Mother’s Day at Dirty Janes

Here are some of our favourite finds from the market, perfect to spoil Mum with this Mother’s Day. If you’re still looking for something special, you’re sure to find it at one of our 60+ market stalls or at The Potting Shed.

Your Vintage Occasion Tea Salon will be open Mother’s Day, serving High Teas with rose petal and lavender sweets made especially for Mum!  The Tea Salon is open from 10-4pm, the perfect place to celebrate then enjoy a spot of shopping afterwards!

French Beans

Here’s a little ‘still life’ from Shop 23 – ‘French Beans’.  Brown glass flagons $16 each; bread basket $28;  cafe clock $78.  Below oval oil painting in gilt frame of a young girl feeding birds $110.  This could be the beginning of a collection of gilt framed pictures to hang as a ‘story’ to brighten up a dreary hallway or cosy up a bedroom wall.

A very beautiful portrait

This framed print would melt even the hardest heart. A wonderful study by Arthur John Elsley, well known for his portraits of children. This is not her, but his own daughter Marjorie often posed for him. This lovely treasure was saved from the rafters of an old wool shed in Goulburn. Take it home and love it every day. You’ll find it at Shop 40 … along with many, many other beautiful things. Happy hunting! Jane x
