Ok, Ok, I know it's supposed to be 'Thrift Tuesday' but I was too busy on Tuesday so I went thrifing today instead, in Ballarat, while hunting for new kitchen taps.
Found quite a few goodies, including a whole lot of vintage children's books (my main passion!). These included a 1968 Tina annual (that's the year I was born!), Peter the Pup illustrated by Gilbert Delahaye, and a dozen other cuties. Also old patterns and handicraft books and some choice vintage linens. And a vintage suitcase for Angela . I found this gorgeous 1950s Junior Scrabble Set in my favourite shop, Joyce's Junkatique.
Joyce has owned her store on Main Road, Ballarat, for forty years. She used to live there too, but the junk has taken over the three-story old building to the point that she now has to live elsewhere! Joyce's 'junk' is piled up to the rafters in every room and it all looks a bit chaotic at first, until you look closely when you will see it is all quite ordered. And Joyce knows where everything is, just ask. I didn't find any kitchen taps, though.
