Butter pad and knife, $5
Remember Johnson of Australia? No, me neither. But the ladies at the op shop do and they’ve put a premium on this gift set. I like the delicate flower motif on the dish but the thing that makes me truly misty-eyed is the packaging. The two-tone cardboard is unwaxed and free of UV coatings and the display holes are just that – holes. Nowadays, plastic inserts or all-over shrink-wrap are de rigueur for gift sets and they are neither necessary nor recyclable.
