As Simone said, we had a lovely morning at the shabby vintage junk extravagaza. A very nicely put together event by Tamara Charter. Having purchased early bird tickets, we gained access an hour before everyone else and were also treated to a sweet handmade tote (made from vintage striped calico) filled with little treats from the stall holders. Morris Brown soap, handmade bookmarks, discount vouchers and more.
Having lined up our lovely husbands to mind the kids for the day, we made the most of it and proceeded to go "hunting". We really must learn to take a packed lunch on these adventures- hot chips and diet coke are being consumed a little too often!!
And now for some of our fab friday finds.....
Clearly T.Evans had a good year in 1963 winning 3 trophys for "quick step" (dancing i guess).
Old trophy's are the "it" thing to adorn your mantle and to get full effect, must be grouped. I assume Tamara probably got these on her travels to Texas recently and I think I may have hip and shouldered a few people at the extravaganza to get to them first.
A sweet little couple of finds pictured here....a cane egg basket which grabbed my eye immediately. Just love the shape and the fact that it's cane and not wire for a change of pace.
Also pictured is a roll of nylon taffeta, which we got a few of. "cash's of coventry" made in england and very old. Finding vintage trims like this in good condition are priceless and may play a part in our cushion range.
Now you simply cannot go past a pair of twirling batons and in this case, we got 3! They are really beaten up and rustic. They are sitting in an old doctors tongue depressor jar.(you know the little icypole sticks the doctor always had on his desk?) Think the jar might be my favourite find today.
Look at the gorgeous pics surrounding this vintage Junior Scrabble game. I am a sucker for a good game board and this one was even better than i hoped! Love love love....
We can never go past a glass dome, even one as small as this.....
Have a fabulous weekend all. Don't forget to pay us a visit at The Vintage Shed.
93 Mornington-Tyabb , Tyabb- a great afternoon out on the Peninsula.
