~ Weekend Thrift Finds ~





Got a chance to squeeze in some thrift shopping over the weekend. Here are a few things I picked up. Some amazing vintage haberdashery trim sample cards for $1 each [ I can see these framed ]. A pair of fish salt and pepper shakers for $2 [ they don't look to happy do they? ]. A lovely ceramic bird trinket box $2 and a lovely weathered old pen & bits holder 50c. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

  2. Those fish are miserable. Love the bird trinket box & old pen holder - what a great colour and natural time-worn shabby. x

  27. Really great bargains! My sister found some wicked stuff in the US when we were there - down at the dump and at yard sales...love comparing how different countries second hand goods differ and what treasures you can find! xxx

  28. Hi Simone, you find the best pieces! I adore those fish! They do look a little grumpy but they make up for it with their divine colour. Pruxxx P.S. I bought the magazine you were featured in. The article was fabulous. I felt they really captured your personality. So nice to see your house etc. in more detail too. Px
