Thrifted things

I find it nearly impossible to not buy anything during a trip to the op shop. The charm of thrifting, for me, is not ever knowing what I'll find. It's so nice to get a nice little surprise, or 2 or 3 or 4? Yes, the suspense thrills me so (such is my exciting life).

Here are some of my latest thrifted things:

I don't often see Wedgewood in a op shop, so I grabbed this sweet little bowl as soon as I laid my eyes on it. Also, I needed the doily for a cake decorating idea. It worked a treat and I can't wait to show you what I did!

An ivory lambswool cape. The cute little button details caught my eyes and I'm so glad it did. It's soft and warm and not at all scratchy - perfect for throwing over a top in the chilly autumn mornings.

A creamer jug. Not that I needed another one, but seriously, I couldn't say no. Anything with gold and a rose and decorative swirls of the fine china variety absolutely calls out to me.

Have you been thrifting lately?

I've never been thrifting before actually but I don't think I have the patience for it...

Miss K said...

I haven't been thrifting for a long time... ever since I started my minimalistic living two years ago. Nice finds though! You have an eye for beautiful things :)

Thrifting?? What's that?!

Why yes of course I have... too much really if I was to be honest.

I adore your finds, such pretty things.

I love that the things you thrift are just clothes. I thrifted a puzzle on the weekend, quite possibly the last thing I thought I would pick up!

These are absolutely gorgeous! I never have that much luck when going to thrift stores to find these kind of beautiful things.

Really lovely! ( I would bake a crusty lemon pie and photograph it on that beautiful plate of yours ;)

They're all great finds, especially the cape and the creamer. I managed to visit the tip shop the other day and walk away empty handed. I'm not sure how I managed that!

Joana said...

These are adorable. I love dainty cute things and your choice of buys is impeccable (for me).

Adeline said...

if there were proper thrift stores or even flea markets in s'pore and I had the space... i'd go nuts. lucky girl you are :)

Mica said...

Love that cape!

I haven't been to an op-shop by myself for a while, last op shop item I bought was curated vintage from the AWL opshops sold through their thrifty kitten facebook store. I don't have much luck in op-shops, nice to browse their hand-picked selection!

Luna said...

I much prefer the Wedgwood designs of the past to today's modern ones.

I had a good chuckle as I've been looking for a wooly cape too. Small world :)

I can honestly say, I have 3 sugar + creamer sets. So I understand.

Well... said...

Oooh, I know, thrifting is so much fun. Looks like you found some cute items! :)

SO pretty! Love all of it!

Stephanie said...

Great finds! I have a question that may sound really stupid, though. What is an op shop? Is it basically a thrift store?

I've donated tons of clothes to the local charity stores. I do hit some of the thrift stores in London when I've got time. I've located incredible stuff in the past - Hermes, Chanel, Alaia.... It's a hit and miss though.

You found some lovely items. Thrifting is not a particular skill of mine sadly. I don't really have the patience or eye for it.
