An out-of-town friend was in town this weekend, and it's tradition when she's here, that we meet up for a spot of Trash and Treasure market trawling followed by brunch.
Imagine my surprise to find a copy of Nutshell News on a stall at the Woden market:
(Imagine my further surprise when I looked up and spotted a woman with a pile of Dolls House World magazines and a box of 1970s Lundby furniture! Unfortunately she had just finished buying them. But fortunately it was Ann Dowdall, wife of James, so I was pleased they were going to a good home.)
I bought a box of beautiful bits for $5, particularly for the typewriter and the box of cutlery:
I also bought the vintage TV for $5 and paid $2 for the basket on the floor and the sea urchins on top of the TV. The blue Jean furniture, the grey cabinet and the Playmobil figure came from a $3 bucket of plastic toys found at the Jamison market.
(Total cost for everything in the picture, plus many more bits, was $15)
Also spotted this morning was this vintage Tonka camper van (parked, you notice, outside of an almost identical full sized version):
But since the asking price was $180, it stayed right where it was...
