FAB MARKET FINDS!!!

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter. The kids were all chocolated out by about 8am!! But had a great morning with a treasure hunt too. After that I headed to Hobarts showground markets which are on every Sunday morning & are full of all sorts. Great sometimes for a rummage & yesterday I got some great bits! First was this super cute vintage childrens lamp & it works for only $4!




Next were some vintage curtains in fantastic nik - I just love this print - I actually have a pillowcase in my stash with the same print. Some of this is definately destined for a bag or cushions..



Then a lady was clearing out her Nan's garage & I scored these fantastic teatowels which have never been used - 5 all together for only $3. The tag reads they are made in Milano. Not sure what to do with them yet - they were just too fantastic to leave for that price! I also scored a linen / crochet tablecloth but it is soaking so no pic.


Lastly there are to older ladies who have a stall every week selling patterns, trims, buttons & all odds & ends. I picked up this lovely old cotton trims for 50c / meter & they are always so nice & threw in this huge vintage button free (it is actually more of a peach colour, not brown like the photo).

Oh My! That bunny nightlight is adorable! What an amazing find! I have been looking at similar ones on ebay and they often go for big bucks, so that has to be the bargain of the century!
