I was starting to have serious withdrawals of the Vintage Shopping kind; I hadn't been for ages!
Sometimes my car just heads in the direction of my local op shops.. as though it's on some kind of crazy auto pilot!
This is what happened on Tuesday, I had dropped the kiddies to school, it was raining and I was headed to do the grocery shopping, when before I knew it my car was making a beeline to some local op shops. I was but a mere passenger ;)
I was particularly on the lookout this time for some vintage fabrics... but like a box of chocolates you never know what you're gonna get!
Here's my loot...
A bunch of gorgeous vintage doilies.
A lime green chenille blanket.
A perfect Vintage tray (Made in Australia, Adelaide. I love Adelaide, but that's a story for another day)
A chunky wooden lamp with a wicker shade.
I love lamp and trays, don't know why, they just make me happy :)
Two ceramic turquoise bowls with new stickers on them.
A pair of silver candle sticks.
An old wooden hinged card box.
A large wicker laundry basket.
A carved wooden tray.
An Extra large magazine holder...
perfect for giant mags (huh?)...
or perfect for fabric storage :)
Some stripey and polka dot fabric.
And a partridge in a pear tree ;)
I have a bunch of fun sewing (read about my new BBF here ;) and upcycing projects planned for some of this loot, and some of it is perfect just the way it is.
Have you found any vintage treasures recently?
