Lovely Bargains and The Find of the Year

This week with the cleaning and sorting process well under way for the big move, the local op-shops benefited from several boxes of goodies. In return they offered some great bargain finds.

Large Pyrex dish, $12

These two little Fire King opalescent dessert bowls, 50c each.

Corning ware dish, in near new condition, $8.

Another Johnson plate ($1) to add to the growing collection, and 2m of Ken Done 'Palm Beach' fabric ($1)... I'm thinking perfect for a couple of cushions.

And this week Sophie is hosting the...

Mine would have to be this West German made typewriter bought today for only $4. I couldn't believe it. I'd been on the lookout for one for a few months now and I sure was lucky finding this gem.
It even came with its carry case and the instruction booklet.

Why not add your thrifted find of the year here.


  1. Love them all! The two Fire King bowls would be my favourite along with the Corning Ware. Sherry :)

  2. Love all of your finds but that typewriter does stand out. I love typing on a manual typewriter and find it to be rewarding like kniting and handsewing.

  3. That typewriter is a fantastic find. What do you intend to do with it? Fire King bowls are also just perfect!

  4. lovely! that typewriter is gorgeous! i have been on the look out for one for ages too and finally found on a few weeks ago... yay!
