Another cool find last Sat. Four old aluminum tiki torches. The poles were missing. I guess that's why the price was 25 cents!
Now I gotta clean them up.

WOW, I wish I had my camera with me last Saturday so that I could show you what blew my mind at a yard sale I stopped at. This lady had over 100 beer can crocheted hats from the 1970's that her Great G'ma had made. She said there about 150 when she gathered them up for the sale. I think they were all different and it was amazing. They were $3 each or 4 for $10. I wonder how much she would have taken for them all? I didn't ask. I only bought this one:





It looks completely ridiculous on me so I put it on my Pisco carving for a different view.


8 Foot, That is the most ridiculous hat I've ever seen. I would have bought it in a heartbeat.

I found these on etsy.com. A guy on there makes vintage looking shadow boxes and I thought this would fit in with my decor. It reminds me of the knick-knacks at Trader Sam's.

Obviously the guy with no ears didn't learn his lesson the first time! The necklace probably belonged to his wife.

This week I hit an estate sale of a retired aerospace engineer full of fun stuff like Playboy mags from the 60's, scifi paperback books, and naughty novels with titles like Coffee, Tea, or Me, but what go me really pushed it over the brink were these vintage TWA posters rolled up in the closet and a Middle Earth by Brem. He lived a charmed life.

These dead fishies (the text on the shell says "Mallorca") plus the small Vudu bottle and one of the African figurines are all from a recent trip across the border to Sweden. The baby croc was a gift from one of my uncles to my parents back when he was sailing the seven seas, guessing sometime in the early 60s - it's been hidden in one of their closets for as long as I can remember, so I asked if I could have it.

I found this lovely old credenza in a local second hand store, one of my favourite purchases this year.
I've hidden my dvd player and cable box behind one of the wooden doors.
Would love to have my TV hidden inside a cabinet hanging above the credenza, but for now the TV just sits on top of it.

The umbrella stand came from the same shop, it was too cool to leave behind. Now I'll have to buy an umbrella!

Nice find!

Here is my chunk swag lamp, some assembly required. And a cool homemade trivet made from the same pieces.

Sorry for the cell phone picture.

No, not looted while out on the prowl with the lads, a legit decommissioned street sign
from Belmont, Perth.

Picked up this awesome mid-century Homecrest rocker lounge and footstool today. It is in awesome shape. The fabric and color are reminiscent of the orange background of the Witco outrigger piece. It really hurt my wallet when I had to fork over the five dollars for it.
