Flea market finds…

I found lots of lovely things at the local op shops this week.

A lovely 50s tablecloth – gorgeous colours, don’t you think?


A brand new set of (vintage) sheets, never used. Love the pattern!

Pretty mauve and green vintage sheet.


Wow – a Carltonware foxglove dish for ….. $6!!! It has a couple of chips on the edges, but I say – who cares! It’s the only Carltonware I’ll ever be able to afford!

A (70s?) carafe with six matching glasses. I have four of these carafes now, and I use them to hold my knitting needles.

Some anodised cookware and a partial set of measuring cups.

This lovely old sheet music, $2. I adore vintage graphics, especially from this era. How perfect is the burgundy and mint on that buff coloured paper!

Don’t ask me why I bought this – I have no idea! Maybe because it’s by Mariana Hardwick . Maybe because the detail is so pretty. Maybe because it was in perfect condition. Maybe because it was only $5.50! I doubt I’ll ever be walking down the aisle again. Perhaps I’ll use it to display some pretty, pearly vintage buttons.

Visit Sophie to see what everyone else has found this week.
