Vintage Finds

Great vintage finds this week. They will be at my Open House sale in October or will find their way on to my stall at the Vintage and Handmade Fair.

2 vintage doll's prams. 1940's and 1960's.

Vintage yacht (I cannot resist these!)

A vintage Stanley (he might have to stay with me!)

A vintage toddler toy

The sweetest little jigsaw puzzle

A Mary Quant scarf

A fabric and raffia cottage style tea cosy

and a lovely wooden ironing board.

I'd definitely have to keep the Stanley Dog, he's so lovely. I really like the Mary Quant scarf the colours work really well. I can imagine people charging through the doors at your Open House sale.

My sister and I had a full-size pram like that when we were small - and I was able to use it again for my children. They made things well in those days! And that jigsaw seems a bit familiar ...

Katie said... again! Just wanted to let you know that I posted something to you today (hope it reaches you soon!) It's an invite to something (and I'll say no more...don't want to ruin the niceness of getting post!)

I'm also working on my article for Sew Hop at the moment featuring your wonderful Art Deco fabrics...will let you know when it'll be published (have asked that a copy be sent to you) Katie x

I love the thatched teacosy ! But since when is my ironing board vintage , or am I slowly becoming vintage myself ?!

About me said...

Oh I've been after a vintage wooden ironing board for years! I allowed myself to be persuaded to have a moden one when I got married and have regretted it ever since.
