Last Sunday was the annual 50s fair at Rose Seidler House in Sydney. It’s always a fun day with lots of people getting into the spirit of the 50s by dressing up, arriving in some souped up cars and generally having a great time. This year I met up with my blogging friend Marian who travelled up from Victoria with her partner to experience some 50s magic, and of course to take a few tidbits home (well didn’t we all!).. I was so glad to meet Marian, who really got me started with blogging. We’ve been corresponding for a couple of years so it was high time we met! That’s us sitting on the rock enjoying a coffee.
We exchanged some lovely gifts – funny that we gave each other a load of vintage goodies! The lovely spotted apron with the crinoline ladies, and the 50s tablecloth are just a couple of the lovely gifts I received.
There were lots of fab 50s things to buy at the fair. I couldn’t go past the lazy susan – and doesn’t it match perfectly with the tablecloth Marian gave me? I also picked up the pink and black shopping bag and the orange, yellow, green and white shopping basket, which I love and have been using all week. I saw so many things there that took me straight back to my childhood, growing up in Beecroft, a leafy suburb of Sydney.
A few other finds this week: buttons – you can never have too many of them!, and this cute little hand-made cosy for a ‘fan’ pack of stocking darning thread. I also found the fab vintage sheet which it’s sitting on. I don’t have many in blue or purple so it’s a welcome addition to my collection.
Well I hope you had a great week. Pop over to Sophie’s for more great flea market finds!
