Recent Thrifted Delights

Joining in with Sophie's Flea Market Finds this week: I really must compose a Dream Thrifting List too: its sounds just delightful!
Well on a rainy Saturday I ventured out to do some opshopping and then a week later on a sunny Saturday I ventured out again. Note to self: cute red sandshoes are perhaps not the most ideal wet weather shoes.

Here are my finds: I always seem to go for the vintage sheets first (my current fave) then meander around looking at other linens; shoes & clothes, bric a brac; kitchen ware; haberdashery; tchotchkes, etc...)

2 soup spoons for my mismatched cutlery set (I was able to get my mismatched set all in one go for forks, knives and spoons at a big opshop depot but for some reason they had hardly any soup spoons, so slowly gathering them…)

1970s dinner party anyone?!
These new thrifted melamine servers go perfectly with my old thrifted linen tablecloth

Bowl of yummy watermelon yarn: whether I make anything from the yarn is beside the point: it looks so yummy! (Yarn did not come in bowl: when I got home I thought fruit is not the only item you can display in bowls.)

Vintage threads: Gutermann is good but thrifted vintage Sylko & Coats Super Sheen threads are so much better: yes I am a vintage thread snob!

Happy opshopping folks! xx


  1. that dog teatowel is so super cute!

  2. some great stuff. i love the threads and the blue floral tablecloth is beautiful and so many great finds in the previous post as well. lovely oppies do not have good shoes or clothing at all. a wonderful selection of treasures you've shared.

  3. Great finds! I love those threads!

  4. The blue floral-patterned fabric has stolen my heart, it's just so lovely and I have a real soft spot for blue and white :-)

  5. I always pick up linen tea towels, love the dogs on yours.

  6. Fab finds - especially the little dogs - I'm a Scot, so they really appeal to me.
