Show & Tell.........

In spite of the monsoonal weather I actually managed some good hunting this weekend!

After a quick trip on saturday morning to Seaford,  I stoped off on my way home at the Noble Park Salvos for a quick fossick through the isles.

aperitif anyone?

great selection of vintage 35mm cameras

100 year old arts & crafts footstool, maybe?

Swedish clay dish 

The bottom two pictures are of a dish by Nittsjo from Sweden, I just love it (reminds me a lot of Dutch Gouda pottery). I also found a really lovely footstool (third image from the top), it was covered in a very fifties horsey bar-cloth fabric however, the lady behind the counter assured me it was 100 years old and made from old tin cans (hence the $90 price tag). I'm assuming it has been re-upholstered but wonder if it isn't an old arts & crafts piece?

Personally, I took home a beautiful, deep blue, floral maxi dress that looks like something a grown-up Holly Hobby might wear and some super bright vintage towels I hope to turn into bib's for the littlest pickle.

Overall, a little bonier than the last time I was there but still plenty of good stuff!

All of the items pictured above might still be in the shop so if you like them go check it out.
