flea market finds


This is going to be brief, I've had a cold all week and now my sinuses have gone on strike on account of all the nose blowing. I am the proverbial 'bear with a sore head' and I think it best if I stay in my cave for a bit. That said i did want to share a few small thrifty wins this week. Two op shop visits and a good day at the local market     came up with a really lovely unsigned painting, a bunch of 1950's Australian pottery vases (all hand signed), a Gus McLaren goat figure and a bitchin little West German vase. I also scored two set's of wool carding brushes for $4 EACH! crazy, I know. 

On further inspection, the first of the three pottery vases has since been chipped by my delinquent son, I will now be selling HIM at next weekends Camberwell Market.......just in case anyone is interested.

For more thrifty finds pop over to visit Sophie at Her Library Adventures and Apron Thrift Girl, I bet their pottery isn't chipped...grumble, grumble.

  6. Get well soon. I sympathise on the kids thing - we're on Summer holidays and have just put our house on the market. Now trying to keep it clean and tidy for viewings with a 3 and 6 year old at home. Not easy! Shame about the pottery, they're pretty. I guess now one is 'homely' as well.

  7. Love them all! They're colour coordinated - was that intentional?
