The Captain & I enjoyed a lovely weekend on the Sunshine Coast for the annual Collectables Fair. They say it's one of Australia's largest antique fairs under one roof. There was a big crowd at the fair, & lots of nice things, but I came away empty handed for once! That is a first! I'm becoming a bit more discerning about what I bring home as I have so much stuff already. But a big factor is the prices too....I think I get more joy from the treasure hunt & finding a bargain at op shops or garage sales. But I do enjoy finding inspiration at the fairs, & seeing the crazy prices on things I already own.
I loved the display of view masters. Mine was one of my favourite toys as a child.
The Captain loves old airline bags, but doesn't have one of his own yet!
Here's a catch up on some recent-ish op shop & garage sale finds.
Pink apron with 3 big pockets
A GREEN sparkly brooch which I've worn HEAPS
A 50cent green ring to match
A sweet novel/book about a career in fashion from 1962
RCPCA op shop
Little chicken mug
Salt & Pepper cruet set
Made in Japan & never used, but I smashed the Mustard lid! Oops!
I'll soon fill you in on what I found at the op shops while we were away. Of course I didn't leave them empty handed!
