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 ...
two vintage scrabble boards ($6.00 for the pair) - I'm going to do something like this for my table settings at the wedding
adorable vintage Howard Showers polka dot dress - $5.00 at the Salvos
Country Road jeans, Lorna Jane pants, Bonds leggings - about $7.00 for all
Lorna Jane and Running Bare gym tops - $3.50
some more items for my (omg do i have a) Pyrex collection
an adorable vintage jug - thanks Nigella for the idea! $2.50 from Vinnies. Think I'll be enjoying some Pimms out of this at my engagement party next month!
One Tru Love ruffle dress - $3.00 from Lifeline
Peace Angel maxi - $2.50 from Vinnies.
The very top suitcase and an adorable vintage Akubra - $8.00 for the two, again from Vinnies.
I did quite well didn't I?
