Thursday

Adding To My Stash ....


Although i must admit that i do
get jealous of others finding "thrifty buys " .
The vintage millenery and trims etc .
I don`t seem to do so bad myself !


Here is just a small collection of my most
recent purchases ...


A vintage bamboo magazine holder -


i presume ..




Bought for the cute material it is made from ...



An old Avon glass cream jar - which
reminds me of the Wedgewood made blue ceramics.
And a Hornsea made pottery plaque of a wren -
still with an old label on the back .






2 ceramic cups - one Holly Hobbie -
and the other of Joan Walsh Angland !!

I know these are rare and hard to come by ,
so i was pleased to find this !











Pieces of costume jewellery ....






A carrier bag of crochet / trims ....



A Waldorf stationery box ....

It may look garish to some , but i do love
the flower design on it !





On opening it ..... It is a musical box too !!
Left hand side .. Unfortunately what was meant to
go around while it played has been lost - like
a ballerina .. But it still works !!!








2 vintage material sheets ....
I can feel another bag make coming on !
Especially in the geometric design !!
Love it !!











I do enjoy the thrill of the hunt to find
such items like these .....
Somethings , you can get for a song ,
while others require some thought before you buy .
While many toss away , and think nothing of it .
I love to give them a new home ......


See you on Saturday - for my last
post before i go away on holiday !!

You've acquired quite a stash, dear Carolyn! I'd say you did alright for yourself. I hope you are enjoying your holiday. Looking forward to hearing all about it.

Isn't it just so much fun when you find such wonderful treasures like you did?!! I love thrifting and could spend all day in a thrift shop:-) I just love that vintage Avon glass cream jar...I have two big boxes full of vintage Avon bottles/jars that I'm thinking of selling on eBay one day but not sure if there's a demand for them. Will have to check it out:-) xoxo
