That is such a great article - thank you for sharing. I particularly love the pogo stick - that made me laugh and visualise my own Dad!

I'm glad you cut to the chase for me ... the weekend Age is still sitting in a neat pile and unread!! What a great article. The bit about the pogo stick gave me a good laugh too.

That is a really good read. Thanks for sharing, and of course the pogo stick part was a delight.

Thanks for sharing the article. I love op shopping and look forward to it as its a wonderful adventure, full of the promise of finding a great bargain. As children my parents instilled our love of op shops in us. When we get together we still go op shopping - we land in TAS, go straight to the HUGE op shop in Launceston and go for it. I have found some great things there and drag them all back to Sydney.
Think I may go visit some local stores tomorrow - I recently had a dream that I found a Grant Featherstone chair and foot rest at the local op shop... It may happen.

What a great article. I've always enjoyed Op Shopping, but often stick to the fabric sections (although a couple of weeks ago I happened across the most gorgeous top, that I now get heaps of compliments on!!!). But now I'm inspired. As soon as the kids and I are well again, we're hitting the op shops for some summer clothing and some new (old) crockery!!!

Kacked myself when I got to the inexplicable pogo stick line. What a cracker!
You know, the teeny tiny selfish little bit of me wishes that op shops weren't so popular now... then they wouldn't be starting to be so bare as they are now.
Ok, throw the tomatoes now...
