More Recent Finds

A herb chopping thingy - $3.50. CMS Opportunity Shop, cnr. High & Pakington sts, Kew. (With superbly matching egg cups from an op shop in Narooma, NSW - $0.10 each!)

Evening bag - $15. Toorak Opportunity Shop, Canterbury Rd, Toorak.
Bit hard to date, but perhaps 60s? Any suggestions? It's marked 'Made in Spain Fortnum & Mason Gift Dept.' I just love the wee details like the covered button, the interior stitching and the coin purse and its chain.
Mikasa Sugar Bowl - $3. Vinnies, Johnston St, Collingwood.
Cake tin - $4. Vinnies, High St, Kew East.
After reading Adelle's post I trotted out to Yours Now Mine in Greythorn, Doncaster Road - didn't know it existed - and they happened to be having a 1/2 price day. Vase - $4. So, thanks Adelle!

I love the handled on the bag - the orange and grey look great together. Who would have thought? I guess it is 60s..... :)

oh you're welcome!!
I have three vases like that in my bathroom that I bought on ebay for about $30.. That orange one would match perfectly with the rest of mine. hehe..

Oh Zigsma! That cake tin matches my flour sifter! Which, by the way, is not an opshop purchase - I inherited it from my mum who died in 1969, but had used it for years beforehand, so I don't know how old it is, but I'm guessing it's from the swinging 60's.

That lovely bag you found probably came from the very expensive and famous store in London - Fortnum and Mason. I'm not sure if they still exist or not but they were incredibly upmarket.
