Thrift Shop Finds

This week I went to my local vinnies store in search of vintage sheets, which of course I didn't find! Instead I found lots of other goodies!

Most of my local op shops are overpriced - about twice what I'd want to pay - so I prefer to stick to the country stores but sometimes there are awesome finds I can't pass up!

Like this little beauty...my love of Vintage Strawberry Shortcake and Sewing Combined!

A shame it didn't have the original thimble with it! Now I must fight to keep Amelie's mitts off it!

A nice selection of books...some picked by Amelie (the orange books at the top) an some by me!

Her new favourite is 'That's not my Dolly'

I adore this 'Thinking Book' - beautiful illustrations!


An awesome (and a little bit freaky) Blythe knock-off with changing eye colour!


A collection of Ric Rac - I love those old cards!

A pair of shoes each for the girls - I love the little leather handcrafted ones...amazing and they appear to have never been worn!

And lastly Amelie has proven herself to be a keen eyed op-shoper at the wee age of 3 as she spotted this lady bird fairy costume amongst the racks, it is awesome and she has been wearing it ever since!

  6. I must say that ladybug fairy costume is wonderful! Also love the old ric rac cards; very cool. Children's books are so fun to find as well.

    But that doll.... she is a bit creepy.
