Added to my collection was another pretty little china saucer, a lovely embroidered doiley & two vintage books (one from 1942 & a classic old Lassie novel). I also found a school pinafore for Amity for $3.00, which normally value around $60 brand new, so i was pleased with that one & also Chas found the sequel to 'Gone with the Wind', 'Scarlett' - so that one definitely had to come home with us.
When we ducked into this op-shop we were on a quick time limit before school pick-up time, so when i entered the store i hastily went through my mental 'thrift list' -- the things i search for & hope to find when op-shopping. Here's what's on my list..........
- vintage baby/toddler knitting books
- vintage babywear
- old golden books or Enid Blyton books
- nice fabric
- vintage crockery & vases
- good quality kid's clothes
- vintage deer/fawn ornaments
- ornate picture frames
- retro sewing patterns
- haberdashery items
- doll's clothes
- embroidered doilies
- out of print Ion Iddress books
- milk glass
- vintage bevelled edge mirror with a pretty etching
Hopefully i'll get another chance to go thrifting again asap, (and with a bit of luck i'll find the mirror) i have really missed it! In the meantime i can check out Flea Market Finds & see all the goodies that i have already missed out on.
