Op Shop Treasures

I found some exciting treasures this week at my regular op shops, a couple of new op shops and the Saturday garage sales. There were 5 garage sales within walking distance of our house this week and Maya and I enjoyed a nice sunny morning walk hunting for treasures. My favourites this week are these beautiful vintage skittles and cute wall shelf.Unfortunately there was one skittle missing, but the sellers at the garage sale think that they will find it in their clean up. They have my phone number so hopefully I hear from them. Fingers and toes are crossed!

Another favourite are more floral sheets to add to the collection. I can feel a quilt a-brewing…

And yet another favourite from this weeks treasures are these books. Kaffe Fassett was a huge inspiration for me back in high school – actually he still is very inspirational and I love his work. I cannot believe I found this book for only $3.

The other two books are from the 1960’s and 70’s. I love these birds from The Stitchery Book.
And these softies from the Handicrafts book.

Hope you all had some great finds this week too and I’m looking forward to visiting
Her Library Adventures to check them out!
