Today is the last day of school holidays here and tomorrow we're into term two of the school year. Whilst Cohen has been on holidays we've had some fun adventures, done some fun activities and have done some treasure hunting of course.
Our fossicking around has turned up some great finds for the kids and I, all keepers for us bar one or two things. It's always great to pop into an op shop and here it's fill a bag of clothes for $5 day. Such words to an avid treasure hunter are barely a challenge, so it was easily done. This is our $10 holiday haul we all got a little something out of this lot.
The Haul: Two vintage childrens knits, one homemade vintage girls maxi dress, two hand puppets to add to the kids collection, one electronic crane science project in box unopened for Cohen, one vintage plastic covered cane woven dolls basket, one Eloise Wilkin Golden Book Treasury, one taking care of budgies book and two cardigans for myself which are modern but will mix well with my vintage wardrobe.
These holidays I've also added to my bag collection more specifically my vintage tooled leather bag collection with the arrival of a bag I bought from fellow vintage lover Nelly (I'm sure many of us remember Nelly), this used to be her personal bag for twenty odd years or more. It's taken my collection to five now.
By extension I think it's possible I will start an offshoot of my tooled bag collection with a recent when at the local auction here, with the win of this late 1960's cow hide shoulder bag. The bag is in perfect condition and was an epic win at $2.25, and is an absolute keeper.
Shoes are also a recent find for $3 and are modern but will be a perfect fit in my vintage wardrobe.
It's been nice to add a few things to my personal collections in recent weeks, it's not often that happens as much these days as I find my tastes and more so my standards changing.
