It's Flea Market Finds time! I'm joining in the fun over at Her Library adventures, late as per usual!
This week I have been quite restrained. Sort of. I have been busy donating to the local op shops more than buying. Some things shown here were from a while ago that my sister was holding onto for me or she had collected for me. Some others were from a magical place full of so many treasures you just cannot fathom until you have experienced it for yourself! If you live here in Adelaide or are holidaying, you absolutely MUST visit! More on that later.
Two lonely little salt and pepper shakers missing their partners. I have a soft spot for bluebirds and the penguin is very Mary Poppins don't you think? I am picturing a little vignette with a Mary poppins book, an umbrella, a carpet bag and this little fellow on top. Stay tuned! I have a pretty old book copy, and am in the process of carpet bag making!
Cross Rd Collectables. This place is like Aladdin's Cave and the Tardis rolled into one. I took just a few pics of the place that show just a drop in the ocean of the shelves and shelves of collectibles and room upon room of fleamarket priced fancies! Honestly, although they may not be as cheap as some Op shops, they are definitely cheaper than many!
You won't believe what is OUTSIDE though, under carports and verandahs, in sheds and just hanging around on shelves stacked high! This shot shows maybe half the shelves under the back verandah. Heaps of cheap retro and vintage china under here including retro Royal Doulton! Many pieces $1 or $2 or less!
