Hi Thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Sue and I live with my lovely husband who I will call Mr V and our nine year old daughter Miss V in a small town in South Devon. Everyone who lives here talks about it as The Village so that will be my blog name- Vintage fron the Village Also in our family are two cats, two guinea pigs some tropical fish and a pond with goldfish I have always loved making things and love pretty vintage things which I hope to sell as well to fund my passion! I am addicted to buying fabric,ribbons, buttons,wool etc and love to visit charity shops and car boot sales.I love glasses of wine, gardening, crochet (easy stuff!) and I am a big E-Bay fan ! I also love to read other people's blogs which inspired me to start my own. I look foward to hearing from you Best wishes Sue

Saucer memories !

Hello again
I am not getting much done this week, Mr V has had a day off work so I have been off on another jolly !
Today we deceided on a little trip to Kingsbridge in South Devon. Even though its not that far away, I have never been shopping there.
It was a bit like Totnes in layout but a lot of posh clothes and interiors shops which I didn't venture into.
I was impressed to see quite a few charity shops though which I certainly did venture into !
I actually found one which was a proper junky cheap charity shop for a change, not full of books only pence cheaper then Amazon !!
I got this saucer for 20p - we had this set when I was a young child. Dont know why I bought it really but I might find a cup to match one day !
We walked down to the quay and had a bowl of soup in a place called Creeks End
I got a binder of crochet patterns which I had a lovely time splitting down to sell, so I know a lot of you do crochet so I will give you the nod when I list them.

Well, I had better go and collect Miss from Brownies

Enjoy your evening

  1. Am sure my parents have the remains of a dinner set in that design in their cupboards. Seem to remember eating off that as a child.

  2. hellooo sue, lovely thrifty finds! ;0)x
    my nanny had those plates/dinner set.
    lovely memories indeedy.
    i do love the charity shops in cornwall and devon. alot better than the ones i used to go in back in Essex. But the prices have taken a sharp rise i feel...me and twinny get abit annoyed with the prices sometimes!...
    but the less well known charities and more bric'a'brac style places seem to be a treat!
    love it when you see a bargain and nearly run from the shop cos its such a steal of a price hehe, happy thrifting, kazzy x

  3. I had my sandwiches off a plate of the same design at my Mum and Dads just yesterday! I suppose that is why there is so much vintage stuff still available, as that generation were very careful.

  4. Oooh, I love Kingsbridge for shopping. Which reminds me, I haven't been for ages, must make a note to go very soon. Which charity shop was the really cheap one?

    have a lovely weekend x
