Thrilled by a Thrift

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you...the biggest thrifting thrill of the year. The kind of find that elevates the heart rate and has you checking your wallet for cash before even thinking of the practicalities.

Last Saturday, we made an impromptu visit to the market on a very cold, wet and windy morning. Not expecting to find anything and almost regretting the attempt at trawling the muddy market grounds we were ready and eager (well, mama certainly was) to get home for afternoon naps. Then, I spotted this pram. A 1960's full sized pram, in incredible condition and the most perfect colour. I kept walking and tried to concentrate on other things but couldn't stop lusting over it like a little girl. "Oh Nick, that pram!".

Being the ultimate pregnant-partner-pleaser he is, Nick haggled his way to a $35 price tag and surprised me with the goods!

I am in love!

I had to re-arrange our bedroom in order to fit it in perfectly, but it was well worth the effort. It now sits next to our bed, acting as a display storage for the baby's blankets and wraps. I have visions of it becoming a beautiful prop for newborn and baby photos, and one day it can be a decor focal point in her nursery.

The biggest thrifting thrill to date!

What's the most exciting vintage piece you have ever picked up unexpectedly? What would you use this pram for if you were to stumble upon it before I was lucky enough to?
Plenty of love,
