Charity Shop Finds

I picked up this lovely Alfred Meakin Sunflower cake stand in the charity shop last week for £4. It matches the Sunflower side plates I bought from the same shop back in February. I wonder if they came from the same home? It's nice to think that they did.
Another embroidery hoop for 50p. 
 A vintage teddy bear pattern for 10p. I just love the packaging.
The pretty embroidered tablecloth is one I picked up at a bootsale many years ago.
Yet more buttons and some fabric flowers.
A really pretty fabric flower which I hope I can incorporate into a sewing project sometime.
I was very excited to find this lovely lace. 
This particular charity shop has a dedicated sewing section and I've picked up some lovely bits from there recently. 

I couldn't resist this pretty (crochet?) edging which has probably been cut from an embroidered tablecloth. 
Hopefully I'll be able to put it to good use after all the hard work which must have gone into making it.
Hope everyone is having an enjoyable week.
