Now then tat lovers! It's TOTW time, the time where you get to see the creme de la creme, the cream of the crop, the icing on the cake.. you get the picture! There was no conferring needed this week, as we had a hands down bargain of the century winner (despite Laura scoring a couple of good hauls and me not getting a look in due being sociable and staying out of charity shops ALL WEEKEND! I know, it was TOUGH, but don't worry, I pulled through unscathed)
So, some of you may know that almost a year ago I finally got the keys to a Victorian fortress, it is a massive work in progress for me and my beloved, and it has taken until this week to find the perfect dressing table for our bedroom. I had seen it on eBay with a start price of £50... a bargain enough for what it was, but I forgot to bid in time, and it ended without a buyer! My world immediately crumbled and I regretted being an idle fool for letting the curvaceous beauty slip through my fingers. And for what? I'll tell you what! A new start price of £9.99, suckeeerrrrrs! Luckily nobody else wanted the buxom old girl, and she was all mine, mine I tell you! So without further ado, here she is:
I think you'll all agree that she's pretty sassy for a seventy year old bird! Aside from her creaky drawers (oo-er!) and a few bumps and scrapes, she's in pretty good nick! Eventually I'll give her a once over the flannel and tart her up with some varnish but for now she's sitting pretty and she couldn't look better!
The moral of the story (there wasn't going to be one, but I'm feeling self important now and quite smug about this entire tale) is to be
feckless patient! If you don't press the 'bid now' button straight away, chances are you're not totally feeling it! Just sit tight and see what happens. You never know, you might end up featuring on 'Tat of the Week!', and when you do, I'll be here waiting for your eternal gratitude.
Keep your eyes peeled and your elbows out! The tat is yours!
Ta-ra for now,
