op shop scores aka vintage illo catch up



This morning I decided to drop into my local oppie for a bit of a look. I don't go there very often as I find it a bit overpriced and not really that many great finds. I'm so glad I did today though. So many lovely things. Firstly this great little wooden jigsaw. It was actually in two bags and I thought I had 2 jigsaws. Lucky i bought both bags! A bit difficult for the kids just yet but it's a beauty.
I also got this bedspread. I 've seen this fabric popping up all over the place and really love the print. I'm thinking of using it to make some library bags for the kids and who knows what else. There's lots of it.



These are the scores I was really excited about. I missed out on the last two days of the vintage illustration meme that Pip organised but I'm making up for it today with these gems. Firstly two gorgeous books illustrated by Marcel Marlier. Mary and her friends is a collection of various Mary stories.











And 3 Heidi books that we had as children and I absolutley adored. These have been illustrated by Marie-Jose Maury.

great scores, Megsie! Love all of the books. I have some of that alphabet fabric too, have never been quite sure what to do with it- library bags sounds like a great idea.

Great finds. I love the alphabet fabric. I have some but it is already cut up into squares.
