I've managed to go to several Sunday morning car boot sales this year. I mainly go there to buy cheap fruit and vegetables from local farmers (half the price of the supermarkets). Sometimes I'll come home with some good loot, sometimes I'll find nothing at all. These are my favourite recent finds...
These wooden cat salt and pepper shakers are just so lovely, and were actually a find from late last year. I bought them from a man who had hundreds of salt and pepper shakers, his mother had collected them her whole life, and when she passed on he didn't know what to do with them all. So selling them seemed like a good idea, and I am glad, as I found these beauties amongst them all.
I had to buy this vintage ice cream tin, despite it not being all that nice on the inside. The design on the top was so intriguing and cool, who knew Sunkist made ice-cream!? Apparently they did in the 60's. And well, isn't the red dancing elephant on the side so sweet:
Lastly, this was a recent find. I was drawn to it because of the cute red rabbits. When I opened it up it seemed to be some sort of clutch purse, or maybe jewellery box. The seller wasn't really sure what it was meant for, she let me have it for $2!
The inside compartments are separated by these shrimp, such a strange animal to pair with singing rabbits! Once I clean it up a bit I think I'll use it for storing sewing bits and pieces in.
Thrifting is so much fun. Have you found any bargains lately?
