New to the WAC this week....

Lots of new goodies this week at the WAC. 

Large vintage crucifix
Lovely glassware

This one dates from the Second World War and was used in the repatriation office. 
Lots of new old soft drink bottles.
Cheeky Mexican

Plane cigarette lighter
Groovy speed skates
Old boxes and crates
Enamel industrial light shade. Great mid size. 
I really like this card box. It has a Renaissance theme which appeals to me. I can imagine in my Arts student, Uni days, wanting this. 
Even the interior is lovely.

Silky Oak stool with nice heart detail on the ends.

The stool is sitting on an unusual sort of preparation table that has a shelf underneath. 

Cuckoo clock
Groovy orange step shelf, perfect to jazz up a kids room.
Lovely old jars with glass lids perfect for collections of shells, buttons or lollies.
And I am very brave...coming up below......
....lovely West German Floor Vases!! Three of the beauties. I know,why am I not keeping them ? Well you know I have so many (sigh) and my mother taught me it was rude not to share. I love the caramel colour of the middle one...I love it so much I could just lick it. ( Don't worry potential buyers, I haven't actually licked it. ) Hope you are all having a good week. The weather is starting to cool down here in Brissie and the days are just glorious. 


  1. Can't believe you're letting go of some Germans, LOL!!

  2. Laughs. Thoughts of you licking the merchandise ...

    I'm a big advocate for speed skates. Got a pair for my 10th birthday, and as I grew out of them Dad'd buy cheap footy boots from K-mart. He's saw off the tags and screw them onto the wheels and off I'd speed! If you had two pairs, we could 'tandem'.

    1. Your Dad is so clever! I can just imagine you zooming around.

  3. some lovely new goodies ... finding some new homes soon I hope :) le

  4. You find the best things! I need to come in when school goes back. I hope your baby is feeling better. I think your comment on the fridge situation has tipped me over to 'yes'! Just sayin' A-M xx

  5. The skates bring back good memories and thankfully no broken bones. The 70's were good fun :)
    The old typewriters are fun too. Have a lovely weekend x

  6. What fantastic treasures! Love those typewriters! X

  7. Hey! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so

  16. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
    of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you
    could space it out better?

  19. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick
    heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen
    in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.

    resolved soon. Kudos

  20. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website. It's simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you've done a awesome job
    with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me
    on Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!

  22. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run
    into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

    My site has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd certainly
    appreciate it.
