I bought this for my husband from a garage sale last year
Trafalgar Trading Company Marrickville NSW
have a look inside...
isn't it wonderful...well my husband loved it and so do I.
I found it hidden away in a back shed (sheds are usually great places to find treasure...some of our best stuff has come from dirty, dusty, cobweb filled sheds!) It was filthy but cleaned-up beautifully.
I love the aqua labels.
(Spirit of Sal Volatile sounds deadly...can anyone tell me what it was used for?)
all of the containers still have some of their contents
inside which I think is rather special.
Here's another old first aid kit...just as nice but sadly empty
Our plan is to hang them in our bathroom with an amazing old glass and steel surgical cabinet we bought at the swap meet for twenty dollars. I promise to show you a pic of this because it really is too cool for school. And one of our best bargains to boot!
FYI our bathroom at the moment is hideous...there IS NO
other word for it! Thankfully it shouldn't be too much
longer before we have a nice one.
(I will show before and after pics when the time comes)
I want to end today with some Gardenalia, not pretty and a bit rough around the edges but still well loved by me...
I can't help loving a concrete garden ornament!
Thanks for looking even though this stuff may not really be your cup of tea...lucy violet will be pretty again tomorrow. Here's today's tea towel
this is for you "beergarden"
(and anyone else who likes a beer)
p.s. I have just been told by my friend Georgina that Sol Volatile was used for fainting...a quick whiff under the nose and you'd be as right as rain. Apparently every Grandma and Mum carried it in their handbag...back in the olden days. Ha!
