Oppy Finds

I went on another op shop daytrip in the southern highlands with my mum the other week. 
Here's what I scored:


Some chrissy decorations- it's never the wrong time of year to buy more christmas things in my opinion. I am rather sad though because I will be in America for christmas (I am going on exchange to colorado next semester) so I won't be able to use all my beautiful decorations this year :-(



A mosaic tile dish, another australiana dish for my mum, wrapping paper and some butterfly coasters. Does anyone know anything about these coasters? My mum doesn't even think they are vintage- I'm leaning towards 70s? I bought them anyway because they were only $2 and they are definitely growing on me.



A pineapple candle, an old isle of man perfume bottle, plastic palm trees and a mini shell box to add to my collection.



I love weather houses but these are the only two I have ever found in op shops (the one on the right is my newest acquisition). 



I also bought this great 60s/70s? dress from an antique booth (so it was quite expensive but I loved it too much to pass up). 


I'm linking up with sir thrift a lot and a living space :-)
