Op Shop Extravaganza (Part 2)

Continuing on from my big spend up last post, here are some more scores that I found at my local op shops. They seem to be chock-a-block with stock at this time of year, but kind of quiet at the same time, which suits me just fine.


Working vintage German Europa travel clock
Lifeline $1



2 Enamel flower thingymebobs.....I figured they'd be good for holding & hanging jewellery.
Lifeline


 Vintage suitcase....great for garage storage
Vinnies




 Old green brooch
Lifeline


 Tacky owl clock. Not vintage, but pretty kitsch!
It's eyes move side to side as the clock ticks which is pretty amusing.
Lifeline $2



Little house Salt & pepper set
Lifeline


 Doona cover & matching sheet
Vinnies



 Navy & white gingham cotton dress with lime collar & buttons
Vinnies

  7. The owl clock is bizarre and fabulous!
    I have a sort of similar pair of flower thingamies, but older, maybe! I was given them in a swap, and they're smaller and not as funky as yours.I hang earrings on them, as that was what I figured they were for after some head scratching!
    Hurrah for vintage cases; they're a real weakness of mine! Love the brooch!
    You've scored well, my sweet!

  10. Hello!
    I see you have found yourself some great buys again.
    I love those little travel alarm clocks. I have one myself and adore it "Even though everyone else says it ticks kinda loud"
    The owl clock is SUPER AWESOME.... I would be a smug bug if I ever found one of those. I laughed at the CHEESE EATERS sticker on the suitcase. I don't know about you but I am ot sure I would be the type to slap "Cheese Eater" on any of my things. (BUT I DO REALLY LIKE CHEESE) ;)
    Your dress is pretty!
