This Weeks Finds...Blogtoberfest Day 15

I went on a road trip down to Invercargill in the weekend to pick up my daughter who was staying at her grandparents and managed to get quite a lot of op-shopping in on the way there....happy times...



A silver candlestick...








plates for cake stands...





I have the cup and saucer of this set (tucked away in a box somewhere) so was stoked to get this Homemaker dinner plate, even if it does have a small chip...




knitting pattern books for when I start knitting again...










fantastic illustrations in this 1950's childrens book...






and again in this book from Lois Lenski ...






a cream coloured mohair shawl...


strange 1970's plastic mounted lions head with real fur (rabbit?) mane, about 10cm tall....



I love this vinatge wooden coat hanger from a long gone tailors in Dunedin that operated between 1920-1975.

I've linked with Her Library Adventures and Apron Thrift Girl so go check out all the other goodies...

  2. Love the retro graphics on the Homemaker plate. I'm always drawn to the children's books myself. You found some really neat ones.
