Why is it when you tell yourself you don't need to buy anything else that temptation seems to be in every op shop? I wasn't planning on buying anything, but these things were too good to leave behind!
My eye went straight to these old Krupps bathroom scales at Salvos for $5. I think orange is the next best colour to green.
I found a set of drawers identical to one we have from when Mr P was a boy. I've seen them go for a fair bit on Ebay lately. $4 from the church op shop.
Also from the church op shop was this old Australian tulip vase. It's actually really big, like a salad bowl. I can't make out the markings, but the op shop lady said she was given something similar for a wedding present 60 years ago. Also $4.
This footed bowl was from the New Farm RSPCA op shop for $3. Can you believe it's actually sterling silver, but someone has painted over it as I guess it was tarnished. Funny thing is I actually like the red industrial look. Now it's yet another spot where I can store my ball collection.
