Flea Market Finds

What a great week’s op shopping it’s been. I found this lovely old grinder at the Salvo’s shop near my work. Love the yellow colour! I went to visit my mum in hospital, and on the way back to work I thought “I’ll just pop in to Vinnies before I go back” – so glad I did. I could not believe it when I spied these on the shelf! An almost perfect set of 1950s canisters! They’ll be storing something in my overcrowded sewing room.

I think I hit the motherlode when I looked for vintage sheets for this week’s vintage sheet fat quarter swap. Here’s a sneak preview:

Hope you all had a great week. Looking forward to some other great flea market finds at Sophies’s!
