These days my focus when I visit a garage sale or op shop is first and foremost to head to the crockery section to search for vintage plates, bowls and cups for our wedding. For a little while I wasn't really very confident that we would be able to collect enough, but now I'm 100% positive that we will get there. We are also using old silver forks and spoons and bone handled knives. I've already wrangled in all the aunties for a mass polishing day closer to the big day.
This week I also experienced the mayhem of a monthly $5 fill-a-bag sale at Salvos. It was crazy but I did manage to pick up quite a few vintage blouses, crochet hangers, pants, a jacket, some Alfred Meakin plates and some shoes. Mum and I also took a trip to a country op not too far from home. The sweetest blue and white cloud dress was my purchase of the day ... may need some attention though from my g-ma-ma to dramatically shorten the vintage masterpiece.
Here is just a snippet of my latest bargains.
