flea market finds.

a very successful week of op-shopping i must say!
first brianna and i visited many an op/second-hand/antique shop in lang lang and kooweerup. i took a ridiculous amount of photos on my phone but with a dead screen, they're more than a little tedious to get at...

later in the week, during a visit to my grandma with my mum, i went for a sneaky visit to an oppie in moe, around the corner from where my mum was taking my grandma grocery shopping.



along with a nice haul of lovely floral fabrics, a few books, some buttons and other crafty bits and pieces, i found five tea-cups, in wonderful condition, all with matching saucers, and for less than $2.50 each! bargains!!!
i have great plans for these tea-cups... involving many afternoons of high tea :D scones and finger sandwiches and cupcakes, oh my!

pop over to sophie's for more flea market finds.

ooo fab! I collect vintage tea cups, it is always interesting to see what sort of prices they go for in different oppies. Ive paid as much as $10, and as little as 50c.

Oh thank you, I've just remembered something for the last Tuesday Treasure tomorrow that belonged to my Nana. It has a gold rimmed edge too :D! I love drinking leaf tea from cups, it's much more civilised than a tea bag in a mug :P.
