This Weeks Finds...

I hope you've all had some good finds this week!



Cane covered coat hangers...yum..


I'm planning on replacing all the light fittings in my house back to the original deco style so these are just what I need.





Detail of a roll of 60's wrapping paper...


fringing....









tons of fabric!




and plates for cake stands.

What did you find?

    1. Thanks, Liz. I've actually done some sewing this week so I feel justified buying fabric!

  2. WOW! Loads of great finds, sounds like a great idea replacing all of the light fittings back to the original! It will look fabulous when it is complete. I spent my weekend fossicking for a new work uniform now that I have decided to return to work, and have been fabulously rewarded for my efforts. Can't believe the quality of second hand clothing you can buy here in Canterbury!

  7. Such a lovely selection of floral fabrics - especially love the retro bright orange! :-)

    I'm a total crockery fiend so those octagonal plates have really made me smile :-)
