Flea Market Finds….

Hello, and welcome to this week’s Flea Market Finds hosted by Sophie.

I’m very fond of vintage graphics, so this weeks post is all about stuff I’ve bought because I like the packaging.

I found these cute little Golden Books at Vinnies a few days ago. They come complete with their own little vinyl record and were just 50c each.

Found this cooking aide at a local school fete, I was half expecting a free set of steak knives – it’s round about the correct vintage:

Love the packaging for this trivet, even though it’s a bit erk on one side. Looks like Betty Rubble on the cover (from the Flintstones, for all you young ones)!

A great vintage scale bought at the local aged care fete.

Also bought the ‘Spong” mincer there – just love that name,

S P O N G. I’m sure we had one of these when I was growing up in the 70’s.

And this little package of knitting goodies for a ridiculously small amount of money.

Have a great week!
