Recent op shop finds

Salvos Fyshwick had all handbags for $2, and what did I spy amongst the 90s vinyl? This! A vintage brown lizardskin handbag. Est. 1950s. The lining is leather with two elasticated pockets. After I get some reptile leather conditioner and tidy it up, the only flaw is a little crack in the underside of the handle. Bargain!

Brown lizardskin vintage handbagSalvos in Tuggeranong had a bunch of pretty glassware and ceramics. I got this oval pink ceramic plate, it looks 1950s but could be newer. There’s no “Dishwasher and Microwave safe” label on the underside, in fact there are no markings at all. Mystery!

Oval pink plateI also got these very cute space-age themed drinking glasses.

Atomic rocket themed drinking glasses - 1960sAnd these 1970s blue glass bits. They’re not really wide enough to be parfait or dessert dishes, so they’re probably brandy or liqueur glasses. They came in a shiny black PVC box with a YSL Parfum label inside (obviously a gift pack of some kind).

I also bought some very deco-looking EPNS bits, but I’ll post photos of those after I remember to buy some Silvo.
