Second hand Shopping Adventures!

Tuesday 9 October 2012

Hi everyone!

I spent the weekend with my mum going to a couple of boot-sales and enjoying the weekend together.

I purchased quite a few great things that I adore!

 I bought up these late 1950s/60s lampshades! I think they're gorgeous and they didn't cost me much at all!

I was lucky to get a box of vintage material! There is enough to make a couple of dresses, a skirt and some playsuits... I'll just show you a few of them.
 I love the birds on this material!
 This is a little weird, maybe kids material, I would still use it though, maybe a skirt!
And this! It's the same as the first material but the colours are slightly different! I'm going to have a couple of beautiful summer dresses with this material!
I found these  old international coins in the bottom of the material box, the previous owner must have forgotten about them. Some are from 1946, 1950 and through to the 1980s.
I got this delightful egg serving plate and my mum loved it so much that she made curried eggs to serve with dinner.
I got hold of some old knitting books, I just love the photos and designs.
I love collecting these little pictures, I already have few and came across these ones!
Mum and I had a nice drink after our shopping adventures! Mum had a soy cuppuccino and I had a beautiful iced tea with lots of fruit through it!
 My yummy iced tea!
And the dogs had their dog treats (bought from the boot-sale from the dogs treat man).

Mum was happy to pick up That 70's Show the complete boxset for $30 like new!

There's something for everyone!


  1. I wish you lived in the US; you seem like so much fun to hang out with!!! You've gotten me in the thrift-shopping & sewing mood today... Keep being lovely and wonderful!!!!

  2. One of the fundamental worries of those recording liquidation is losing their vehicle. You know how Americans are, they adore their autos. Albeit, nobody needs to lose their auto to Chapter 7 liquidation however it won't not be essential. car title loans online chicago
