Big Game Hunting

I really wasn't expecting to come across anything this week just gone. What, with weddings, appointments and public holidays I was all but prepared to write it off, but I was pleasantly surprised to find Oakliegh market kicking on like an old horse and so I managed a few choice pieces after all.

Carlton ware 'Magnolia' dish ($8 buckeroos and not a single chip!)

Vintage guessing game, full of fun cryptic questions such as " Toes not found on man or beast"
the answer, potatoes. 

Royal Copenhagen miniature wall plaque of 'The Little Mermaid' in Denmark (score)!

Ceramic vase, probably East German but without a makers mark.

Vintage Dri Glo sheet set in mint condition. I'm absolutely loving the green!

not a bad collection of thrifty trophies for almost zero effort!


  1. The guessing game is fabulous and I do like that dish and the sheets and the vase and plate. Such a great haul.

  2. What amazing bargain-hunting. It's always the way isn't it? When you are looking for something you can never find it and when you're not looking treasures abound!


Thanks ever so for taking the time to say hi!
