Jumble Sale-ing Part 2

So here's the rest of the haul from my last post (last Saturday's sale scores)

Canister action.

Beaut lamp.

You've seen the cat on the left, but these two were hanging together on the toy stall ..
Iris has a yellow/green version of that wool guy.. So now Arlo will be getting one for christmas - happy days!

Brooches - there were loads as always, for $2 each. 

YOu know I love that terrible kitsch tat.

And those candles I bought for that cute box. 

That red basket is in perfect nick. .
That $2 quilt - =love. (We have another the same)

Anyone have this game as a kid? All the bits are there but no instructions! I can't work it out. 

There was a HUGE pile of old postcards. I only got these 4. So good. They were 10c each. 

Best. Christmas. Tin. Ever.
Stoked.

Nutrimetics vanity case.
Obvs.

These cards have had a lot of play by my kids (and me) already.
Very cute.

Large heavy Meakin cake plate.
 So that's about it.
There were a few other bits and pieces. Including some gifts for some vintage loving family/friends that I can't display here! Plus I got loads of plants.
All up this lot pictured here would have been about $20.

It's been nice connecting with the blogworld again - thanks for the comments!

Happy Days!

I should have known you'd have that bread bin in orange....never thought there'd be PINK?! Would love to see a pic!! The purple one was an exciting score, as I didn't know they did them in purple........and it's the first bread bin I've ever seen, except for other peoples!!! Bizarre.
