Snapshot Sunday: My Fave Day.

Today was one of my favourite days of the whole year. Every year in November Oatlands has a whole town garage sale. I went a bit mad and bought a heap of things but Wow! I got some excellent bargains and some great items. I go a bit mad sometimes because I love to collect old things. I am really attracted to them and I love to display them in my home. I got a lovely old toy pram, a vintage litho toy drum, some vintage dolls for my sister Vanda, I also got her a vintage sewing basket and I got an old electric jug for myself. I was really pleased with all the things I got so I thought I would show them off on this page. Vanda thought it would be nice to put them up too so here they are. The dolls can also be veiwed on our Dolls Dolls Dolls page.


I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
