Thrift Shopping

You can watch how I DIY’d the owl here

I love a good market just the idea of finding something unique at a good price just makes me happy. For a long time I didn’t know what my ‘thing’ was, some people like hiking some people like reading and recently I realised that I really enjoying going to markets. There is just something about crafted things, interesting food that brings a smile to my face so when I heard about the Side Street Studios garage sale I just knew that I had to go and I am so happy that I did.

 I picked up these bargain beauties:


TOP: One of the first insta camera’s that should still work if I can source the film but nonetheless I love the design and box as a decorative item – R50

MIDDLE: Brown suit case, when I saw this I just knew that I had to have it. I had one of these as a child and as all children do at some stage I “ran-away” with this packing my essentials i.e Snacks and Barbies. – R10 (yes I know, what a deal I just love when people don’t try and rip you off – best feeling!)

BOTTOM: Blue leather suit case, again when I saw this I had to have it. I actually collect vintage suitcases they are perfect for storage and decor. I envisage a stack of them by a plain wall one day in my fantasy apartment. – R20
