The Captain & I ran away to the Sunshine Coast again this past weekend to go to the Caloundra Antique Fair. The fair is held in a basket ball stadium, & there are lots of sellers & treasures up for sale.
There was a Royal Doulton loo for sale for $500...Imagine the use that's had since 1880!
I LOVE this tin. Bit too pricey for me at $30
We did bring this shelf home with us. It's for the Captains model aircraft collection. I love it's mid century legs and staggered shelves.
How cute are these Jiffy shoes in the original packaging. Only $4
This pair of Snappy Snail salt & pepper shakers by Enesco from the 50's were my only purchase
Those faces!!! Strange but sweet!
The Captain had to bring at least one plane home
I found this red glass jar thing the previous weekend at Salvage Designs...a new little vintage store on the Coast. Prices are really reasonable. This only cost $5 & it matches my orange one.
This is where they sit with my large jars and my favourite old disco lamp, which really deserves it's own post one day.
A lady having a garage sale was getting rid of her vintage clothing collection with each piece between $2 and $5, so I picked up a few things seeing as there ain't been much vintage worth paying for at my local op shops. I love the print of this 'David' dress and jacket. The waist was a bit low for my liking so I cut the top and skirt across the waist and took up the top a bit, before sewing it back together. A bit ambitious for a novice like me, but it has improved the shape.
A handmade maxi dress with a sweet rolled collar which I wore to the fair
At Salvos I picked up this blue jacket, which I have shortened.
So that's about it from the picture perfect Sunshine Coast! Not one person was swimming in that incredible water due to our Queensland temperatures plummeting to 21 degrees (70F)! Instead the scarves & beanies were out in full force which always makes me laugh.
