That's why I was pleasantly surprised when I stopped by the Busselton Markets on a recent trip down south and found TWO really cool items!
The salt and pepper shakers cost $5. With the amount of time that would have gone into slicing all the wood and putting it together, I felt like I was cheating someone with the price!
The pot trivets were hidden away in a corner underneath a bowl. I got a flash of the teal and pink combination and just had to have them!
Photographed together here, they look great together with the woody tones. The saucer is from a vintage French tea set that my dad got me.
Here’s one last photo of the trivet in action in my lounge. The black candlesticks on the right were another thrift shop find in a Wanneroo store. So cool and very me!
What are your thrift store bargains?
(The Busselton Markets are open on the first, third and fifth weekend of each month, and are located right on the foreshore).
