Opportunities missed.

Today, for something different, I thought I would show what I DIDN"T bring home with me from the Op shops I visited.
Feel free to vote with your comment if you think I should have bought something I didn't or if it is awful not awesome!
First up, here's a fold out bed. This one could handle a pretty comfy thick foam mattress and it even incorporates a headboard that slides down into position as it is opened. When it's closed it doubles as a table!
Unfortunately way too bulky compared to the two slim line ones that get regular use from the boys friends.
Next a vintage map tray. It has a few spots on the surface and the handle binding was loose on one side. $3
 Across the other side I spotted two, umm, what would you call them? Not exactly stools, not exactly pouffes but wooden frames with lovely gold embossed vinyl cushions. $10ea, surprisingly priced quite steep for this oppy.
I even left behind some vintage fabrics. sigh... $1 each piece, and $3.50 for a bajillion metres of floral binding.
This glass complete 7 piece dessert set was quite sweet with it's patterned glass and flower accent. $6
A complete Arcopal dinnerset. $8
 A plastic lemon yellow lemon squeezer with gold decal (it's more lemon yellow irl). .50c

A Johnson plate on the freebie table in a pattern I haven't seen around much. I don't collect Johnson plates (obviously) but thought I'd throw this pic out there for those that do.

And lastly something I actually meant to buy but forgot! I'll have to go back another day and hope they are still there. Thread holding racks for $1 a pair.
Maybe tomorrow I can share what i actually did get.
