What will be seen on August 15?

One of the best parts of this type of business is finding all the fun, pretty, quirky, valuable, one-of-a-kind “treasures” that come our way.


My favourite find of the week. Three stunning pieces of china featuring designs from the “Diary of an Edwardian Lady”.

I have come to realise that people have very different tastes in collectables. For some its the classic vintage collectors pieces which hold the most appeal. Other people enjoy adding some of the “kitsch” and quirky novelties to their decor. There are those who will only buy the most perfectly preserved items — no chips or scratches allowed. On the other end of the scale the fans of the “shabby-chic- look” seek out the rustiest and most “beat-up” odds and ends … have you seen “American Pickers” on the History Channel?


Some lovely bunnykins pieces. Charming gifts for christenings and stork parties.

Strangely I see the appeal of all these different looks. Which can be a problem because I am often tempted to keep most of the stock for myself. However, although my husband is a patient man, he might not let me stay if I invade the house with too much of my “junk”. So… I will be sharing our finds with all of you this week. The items in the pictures represent a good mix of what we will be dropping off at House of Heart tomorrow. Be sure to pop in and have a look!


This elegant yet practical piece is a teapot warmer!


I literally laughed at this assortment of goodies .. where else would you find a monkey holding a tray, a pottery angel and a really kitsch elephant salt and pepper set? Lollapalooza right?


Some oriental dishes, an Elizabeth Arden jar and some pretty Staffordshire dishes. All cost R60 each or less. Perfect little gifts for friends and family which you wont find at the “mall”


I love these petunias … they have flowered for more than 18 months! Anyway not selling those, but here is a sample of some of the lovely art glass and cut crystal pieces we have this week :)
