After reading all your blogs and seeing all your amazing finds, I had the hunting bug so India and I headed out yesterday for a spot of treasure hunting. Now that I am 'out' I am amazed that we found any bargains..haha (thanks for the lovely and embarrassing comments...blush)
Could this be the tiniest elephant in the world?? I bought another herd (12) carved elephants for my mum's collection. She needs another like a hole in the head as the saying goes. But they are small, this being the smallest.
Found a fantastic old leather bound book,'Chambers's Information for the People Vol 2', it has some very interesting information, which I will post another day. The Little glass dome (reminiscent of a Victorian dome) is Chinese and held a cork craving. I scraped it out and it now holds my grandmothers (Jessie) rosary beads, below.
The bell above was only 50 cents. My gran (Gladys) had one, so it is a reminder of her. I bought the broken cup (so pretty) at the tip to hold jewellery and bits and bobs.
The silver cake forks were a steal at only $5, love 'em.
Another headband for the dress up collection.
A small canvas army bag missing the strap, and an army belt, which will become the strap.
2 Woollen blankets, and an eiderdown peeking out from underneath. Would you believe I found the eiderdown for $5, even though its not my colours I am not going to leave it there when they are so hard to find.
We found the skull for Kade, had to bring him home something right??
I bought a huge lamp shade very similar to this when I was 17/18. I since sold it one, but I thought that maybe I shouldn't have. Anyway, today I found another one, this one is in perfect condition, the other was ripped inside. It is pink in colour not orange as my camera has made it out to be.
More about this guy in the next post...
Happy treasure hunting one and all!
