Finds Finds & Finds


Two garage sales and lots of finds later. Heavenly!



I found a sweet spot for this crusty old stool.


At first glance I thought this was Cath Kidston, however I was told this was purchased at an estate sale and is original from about the 1930's. It is hand made and so beautiful. I'll be putting my sewing bit's and pieces in it instead of shoes. It just needs a light press.

Mohair rug




I snapped this glass & timber art deco lamp up even before it was put down on display. I'm pretty chuffed at only $10.00, and it works.



A large rose tin to match my small tin.



Aahhh!!! What's happened to my little munchkins.



Fab finds by my little bargain hunters.




Ava scored this treasure chest with contents for $3.00.



Ava's finds from in chest, plus nose masks.



Sarah's finds all for $3.00.






Lastly vintage toys and fabric.


So lots of fun and finds for all

Have a lovely weekend and for more vintage finds pop over to Sophie's.

What classics, Alison! Loving the stool and that fabric really does look so CK-esque. Pure prettiness. A great haul! J x

Lovely things. CK really knows how to erm, 'reinterpret' a classic, huh?

Glad you are training your girls up to have a nose for a bargain!
