I love taking a little time out on the weekend to stroll around vintage markets to search for vintage pieces. Luckily I live about a ten minute stroll from the fabulous Rozelle markets. I thought you might like to see some of my recent finds.
I have a real thing for vintage cutlery. We use bone handled knives a lot for buttering bread, for the children's meals and for cheese etc. I love the feel of the smooth worn bone in my hand and never mind hand washing them. I bought this whole lot from different vendors a few Saturdays ago, total cost about $15. Some of the knives have never been used. The carvings on the fish knives are beautiful.
We also found these little dessert spoons. Two different designs but that's fine by me. They are larger than a teaspoon but not the normal dessert spoon size. I was delighted as I always think a normal dessert spoon is too big when eating dessert anyway. We got them for $12 for the lot.
I also bought tarnished old teapot that I had styled on the white hall cabinet. It's currently full of roses from our garden. So beautiful. I took the photo below with teapot spun around to show you the speckled pink back of the rose.
As we were leaving the markets we spied this little butter dish tucked away under a pile of other things and asked the price. $5 people! I didn't even ask for a better deal. I love it and am tempted to use it as a soap holder in the bathroom.
Do you love searching markets for old junk? What's your favourite way to unwind? I think I need a few suggestions as have been feeling a little overwhelmed lately. I need to meditate again...
