Continuing my slow trek north, I stopped at the Oamaru Furniture Family Store.
I'd never been there before, as it's slightly out of town, and closes early.
I found a beautiful black and white decanter, which cold be 1970s Scandinavian, for $6.
A very grey spring day with a light drizzle.
And a Bovril cup marked Bristol for $1 (I love vintage advertising ware).
A contemporary Jo Howard (a Dunedin artist) blue porcelain beaker and spoon for $1.50 (she was robbed!).
A short distance north is a second hand shop, whose name escapes me, where I found a Crown Lynn Dorothy Thorpe Pine dinner plate for $5.
It's a dark grey/blue with lilac craquelure decoration.
St. Vincent de Paul is on the other side of town.
I found a beautiful green, blue and purple possum fur and wool scarf for $2.
Possums are a massive threat to our native flora and fauna, so I don't mind wearing it.
I also pounced on a plastic Bambi plaque for 50c.
It's marked Manufactured by Harrison Jeavons & Co., Ltd., King St., Leicester. LE8 3LS, Walt Disney Productions.
OBD no. 2 and another overload of cuteness!
My final stop was the Waitaki Trading Post.
This lovely bit of turquoise, pink and gold fabric was free!
I first saw this Rorstrand Pomona casserole there nine months ago, but didn't get it then because it was slightly damaged.
Now I have done my research and snapped it up because of its gorgeous design.
It was hidden under a pile of junk and marked $3.
A red, orange, purple and green Marie plate made by Westminster in Australia, $10.
And finally for the day, a cushion cover embroidered with a stag's head and thistles for $2.
I'm thinking of framing it, as I have too many cushions.
OBD no. 3!
Coming up next time: some Timaru treasure.
