I hope this post finds you well.
It's sunny and warm today here, just lovely.
I've been doing a bit of op shopping of late and found a few more goodies today that I thought I'd share with you.
|Johnson tea plates 10c each!....... A cross stitch cushion front for $2 (I think it would look good framed)..... A tiny Kewpie doll for the princely sum of 50c......... A beautiful crochet blanket for $6.50!|
I also got a whole stash of vintage children's books to add to my collection
|The Enid Blytons were $1 each and most of the others were 10c, with the exception of a few that were 50c and 75c.|
I have been collecting Enid Blyton books for a while, picking up the odd one here and there. I really prefer the earlier Dean and Sons editions but initially I gathered all sorts, including the odd soft cover. Now I am aiming for the full set of the 1960's, 70's editions. I have seen them in vintage shops for $7 or so but to be honest I find it more fun to collect them from op shops.
|My little collection of vintage children's books (there are other newer Enid Blyton books behind the older ones and a few of those books were mine as a youngster.|
I also found the most gorgeous version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears for 50c. There's no date on the book but I'd say it's definitely 70's, if not 60's. I love the art work
|I love the expression on daddy bear's face and baby bear is so excited his hat has fallen off!|
And look at this beauty that I found a couple of weeks ago for just $2. I was chuffed with it. It has the box with it but it's a bit worse for wear. I remember having the fisher price school house myself with those same little people in.
So there they are.... my thrifty op shop finds. Plus a whole big dose of nostalgia!
Do you have a thing for vintage children's goodies?
Enjoy your day
