Odd Op Shop Finds


Here are some rather pointless random op shopped finds. 



When I saw this lamp at Lifeline I could tell it was old by the plug & cord. It's gold brass on the outside with green glass inside, obviously oriental. It does give such a pretty green glow, perfect for my busy corner of the bedroom.











Vintage Dymo label maker
Orange.....Had to have it

Strange plastic beaded round thingys
Car boot sale





On the wall they went.....





My first abacus found at Salvos, my darling Miss J has many so I followed her lead.

  2. Very pretty finds. The lamp is beautiful. Those round thingies look like really fancy trivets. But I like where you hung them.

  3. Oh the lamp is lovely. We're desperately on the hunt for two bedside lamps, preferably vintage of course in yellow or mustard tones. Hopefully the thrifting gods will answer my pleas soon.

    How cool s the labeller I remember my patents having one the same.

  5. Jon's been desperate for a Dynamo for ages and was beside himself with joy when he won one on eBay the other day - the postage cost more than the gadget! That lamp casts a magical glow, it's lovely! x

  7. The lamp is beautiful, and those plastic mat thingies remind me of Spirograph patterns! Everyone used to have those tape label gizmos when I was young, I didn't know they had a name! xxxx
