I've finally had the chance to photograph my finds from our weekend away on the Sunshine Coast. I did tell a fib when I said we didn't buy anything at the antique fair. I bought my Mum a couple of things for her birthday. But apart from that I had more luck at the op shops then the fair.
Mum mentioned one day that she had always wanted a toast rack
And something to add to her collection of Royal Albert Old Country Roses
And my op shop finds.........
Donkey burro from my fave dingy op shop
I now have 3.....another collection????!!!
A hand knitted bed jacket/cardigan in new condition
I've never worn yellow before, but all week I've been planning my outfits around it!
Another tooled leather bag
I thought $2.50 was pretty good, until I saw Op Shop Mama's 20cent bag!
1960's sewing & craft book
It contains beginners instructions on crochet, cross-stitch, sewing, knitting
Tips on how to dress for your figure
Well before Trinny & Susannah came up with the idea!
Old patterns for 5cents each
Some more Nana knit coat-hangers
I love how they are wrapped in funky fabric & then knitted over the top
Such effort went into making these!
Pink & orange bling brooch
Flower in resin brooch
Resin rings 50cents each
French made mohair hat
Perfect with my brooch from a friend Miss C
Japanese Koeshi doll
A hand knitted doll....Yip it was the green outfit that grabbed me!
At $3 I couldn't resist.
So the op shops definitely trumped the antique fair for me this year!
I hope all of the Mother's & Grandma's had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday. I think maybe there should be an Aunties Day too!
