Friday Thrifting..

It feels like so long between thrifting adventures and I was so delighted to get out and about today and go exploring to some new (to me) thrift shops around Brisbane.  I was looking around for a few summer dresses and to my surprise found a sew wonderful delights.

After many years of thrifting I finally found a fondue set! It's in perfect condition and features such gorgeous details. 

Another lovely surprise was this 1960s lavender shift dress.  I just adore the colour and the faux pocket details. 

And I was feeling a little lonely without my little plate collection (as they are in storage) so to keep me company I couldn't resist a one of my favourite Mountain Wood Collection designs.

Have you been out thrifting since the festive season.  I have a feeling it's a great time to get out and about!

Much Love and Happy Thrifting

  1. I have the exact same Mountain Wood Collections design on a dinner plate! It was handed down to me from my great grandma who bought the whole set brand new in the 70s. I'm not sure what happened to the rest of the set, but I use the dinner plate for cakes because it's quite large. :)

  14. I love the fondue pot - I found one in November at a thrift but left it there as we wouldn't likely use it unfortunately and have limited space. Hopefully another vintage lover scooped it up.

  18. Glorious fondue set! It begs a question though - cheese fondue first, or chocolate?
