They didn't have any craft supplies but they did have a great book section and all books were only $1 each. I also bought 2 pairs of jeans (all jeans are $4 a pair) but they're already in the washing machine and I forgot to take a photo first. I didn't try them on, but at $4 a pair, if they don't fit, then I'll just chop them up and make them into something else!
Today's little adventure took me to Sunshine so I stopped off at The Salvos in Deer Park.
I found this big bag of buttons....it was marked $15 but they gave it to me for $8.75. They're a bit grubby so I'm going to wash them tonight and see if I find any gems. It's a bit like fossicking for gold!
As I was searching through the clothes, I noticed a lot of items that had originally had Suzanne Grae tags but they'd been cut off. I picked out a few that I wanted to buy.
I asked the lady at the counter about them and they are all new items that have been donated by Suzanne Grae. Each one has a flaw, but they are all brand new. The brown shirt has some loose stitiching which I can fix with a needle and thread, the dress needs a new zip (I can't do this but my mother-in-law can do it for me), and the red shirt is missing a decorative button at the front which I can also fix myself. There are lots of tops to choose from but you have to check for faults and also for sizing as they've removed the sizes when they've cut the tags off!
I also found this pretty little skirt which is way too small for me but I think the fabric will make a nice handbag.
