Flea Market Finds with Cass Can Sew.....


Hi there fellow vintage lovers! My name is Cassandra and I am addicted to Vintage! I blog over at Cass Can Sew, where I share my love for sewing, thrifting and everything in between. I love nothing more than finding vintage linens and clothing and refashioning them with my trusty sewing machine to give them a new lease on life. At Cass Can Sew, you'll also find vintage inspired sewing tutorials and patterns for little ones, that will make your ovaries tingle!

I'm feeling very honoured that Trudie has invited me to be a guest here at My Vintage Childhood today. I look up to Trudie as one of the true Queens of Vintage! Clicking over to read stories of vintage fashions and wonderful Oppy finds here at My Vintage Childhood always puts a smile on my face.

Today I'm here to share with you all my best vintage finds for 2012. Trying to narrow down my top 3 finds really was a hard task! I've really been blessed by the vintage fairies this year. If you already follow me at Cass Can Sew, you've no doubt seen these beauties before in my "Thrifted" posts.

These vintage cannisters would have to be one of my all time favourite finds, ever! I came across these at a local church jumble sale and fell in love immediately. When I discovered the price tag of $5 for the set, I was smitten!
When I first shared these via my facebook page, Trudie went crazy for them! In the new year, we are hoping to catch up in real life for the first time. I'll be gluing these cannisters down to the bench so that she can't leave with them!

Every time I walk into an Op Shop, the first thing I do is head straight for the linens section. I have a huge passion, obsession even, for turning gorgeous vintage sheets and pillowcases into clothing. My best vintage sheet finds this year were found in lovely little country Op Shops. Anyone who is a dedicated Op Shopper knows, that the best finds come from small towns.
When I come across Holly Hobbie designs and anything similar, my heart sings. I found these 3 darlings in the small town of Woodford, QLD on a recent Oppy Adventure.
I also found myself having heart palpitations when I spotted this amazing Sesame Street Sheet! Music makes up a big part of our home, so coming across a print with the Sesame Street Band was very fitting. I haven't been able to bring myself to take to this one with scissors and needle yet!

And I couldn't possibly sign off, without a mention of this cute little vintage potty chair that I picked up for an absolute steal!
It's Hannah's go to chair now. It comes with a little table that attaches to it. Little eats her morning tea and lunch on this chair, while watching her favourite episodes of Peppa Pig. She's also getting cheeky and thinks it's fun to stand on it now and dance!

If you'd love to read more about my vintage addiction, I'd love for you to stop by at Cass Can Sew! Fellow vintage admirers are always more than welcome! You can find me often playing on Facebook and Twitter too.

Thank you Trudie for inviting me to My Vintage Childhood, it's been a pleasure.

  1. Well hello there Cass. Does this mean that Trudie has first dibs on those cannisters should you ever want to pass them on. You know how much I love them. LOL Just kidding. You girls have got the gift of picking up bargains, that's for sure.
