The Thrill of a Bargain or Twelve


Today, I popped down to Daylesford for a bit of a wander and hit fossicking GOLD.

I have not had such a successful day finding my kind of stuff for a long, LONG time.
And ALL of it from only 2 stores! The Salvos oppy and the Daylesford Bazaar
I thought I would join in the fun and good natured, showing-off over at Flea Market Finds, for the first time in quite a while...and also play along over at Apron Thrift Girl for Thrift Share Monday.

My goodies consist of:

A tailored, black wool, silk-lined Fletcher Jones 3 button jacket which fits like a glove
Dark denim GAP straight leg boy cut jeans - fit perfectly
An old shell covered container with rose lid
An old rose tin that I do not have (and I already own 40 odd!)
A lovely silk Japanese embroidery
3 different size, old pudding bowls
A large green enamel-ware, baking dish
A 50's green pottery jug with filtered pouring spout
A fabulous old Airlite suitcase
A 40's gladioli print in original frame

AND all-up $110 exactly...

That should do me for quite some time, I feel as if I have had a massive, naughty hit!

What about you?

  2. SCORE! I am itching for a good fossick. I think Saturday is looking good for Abbotsford Salvo's.
