Finds from a day with Dad

From the super descriptive title I'm pretty sure you can guess what this post is going to be about! During the week I went for a country drive (well, we were only about an hour away from the city) with my dad and, because we don't see each other very often, he treated me to a couple of things I saw on our day out. I had some loose change of my own so picked up a few things, as well. They're from various op-/secondhand/vintage shops from along the way (a couple at Mannum and one...somewhere else that I honestly don't remember).

This dress is very lovely but too big for me so it might  make its way into my shop (which I've been sorely neglecting - I'm hoping I will get an update done either later today or sometime tomorrow so keep an eye out, though it'll be a little while before this makes it into the shop).

A mohair blend coat from the 1960s in a really great shade of green!

I love the double row of buttons.

And the goodies I bought for myself! There was a bag like this in blue, as well (which had nicer handles) but I liked the way the red looked and thought it might be more serviceable for me so I just got this one.

I'm sure these bangles aren't any older than the '80s but they're cute and only cost me $1 all up.

This little camera dates to 1971 - I have to run a roll of film through it to see how it works but it looks to be in really nice condition. Another one for my collection! So, it was a fairly successful day and a very nice drive, to boot.

Love,

  7. Ohhhh my, what delightful finds. I love everything, but am especially drawn to the twisted bangle. I've coveting one to no end now. Thank you for sharing these terrific pieces with us, sweet Andi.
