Lisa, the owner of the shop was really lovely and helped me pick out some prints and gave me some ideas for use of the oilcloth.
I picked up some large coffee tins from Reverse Garbage in Marrickville for $1 each (Reverse garbage is like a treasure trove of discarded things from warehouses just waiting to be upcycled!) and covered them with the oilcloth using double sided tape. these could be used to store pasta etc as they're air tight.
Here are some pictures of the process:
