4 i wish i was a picker

i have to dedicate this post to my bloggy friend kecia who posted this last week. i have been a fan of american pickers for a few months now, i watch it fantasizing about actually being able to do that as a job, i feel like i would be the happiest person alive if i could do that all day. this is why i love op shopping so much, it's why i get so excited when i find an absolute beauty, today was no exception, i did my northern beaches trail and first stop at mona vale salvos proved very successful. i found alice (who is moving out for the first time into a new place with her BF) a great dome, a little ceramic letter 'a', a vintage glass lidded jar for her cotton buds in the bathroom and some vintage penguins. i also found myself this outta this world faceted delight. i am not sure what its purpose is as there's no drainage for it to be a pot for a plant. who cares though, i freakin' love the guy

i also got this chunky glass ashtray from goodwill in brookvale

and finally, i got han some more penguins for her rainbow bookshelf from vinnies in brookvale. do you sydney siders have any secret op shops you love?

  1. Just ran across this shop on easy and thought of you! Love your black facet guy and that ash tray is fabulous! I love the 'hunt'...its the best feeling in the world when you discover a little treasure! xx


    1. OMG! i love that store! thanks so much for sending me there, i feel a post coming on...

  2. Aw, thanks for the shout-out. :) Totally made my day! I should have known you're a wanna be picker too! Love the finds you have here! Preparing for the move, I haven't been able to go to the thrift stores like I usually do and I'm having withdraws! Here's hoping I find some great picking adventures in Europe after the move!



  3. oh, i so wish i was a picker too, was just thinking this today. dream job, totally.
