Snowy Mountains Vintage

On our recent trip to the Snowys to visit our good friends, I went into the nearest town, Tumbarumba, and checked out the oppys and old wares shop. I am pleased to report that I struck gold, again!

You may remember my love for kitchen canister sets in this post, and I picked up these Nally canisters on our trip. That's three sets now - dare I call myself a collector?

Not a full set, but the pastel colours won me over. The flour one has been well loved and seen better days, but the rice one is pristine and gorgeous - my favourite of the three.

I've been wondering about the colours of the missing tea and coffee canisters. Maybe a lilac? Certainly a yellow.

A big shout out to the lovely ladies in the Tumba St Vinnies - they were very kind and helpful. I picked up some gorgeous vintage sheets there.

Hello to anyone reading in the Tumba / Corryong / Tooma / Batlow / Adelong / Tumut region. We love your part of the world! And the thrifting there is excellent!

Linking up with flea market finds today.


  1. awesome! Love the canisters and especially love the sheets... funny thing is I picked up retro sugar and rice tins at a market in the weekend. :)

  2. I'm a sucker for canisters - its not an obsession to have four sets, right? Right??

  3. I still love those Rice canisters. And it's turquoise too!

  4. Those canisters are gorgeous, such fun colours!

    I can remember living in Wagga Wagga about 20 years ago and going to Adelong and Tumba. So many lovely little shops and great finds. That vintage sheet pattern looks very similar to one I just picked up here in Brisbane. I got a single flat sheet and a pillow case. It was vintage Sheridan. Great finds.
