The best week EVAH!!!!

This week I have had THE BEST LUCK at op-shops and vintage stores, and garage sales too!!!! So I will have a couple of pic-heavy posts to show you all my finds!!

Vintage mirror-$15 op shop
Lamp-(50's??) $6.00 op-shop

I saw these gorgeous little clip-on earrings at the frame/vintage store across the road from me. They were $20, but since I had been in a few weeks ago admiring them, she gave them to me for $15!

Girl pic with gold frame-not totally sold on the pic, but I will use the frame. $3 op-shop

I fell in love with this picture. Probably because there is a watertower in it. I have a bit of a thing for water towers (There used to be a big one directly behind my house growing up. I used to stare at it for ages and it always put me at ease for some reason. It got pulled down nearly 10 years ago, but I still have dreams about it! Weird? Anyway-$3 op-shop

1950's drawers $10 ebay

These are Nallyware-ish canisters that I got from the op-shop. They had $12 on them, but they had a purple ticket, and it was half-price on purple ticket items that day. Score!!!

My best find that day-a vintage kitchen dresser! I've wanted one for ages!!! I got it for $60 from a salvos furniture place, and the guy threw in free delivery, AND a box of the crockery that was displayed on it LOL...I thought he was joking when he asked if I wanted it :D

I'll post some more of my finds tomorrow....I've got HEAPS to show off!!! Stay tuned xxx


  1. GREAT finds, the drawer and the dresser was insanely cheap, wish I could have that kind of thrifting-luck sometime =)

  2. Boy, what amazing finds! I never find such great things in op-shops!
