more junk shop treasure

i picked up this sweet little table and chair set from my favourite, can't-seem-to-walk-past-without-checking-out-what-potential-treasures-are-out-the-front, junk shop. they are probably the most beaten up, weathered kiddyliwink furniture to be found in greater melbourne, but they've got spunk, no? and that colour.. let's be honest, that's what sucked me in. 

p.s. in case you're wondering, the artwork is by nicholas goodwolf. we bought it from pg printmakers gallery in fitzroy, but i believe he is represented by a few different galleries.

update: the address of my favourite little junk shop is on the corner of ballarat & simpson st, yarraville.

    Great find!

    Came across your blog only recently - thanks for a great read.

    PS. I'm also admiring your banner/blog heading...Am new to the game so haven't quite got that design feature sorted (or worked out!) yet.

  6. Score! What a great find. Yarraville I presume?! We went house hunting down that way the other day and came home sans house but with a boot full of op shopped goodness.
    I wouldn't be able to resist the colour either. Nor the angles.
