Pickings are always great at the Salvo's after a holiday weekend so I walked up there to be the first in the doors at 9am
a sweet milk and sugar bowl James Kent Staffordshire "Old Foley" only $1.99
Gorgeous Royal Albert "American Beauty" set , which I have 6 pieces of from my Ex Mother-In-Law $5.99
The favourite find- A Royal Crown Derby"Derby Posies' pin dish $1.99
Who is doing the pricing on these expensive pieces?
Also a couple of expensive brand shirts for Hubby, a large glass jar and a Burberry Blue Label Bag (jury is still out on whether it's real or fake)

Many moons ago I spotted an E-Bay Seller selling a bulk lot of antique bedlinen for cutting up for craft.
The were a German immigrants trousseau from the Barossa Valley and all handmade . O...M....G....CUTTERS!!!! I could see they were stunning ...and I had to rescue them from the scissors and amazingly I got them for a small amount.
This is a couple of them...2 covers for eiderdowns, and the cotton lawn is the silkiest most beautiful I have in my collection. The monograming is stunning( and very little damage anyway)
I was thrilled to own them . Needless to say I have checked the sellers item every week and picked up a few more nice collectable pieces over the years

A very enjoyable day on the public holiday. We drove up to the Adelaide Hills and into Mt Barker to visit the breeder of our darling Russian Blue, who has about 4 litters at the moment......oh it was so hard not to bring another home
We had lunch in Balhannah and drove to Strathalbyn to search through the antique shops
Things were a bit expensive but I found this nice old jug from Stoke-on-Trent for $8
