Vintage Finds

The tin is from the Lost and Found Market on Smith Street. It's such a beautiful tin, quite large and in excellent condition. The inside has hardly aged at all.

The tablecloth and napkin set I bought from the Camberwell markets. As you can see it is still in it's original packaging. I am currently in love with anything cross stitched and this is in as new condition...just how I like it.

Storm Pics

Just thought I would share a couple of pictures of what it looked like out the front of Cyclic Bicycles when the storm hit Melbourne last week. Pin Oak crescent got a little flooded!

You can see in the top photo that the water came right up to the doorstep. Luckily we didn't suffer any water damage, although that's not the case for a whole lot of unlucky people across Melbourne.

The second photo is looking across the road from the shop at Newmarket train station.

Thank you to Marty for the photos.

I found this vintage needlepoint in Savers late last year. I had been looking for some needlepoint for a while but hadn't come across much and nothing I really liked until I found this piece. After cleaning up the glass on the inside it turned out to be in perfect condition.
