Vintage Finds


A Sunday garage sale usually has less dealers arriving early, so I hoped I would have some luck in finding some goodies. I arrived 15 minutes early and saw people already walking away with some treasures. Blast!!

There were lots of boxes to scrounge through and hidden treasures still to discover. I walked away happy with these finds.


Chicken, rooster and clock $1.00 each


Remember these fabric dolls from the 70's, I so wanted one when I was little
and for $1.00 she is now mine. Her nose is a little grubby but that's ok.


Yet another old case $2.00.



Doulton Grecian Key $20 the lot


Swinnertons b & b plates and saucers $4.00
I just love the colours.


These were hidden in a plain looking box and it was love at first sight.
Just look at the gorgeous colours and they work. *Swoon*

Pop over to Sophie's for more finds.

Lovely finds! I like the chicken and rooster and the suitcase too! The typewriter looks in fabulous condition. You may be able to clean the 70s doll nose with a little carb soda rubbed in. :)

That display doll is a blast from the past. I desperately wanted one when I was about 8 and I was so proud when I finally got one. I think it was only about four days old when one of my baby brothers (I had 4) pushed both cheeks in. It just wasn't the same and I couldn't love her anymore so flawed. Some very powerful emotions looking at that doll. Have never seen one since so yours is a real surprise.
