design her own jewellery, accessories, stationery and homewares she also crafts websites. Now that’s one sassy momma! This weekend she’ll be packing up her wares and heading to London’s Renegade Craft Fair toting her cool polar collection and kitty cat coasters amongst other things but today she revealed a super sale that got Thrift-ola Towers a little hot under our peter pan collar… Kim has decided to sell off hundreds of pieces of old stock for just £3 a pop. Ooooh-ahhhh. Designs include: Grr/arg, science beakers, flasks and cylinders, apples, zombies, cowboys, ninjas, wow/pow and monocle man necklaces. Postage is 90p.

Quick, hurry and make great haste over to the FI Facebook page to snap this deal up pronto!

A beautiful sewing box magazine rack sold for £15.

A beautiful sewing box magazine rack sold for £15.

Thrift-ola is a considered collection of midcentury to modern, colourful ‘n fun objects and wares. I do however, from time to time, unearth a variety of other vintage treats that catch my eye yet don’t quite fit in with Thrift-ola’s ethos. This exciting bunch of goods will be bundled up into a series of flash sales hosted on Twitter. Last week I held a furniture sale which included this incredibly unique sewing box come magazine rack contraption I found at a flea market in France. Cute, huh?

I do of course also partake in witty banter, links to jumble sales, vintage fairs and the like and I’m always on the hunt for recommendations which I’ll RT coz sharing is caring!

Here I am – Look forward to meeting you…
