It’s been such a long time since we shared any of our thrifty finds! We’ve found a few little gems lately…
Like this vintage set of wooden pineapple bowls, still in their original packaging! Aren’t they cute?! That pretty sheet in the background is a recent find too.
And this lovely set of vintage Johnson Brothers dishes, as well as the tablecloth they are sitting on. Technically, I didn’t find the dishes. A friend picked them up for me. I am so grateful for friends who know me so well and “get” my taste!
After months of thinking I might never find another vintage sheet again, in recent weeks I’ve gotten really, really lucky! All the sheets in the picture above are in mint condition and have never been used. The sets in packets I found on a random shelf in a secondhand furniture store. The ones that aren’t in packets were from an op-shop. All of them are complete sets with pillow cases and have never even been washed! Amazing.
This sweet little elephant came home with me on the weekend. She looked so sad sitting on a table of junk at a garage sale and for $1, I just couldn’t say no.
Like the Johnson dishes, I didn’t actually find these. They came with a purchase a friend made at an antique auction, and knowing how much I love old bottles, he gave them to me. These are going to look so pretty sitting on a windowsill holding flowers. I think the tiny bottles are particularly special (I love miniature things!)
I found this vintage Johnson cake platter in an op-shop a few weeks ago. This is actually the second Johnson cake platter I have found still in it’s original box. I found the first one a few years ago and we use it all the time, so I’m really happy to have found another (in a different design). I love Johnson crockery so much and I’m gathering quite a collection of it. I am thinking of donating all my other vintage plates and mugs and only collecting and using pieces by Johnson from now on, so our crockery will all match in a mismatchy kind of way. The pillowcase in the background was 50c at an op-shop last week.
Have you had any nice thrifty finds lately? I love hearing about peoples op-shopping/thrifting/flea-marketing adventures.
