Thrifty finds


Two beautiful glass containers both Made in Belgium.





I was lucky enough to have a spare few hours up my sleeve yesterday and instead on working on some new pieces I took myself out in the crisp, cool Melbourne morning air to a few local op-shops (thrift stores).

I came across a few beauties. The first few pictures are of these gorgeous containers in perfect condition. Both made in Belgium, both found in different shops, and now they both sit together on my shelf.

I found this adorable jewellery box that I'll pass down to my daughters when they're a little bigger.




I picked up four vintage necklaces that I'm thinking to pull apart and remake them into pieces for my shop, but I haven't fully decided upon this idea yet.

Have you found anything special in op-shops lately?
