Squiggly Thrifting beyond The Hills

Hi Guys, it's Rach again from Squiggly Rainbow..... I hit beyond my Hills yesterday.  Beaconsfield Op Shop was fabulous!  So many bargains.  It is situated on Old Emerald Road (I think) in the strip shops of Beaconsfield.  It is tucked behind the church entrance.


Here is a snap of some of the stuff I found there....


I LOVE this Sesame Street single bed sheet!  It is near new condition too!


I then ventured out of the Hills and landed at the Salvation Army in Beaconsfield - not much to find there - just this gorgeous crochet woolen blanket and the huge enamel tea pot/billy/coffee pot pictured above.


Then my favorite score was at the Narre Warren Salvo's... a whole tube of vintage red buttons and a cute vintage pattern.



Hope you have a great thrifting weekend!

Wonderful sheet I love finding patterned sheets like that I got some retro 70s ones with girls on them last month they are being used now.

It is a Stephanie Alexander book, my favorite Daisy! Unfortunately it wasn't thrifted - paid full retail (it was worth it though!).
