I haven't had a thrifty finds post for awhile. In the last few weeks I haven't had much time to go looking, and when I did go looking...there was nothing to be found!
Instead I cleaned out our wardrobes, toy boxes and kitchen cupboards and donated quite a lot of 'stuff' to several shops instead. I like to spread my 'stuff' around to several stores instead of leaving everything at one place.....I call it sharing the love!
Anything novelty sucks me right in. I collect novelty printed clothing and anything kitsch. So when I saw this Japan Anthromophoric apple tea set.....it HAD to be mine. This was not a thrift/op shop find but a find on Facebook. The price I paid for it is what the average price the teapot is going for on eBay. So I am a very conceited little Apple over this purchase.
Another Japanese painted item, this time a candlestick from the 30's in mint condition for $5.
Squee! Isn't this little pixie divine? He is actually a bell! 50's kitsch was too cute!
Another 60s wicker purse to add to my purse collection. $5
A 50s/60s needlepoint coin purse in mint condition. 20c
A modern apothecary embossed jar for $5. It's tall enough for spaghetti but I'll probably use it for lollies!
A Moorcroft plate for....wait for it.....FREE!! The Sexiest Man found it ina pile of rubbish!
And lastly, this awesome 60's leopard coat for $25. It needs a bit of work, but it looks like it could be worth it.
