For Easter we had a family get together in Manilla NSW. Manilla is not very big and is surrounded by farms so the second hand store was full, really full of great stuff!
Unfortunately we couldn't bring it all home with us so I chose a couple of my favourites (being size limited and cash limited) and Nick chose a couple of his.
I have wanted on of these soda bottles for ages but could never find one and then when I started finding them they had obviously become very popular and the price (even at the local tip recycle centre) went up to match.
This one was still a bit on the high side but I haggled to $15 Nick thinks I should have gone lower but it was Easter, Happy Easter Shop Owner!
My Mason jar was also a little pricey at $15 but I loved the age lid and could see so many uses for it, I used it as a vase for Pip's bridal shower.
Love Mason Jars :-)
The cameras are both for Nick, he used to be very into his photography and then we got married and then we bought a house and then he started his own business and the photography got left behind. Maybe when we finish renovating he will pick it back up again.
In the mean time I get to have his expertise when needed and I get to use his nice camera. One day I may even learn to use it properly I also get to read all of his photography mags when I have a chance!
Wouldn't these look great displayed in our future home library or maybe his future study complete with a floor globe and big manly leather chairs?
Have you found any great vintage items lately?
Hope you are having a great week
