There are a few things that I love collecting, Crown Lynn crockery - in particular cups and saucers, vintage napkins and retro linen tea towels. Below are some recent additions.
The saucers are from the Crown Lynn Apollo series but the cups I don't think are Crown Lynn. They have an aged look about them and are an off white colour. All have been hand painted. Quirky and I really love them.
I bought these off Trademe - via one of my favourite bookmarked Sellers who is local so is happy to drop off on her way into town.
I love a pile of vintage napkins. I'm going to try my hand at making some of these into bunting.
And linen tea towels. The Harrods one isn't an oldie but I love Harrods items so this one has snuck in.
I haven't found anything good in the op shops for ages so found these online again. I love hunting out online linen as it is cheap to post, you just need to ask about any stains or fabric tears and be firm on what your top dollar amount is. Some linens are ridiculously priced.
The Australian Birds one will be added to the Travelling Linen Stash when it heads to Australia (I understand the box is on it's way to Auckland after leaving Hamilton). It is a sweet one with a crochet border - have never seen that before and it doesn't look like it has been used.
What do you enjoy collecting?
