Camberwell Market

On a mild Sunday morning, myself and 5 other gals met up for coffee and muffin before hitting the many many stalls of wonderful trash and treasure!

I met Pip, Gemma, Evie, Kim and Judy - we talked craft (of course), books (of course), market hunting (of course), then we (kindov) said our silent farewells, as we cruised the outdoor aisles, scanning for something special to jump out at us.



I was very pleased with what I scored:


Some great buttons from The Button Lady for....My 'Button': $10

These two are 'holidaying in a hotel'




Two exceptionally good Irish Linen Tea Towels: $5 each





A very pretty tin for D1, in great nick: $10



Didn't buy but loved all the same: A Bluebird Sewing Machine; 1930's in original condition with original sewing cabinet, in a most beautiful aqua patina:





It doesn't have a bobbin, but uses a shuttle instead (far left of fuzzy photo)



At the very last minute and with my last $10, some chenille:

Extremely nice finds Bronwyn! Love those buttons, and that Liberty tea-towel is superb! Well done. Maybe I'll be able to come along another time too!

Hey that is my tin! The one I scorched in the oven. It is so lovely isn't it? And yours is in such good condition. Great finds.

Hi Bronwyn

I saw so many lovely things at the market that when I looked up I had lost you all. Your clematis tin is lovely - I do remember seeing it as I was wandering and thinking that it was pretty.

I found some sushi buttons:
