Thrifty Finds

On a recent trip up to my parents in law’s place in Northern Victoria, I was lucky to have a child free morning so I went for a little op-shopping trip. I hit the jackpot in Elmore, a little town between Bendigo and Echuca.

I picked up some gorgeous vintage sewing bits and pieces:

Some great vintage sheets and pillowcases that can look forward to their new lives as future dresses for my girls!

And my favourite – this great Cadbury Chocolates tin. It is a bit battered and bruised but I love the waratahs! My mother in law thinks it might be from the 1950s. Do you recognise it? Any ideas when it was made? I might have to email Cadburys and find out! I keep lots of my sewing things in old tins so this one will probably be filled pretty quickly.

Love country op-shops! Happy thrifting!

Linking here with lots of other gorgeous vintage finds!

  1. What fantastic finds! I just love the old packaging and you already know I'm addicted to vintage fabric! Seeing your stash makes me want to go on an Oppy Marathon! hehe!

  2. I just love finding op shop treasures! Well done. Adrian's aunty works at a local one and you should see the stuff she gets for the kids! Can't wait to see the dresses. xx

  3. Treasures indeed! I recently acquired a large amount of vintage fabrics and trinkets from an estate sale and have been overwhelmed going through the boxes! The packaging is so delightful on much of it I don't imagine ever using it! Gotta find a neat way to display it in my sewing space for sure!
