I saw this cotton swimsuit on a mannequin in a Red Cross op shop. I have a wee vintage swimsuit collection already, & I do wear them to the beach, but I don't have any original 50's cotton togs. I doubt these have ever been worn as they are in perfect condition. The shirring isn't stretched & the cotton is crisp & bright. They fit perfectly too thanks to that shirring & button straps. I don't know how practical cotton togs are to wear, but these were too special to leave behind.
My love of genie bottles started with one that belonged to my Nana.
I found this one for only 50cents
I was drawn to this colourful handmade container thingo. Someone has stored nails & screws in the butter containers & built a box to store them in. I love the old coloured plastic which I think is from the 1960's. I'm surprised it's survived as the plastic is quite delicate.
I had to add this square suitcase to my collection because of that lining
West German brand Emsa salt & pepper shakers
A little Diana Ware tulip vase
A sweet water jug from the 50's or 60's
That's all for now, although I have a backlog of finds to share...in fact most of these are from last year!
