Vintage Finds

This morning I awoke early and said to my man I'm not going to any garage sales today.

A few hours later at around 8.30am I announced I'll just do a few, to which he just laughed. I just couldn't help myself and I'm so glad I went, as look at my treasures.

These three items were all in one box covered with grime $10.00 for the box.
After a little spruce up, don't they look lovely and they are all green.
I especially love the meat grinder as I haven't seen one like it before.
It's a Harper 1500 made in England, it is in good working order,
has two attachments and came with the original instructions.

I will make a display of these in my kitchen once I get a shelf.
Hopefully I won't be left waiting too long.

I think these old scissors I found for $10.00
will look interesting displayed on a wall where I sew.

Hehe, made me giggle, I have had many "i'm not going to go Op shopping anymore" moments that ended the same way ;)Awesome finds, those greens are stunning, and the scissors will make a fabulous display! We have plans to make a glass topped coffee table/display box one day for displaying such treasures on a rotating basis.
I know we talked about address exchanges, are you ready to do it before Chrsitmas? :) x

Hey Alison, I'm just curious as to what time you actually woke up. You must be an early bird if a 'few hours later' it's only 8.30am!!
As they say the early bird catches the worm and you certainly found some, treasures today. Never seen a coloured meat grinder and I love the scales.
The old brush and shovel is just like the one we had when I was a kid. They last a long time the metal todays plastic jobs.

I'm having my first giveaway, it you're interested you just need to pop over and leave a comment.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend,

Claire :}
You always find great things! Scales are fab.

I love the middle scales, all gorgeous shades of green. They will look great on display.
Oh Alison! those greens are stunning.
I didnt know it was a meat grinder til you said. its definitely an unusual one. I grew up using one with my mum. It was always a huge part of our time in the kitchen and I have to admit the subject of many fights over who got to turn it.
I hope you use it too but perhaps do a roster first!
