A quick stop at the tip shop

We spent the day in Canberra today. I needed to go to work to sign some papers, then after the kids and I went to the movies to see Marmaduke. It was really funny!

On the way back we took a quick detour to the local tip shop, Tinys Green Shed, at Mugga Lane.

I took a few photos of the treasures that I had to leave behind. Unless the kids were willing to walk home (we live 40 minutes outside of Canberra) there was no way any of it would fit in the car.





I just loved this chair. Even though it is quite stained the fabric is divine! ~$50



Deco club lounge



The Bushells tea chest was cool and the trough was pretty awesome too



Nice metal trunk



Heavy cast iron table base



This is my favourite area, the outside junkers delights



These cubby holes are so popular at the moment



The colours of the filing cabinet are the perfect shade



Best of all I scored this beauty for free! yay!

I did buy a couple items which I will show tomorrow.

Happy junking,

T

Hi Tamara, thanks for visiting my blog it is much appreciated. Your tip shop looks great, we have similar here but nothing on that scale. I love the little violet covered chocolate box in your previous post, just the sort of thing I would go for and a bargain too. Your makeover on the mannequin is brilliant, such a good idea.
