Fleamarket Finds


I dragged myself out of bed nice and early yesterday morning, picked up my nephew, and headed off to the op shops.

One of the local community centres is having a little craft market in November, so I'm going to help him to make a few things so that he can have a stall. We were in search of supplies..... but our mission wasn't very successful on that front!


I did however, manage to find this lovely vintage jigsaw set. I'm guessing that it's from the 60's or 70's?

What awesome puzzles. So lovely. I have something similar but on a car theme... they're so nice I only let the children play with them if I am sitting near by... too worried they'll be eaten or drawn on.

Probably 50's I'd say Cam. Fabulous find. And hehe at Vic.
