Horsea & Other Op Shopped Finds

I rarely get to garage sales, I would love to go to them more frequently, but Saturdays are often spent horizontal so that I can do something with the Captain on Sundays. They tend to be so hit & miss & rather time consuming driving from house to house. It's probably just as well really, otherwise I'd be bringing even more old stuff home with me.
 I did get to a little old man's garage sale a while back, & came home with my first pieces of Hornsea Heirloom pottery. I've become rather drawn to the retro patterns & colours. You see these pieces every now & then in op shops but they are asking fairly high prices lately. Hornsea pottery was founded by two brothers in 1949. The Heirloom range was Produced 1967 -1987 & designed by John Clappison.

I found yet another pair of Kumfs wedge sandals at Salvos for $4

A sweet green jacket with braided trim down the front
Endos Paddington

And the Captain scored with the funky-dory green polyester polo shirt which was $5.

3/4 sleeve cardigan with birds in blue


  1. LOVE! that bird sweater at the end. The color is fantastic too!
