Welcome to another VTT hosted by Coloradolady!
So yesterday I took a little drive up the road from work and found a collectibles store that I haven’t visited in ages. It mostly sold old books, but there were a few other bits and pieces hiding around the place. Like these:
My mum had a set of these back in the 1960’s (I guess everybody’s mum did!). Unfortunately there’s only one lid, so now I’m 0n the lookout for spare lids! These great canisters are Nally ware, a company that made moulded phenol/formaldehyde plastic (nasty, nasty stuff!!) in Sydney c. 1923 – 1942.
And they also match my vintage buttons:
Sitting right next to them on the shelf I found these:
Two fabulous art deco style canisters made by Bristol, again in cream and red – don’t you just love those colours together! Two canisters, four lids. The extra lids don’t fit the other canisters. So now I’m looking for someone who needs lids for their Bristol canisters.
The set of bakelite measuring cups in the foreground were another find from a few weeks ago. Each one a different colour, and they all nest together!
And the local church fete last weekend had this for $1.
I know the box is broken, but there are so many needles inside, including the thinnest needles I’ve ever seen, less than 2mm.
Needless to say they have all found a new home at my place!
