I dragged the kids out for a day of thrifting Wednesday morning; the lure of Maccas breakfast was too great (they would not have left the house otherwise). Unbeknown to us, we picked the hottest day to venture out, we thought it was only going to be 29 deg C but apparently it reached 33 deg C. It was so damn hot, the tip shop shed was a million degrees, the kids came out with red cheeks and itchy armpits. We did, however, leave with a few bargains in tow. The car was full to the brim, so our intentions of doing food shopping on the way home was quashed.
Thrifting: 1, Food shopping: 0
The one armed boxer missing his base. He's an oldie, made of brass not plastic, so he was definitely coming home.
I was amazed that this 7 piece Davidson or Bagley depression glass dessert piece was in perfect condition, found at the tip shop for $30. I have a few other pieces in the same pattern, in pink and blue, including a cake stand and berry bowls.
Could you imagine yourself sipping Tang from these beauties? I have the old glass tang jug so these will be fantastic for our pizza dining. Four glasses with original stand $15 opshop.
Ok, this little fellow wasn't thrifted, but he was so cute that he had to come home too.
The cane table came for the opshop which doesn't normally have furniture and it only arrived that morning. It was priced at $25, a bit exie for an oppie, but not for what it was so it became a passenger in the back seat. I will probably remove the vinyl contact.
The glass panels on the top belong to the cupboard below...
This was my favourite find of the day, and hence no room in the boot for food. It is quite tall, probably 150cm?? It needs a makeover, but is perfect for my studio to hold bits and bobs. The glass sits in the top as sliding doors.
A Readers Digest 12" globe, a little tattered and dented, but is cool because it swivels up and down and around.
A trolley from Y's Buys for $5, great for the next swap meet, Goulburn 1st April, not too far away.
But wait there's more!.... but I will leave them for another post. Enjoy your weekend, T x
