Thrifted Finds with a Crochet Theme


Here are a few things I've found at my local op shops lately...........


I seem to be finding crocheted things at the moment. I do like this large bag, probably used for ones knitting? It has two long metal knitting needles across the top & large pipe style handles.


My local Salvos was having a half price sale so I got this black vintage stretch belt for $1



I know this crochet contraption is a little weird, but I like it & figured it would be useful for storing something....maybe scarves. It was made as a peg basket, & an ice cream container sits inside....Genius!



Some new old stockings in the original box 50cents.




Another Granny square crochet cushion (see what I mean about all the crochet?) This one is nice & large.


A sweet little 60's? vase.

  1. I love all of your bright crochet goodies. The icecream container is very clever, if only I knew hot to crochet.

  6. I think the bag is my favourite but that funny little peg bag contraption is oddly appealing too!
    Always love the packaging of old hosiery. I think that vase might even be earlier, it has a 1950s look to me.
    Good op shopping! xxxx

  12. I love a bit of crochet too! I'm always on the look out for great crochet pillows like the one you found. The crochet storage contraption brings back memories of things I'd see around my grandmother's (and her friends) houses. They make perfect sense. Stick a crochet on it and it looks much prettier! ;)

    Great stocking find!
