Thought I'd share a few vintage finds today
Last week I came across this small mannequin in a local thrift store and had to buy it. It is such an unusual little item and was all of $2.
I purchased this vintage budgerigar figurine on Ebay for $8 and had it sent from the U.S. At the time I was on the hunt for a larger vintage yellow crested cockatoo figurine and settled on this sweet little item instead.
I found this item at a garage sale in Kew for $2, at the time I had no idea what it was but I liked the jewel like lozenges on the stand and the marble base so I just bought it. I later discovered it was a lamp base and will have it wired and put to use very soon.
Another Ebay purchase this fabric Keep Calm & Carry On sign was sent from the UK and was produced by the book store that discovered the original 1939 wartime poster. A bargain at 3 pounds.
I don't often buy vintage fabric but I had to have this fat quarter of geometric seersucker.
Speaking of vintage yellow crested cockatoos - Perch New Orleans has this one.
Loving the Eiffel light too! What a great image.
