First Op Shop Finds of 2011

The Christmas break was excruciating as the one and only Vinnies in town was shut down for a couple of weeks. At least the many Lifelines about town were open for my pleasure.
All the op shops are now open and are brimming with stock!
I've converted a couple of my work girlfriends to the lunch time op shop visit and we were lucky to visit Vinnies for half price day. I got a few things and returned on Saturday for more half pricing with mum. We did a few of the shops around town and it was a very fruitful exercise! Here's what I got ...
