A Very Belated "This Weeks Finds"!

I'm a bit late with my "show and tell" this week as we've come up to Wellington to spend Xmas with my family. Of course, because it's Xmas all the op shops are closed but I have managed to find a few second hand shops up here that have been open this week. Buttons and birds are becoming a bit of a theme for me at the moment....


Pretty Japanese bird figures... 


2 beautiful dinner plates... 


and some more awesome vintage buttons! I especially like the little dog face bakelite one...yum.

Once again, I've linked up with Apron Thrift Girl so go check it out!

New Stockist...

Well it's nearly the end of another year! This New Years I'm going to make a list of things I'd like to acheive for the coming year (I intend to do it every year but always forget!) If I publish my list maybe I'll actually get some of the things crossed off!
Anyway, I've got a new stockist in New Plymouth - Kina NZ Design + Art Space so if you're up that way go and have a look.

Merry Xmas and all that shizz.....

Ombrellos Xmas Market

I had a great time at the market last Thursday - sales went well and the people were friendly. Looking froward to doing it all again this Thursday so feverishly making new stock.

To market, to market....

Tomorrow I'm taking part in a market held in a local cafe in Dunedin. It's a fantastic venue with a leafy courtyard which will be filled with great gifts, great food and great people! Come along...
