School holiday thrifting

I managed to sneak a bit in!

A lovely mixed bag of sewing bits and bobs which still needs to be sorted. Hoping some of the bobbins and feet will fit my machine, but if not they'll be heading for ebay eventually.

I can never resist wooden alphabet blocks, and the little partitioned tray these came in is especially nice.

Love this tiny letter rack. Almost all my "nice" communications come by email and text, and this is far too nice for bills and junk mail, so I think it will be perfect for storing some of my notepads.

Hope everyone had a good week.
I'll be linking to Flea Market Finds and Thrift Share Monday.


  1. beautiful find this week, I love the little letter blocks and I have never seen a mail rack like this before, so sweet.

  2. so how many toy shop visits did that little lot add up to? :)

    those huge buckles remind me of rooting through the button tin when I was a kid - my mum made all her clothes so she must have had some funky belt buckles in her ensembles..

    those letter blocks are gorgeous! x

  3. Good pickings - I love your button finds.
    Love from Mum

  4. I got off pretty lightly, just a few quick browses around game shops and a couple of much-needed lovely Caffe Nero milkshakes!

  5. mhmmm... from type to all bits and bobs of haberdashery.... nice!

  6. Cute finds love the little letter rack!
