Every where I went there were things I wanted !!  Let me see if I can remember them all, as I won't get to take photos until Sunday.  I left a small or medium McSkimmings crock behind for $8.

2 x Mark Cleverly Lucow Mugs that go with my fabulous coffee pot. $1 ea
1 x Mark Cleverly Lucow Sugar Bowl and they look like new! $1
1 x Sharon Maude painted unusual coffee mug. $2
1 x Christopher Vine Elephant Plate Temuka. $1
1 x ORANGE Salt Pig and it only has part of the inside glazed in orange and I've never seen this clay before. $3
1 x Margarine with the koru under the lid .... in greens. $4
3 x Ian Smail Goblets 2 @ $4 and 1 @ $2 Ooops these were made by  Peter Shearer.
1 x No Name pattern saucer. 50c
1 x Mug that goes on the TV trays. $1
1 x Beach large mug in different colour to the one I have [I think] $1
1 Four Digit mug with no number on it $2
1 x Vitrified teacup in a pattern I don't have 50c.

That's all I can recall atm, but I think there will be more as I spent around $30 all up.

Hip Hip Hooray the crock was still there today!!!  
I'm not sure on the sizes of these crocks, perhaps Thelma can help, but this one is around 16 cm high.
I also got a Norm Parker tea caddie - hand thrown as it reminded me of Clay Craft !!
Norm was a studio potter to begin with and who knows he may have worked for Peter Beach at one time????
1 x 2 red lines hospital oval 765/8 in perfect nick.
1 x Mode big dessert bowl in a shape I haven't come across before.
1 x Mode Fruit Saucer, which you don't see very often in any pattern.
I took a photo of a Clay Craft Margarine ... an ugly blighter - too ugly to pay for!
Plus I took a photo of an Ev Pate dish ..... I always want to bring my babies home, but a photo will do this time as I made thousands of named dishes and sold them for $2 each and they wanted $3 for this one Razz

Ev, it sounds like your tea caddy may be another step towards explaining Val's two similar pots from Beach and Parker so a photo would be good.

See:

As much as I like a Clay Craft shapes I have seen a few of those margarine pots and not been at all tempted.
