The second exciting part of my little hoppity hop over to France was going to the thrifting goldmines that are Emmaüs shops. I can't think of a better way to spend quality time with my sister.
Luckily I have two sisters who love to do a bit of rummaging as much as I do. They came up trumps when they last caught up in France, and I got truly spoilt.
After all the lovelies they'd found, to say that I was excited to visit those same shops is putting it mildly. Oh I was not disappointed... I flew across with hand luggage and came back with a suitcase full!
I got a little mountain worth of fabric, a lot of it forms this happy pile...
Some more vintage wallpaper... (Love that label! :)
A little vintage dress/tunic... It had binding on all the edges and the pocket (yes it has a pocket! love pockets on dresses!) which I had to unpick. I just need to sew some to replace it before I can wear it.
A lovely tin and eggcup... I was on high alert looking for these particular Arcopal eggcups. This wasn't the print I was looking for but they are equally lovely (I found four of them, and found one more in the Scania print which is the one I was scouring for). The lovely vase was a Christmas gift from Patricia, great colour and it goes perfectly well with my teal jug.
I also found a few more doilies to add to the 'doily cake'.
Ah the thrill of thrifting! :) There's more too, I need to gather them from around the house and take a few snaps.
