Thrifted Finds...Snelling, Enamel and WGP

This old footstool was hiding away in the furniture section of Lifeline, and at $8 I figured it was worth buying as I had a sneaking suspicion that it was a Snelling. I was happy to find my hunch was right, it's a khaki webbing Douglas Snelling stool circa 1957 manufactured by functional Products Pty Ltd, Sydney, Australia. I'm not sure what the stool is worth but it's safe to say it was a good buy at $8.

Another trinket box to add to my collection, I love the bold enamel detail on this one

A vintage dress I found at a store called Creative Treasures

I had no idea where I'd put it, but I couldn't leave this gorgeous old mirror behind at Salvos for $5

A large Scheurich West German Pottery vase for $3 from Salvos

Some enamel brooches to add to my collection from an Instagram seller

This boudoir chair was $3 at Salvos

This heavy wooden shelf was only a few dollars as well....great for squeezing in a few more treasures

A crochet cushion


  1. Wow - you certainly have an eye for a bargain! Loving that stool. Thank you for the info on the manufacturer. I have a chair which belonged to my parents now languishing in my husbands workshop to repair one day. Always knew it was something special, now I have some info. Would go well with your stool! How on earth did you manage to find such a classic mirror for $5 also?! cheers Wendy
