Another Thrifting Day with the Girls

This time it was at The Mill in Geelong. A huge place that's packed to the rafters and really organised.
Liz got beads, Keysie a mirror, Leonie some cute shirts, Emma - nothing! Jai - nothing! Me? Hmm. Some totally useless cute stuff - a 1960s baby rattle (pink and blue elephants) and an old tin with a boy in a space suit on the front. Tres cute. Here's what else we saw:

Lots of 70s glass.
Love the side-board but it was $400 which I thought was a bit steep.

Very tempted with these ($18) but I have a pretty good collection of Christmas baubles...

Inside was a pair of white leather gloves.

Who put the cookies in the cookie jar? There were loads of these Japanese cookie jars from $10 to $40. I love them but Emma isn't a fan...


Some very cute vintage cards - unused for $5 each.




I had a look inside both boxes - in great condition.

Hilarious!!


Nice buttons and plastic buckles. $20 for the jar.

Just cute.

what a great place! If i wasn't so terrified of the bridge and the geelong road I would head that way myself!
