Flea Market Finds


These are my op shop finds for the last week. I was particularly pleased with the buttons in shades of green/duck egg blue - as these are my favourite colours!


NZ wool rugs - the purple one is huge! Doilies and a tablecloth.


Another jug (i have a few) - 50c , and a lovely shaped plate - 40c.


Some cross stitch and embroidery. Most of these buttons are from the Salvation Army. $2 for about 10. The bigger ones i picked up at Salvage (a vintage textile store).
To see some other great finds, pop over to Sophies!

I had more time this week, (without children) as I was on Juror Duty. And the one where i found the buttons doesn't usually have ANY buttons! Apparently they have only just recently had time to sort them out!

I love to make things from weel made nana items, and I can see you do too, great to meet fellow nz bloggers.
