This Weeks Finds....

Op shopping in Invercargill was great - I particularly liked the tip shop and the Hospice shop. By mid afternoon I'd had enough though....


Here's what I found...


The little "Hiawatha" is a salt shaker, love the little deer bookend...


I have soooo many of these little pictures now - it's about time I used them!


Oh YES! More of these little faces.....



Hmmm...The top of a coctail mixer. I've had one of these before and gave it to a friend that had a bar. I thought this would fit one of the large cocktail mix glasses that I had but alas it wasn't to be. Now I'll have to find the bottom half....urghhh..


another "Swift Whip"...






more candles...



















I now have 2 small drawers full of playing cards...






a beautiful tapestry...









Linked up with Her Library Adventures and Apron Thrift Girl for more thrifty goodness!

    1. I think I was a bit spoilt, eh! The problem is that as I'm not a re-seller my house is rapidly filling up and I need to put the brakes on sometimes.

  4. Wow, I had to look at this about 3 times! Such amazing finds. I love the fabric, the colourful sewing needles and the vintage cards. The white plate with yellow roses is fab too :)

  6. Treasuring hunting is so much fun, especially when the shops are filled with lovely vintage goodness. Your treasures are wonderful, my favorites are the patterns and instruction books, but like everything you found this week.

    1. Thanks! I think I'd be in trouble with the mister if I brought this much home each week!
