Latest Finds at Coastal Vintage

Being by the sea always does wonders for the soul and so does a trip to the countryside, particularly when it has been raining. The smell of wet grass and fresh air always lifts my spirits. So while visiting family up in the Granite Belt near the NSW border, I had an opportunity to leave my two little ones with the Grandparent's and go exploring. 

And this is what I found.

A dozen or so fabulous old fishing hand reels. Half of these have already sold for a special order but this just half of the lot I managed to find! Will have more photos of the rest soon.

Amazing find - an old McAlpin's flour box. This would have sat on a shop counter and would have been filled with packets of flour for sale. It is a great find because the paper advertising was usually ripped off. This one is still intact. Would look great displayed in any home or shop/bar/cafe.

Fabulous set of pigeon holes - great for storing your favourite bits and bobs. This may have come out of an old school.

Lovely old rustic oar with metal paddle.

Sweet old oil painting of boats in a very cold habour with mountains behind. A gorgeous piece. 

Lovely old creel with original leather strap. Would have been hung over the head onto the shoulder and the creel would have sat on the hip. Lovely piece in great condition.

An amazing anchor. This was hand made by a blacksmith at the start of last century. Early 1900s. A stunning piece and very hard to come by.

These will be placed up on the website this week. If interested in any of these please email

Other finds include fishing rods from 1970's, a pair of old sculling oars, a big old industrial light, an old glass fishing float and a set of paddles. Will post these at a later date.

And finally, a photo of a vertical garden that I came across on my travels. This has inspired me to create my own when we move to a new home in the coming weeks. Looks amazing doesn't it?
