Thrifted Tuesday....at the forgotten Op Shop

You may remember Big Cat and CurlyPop's excellent op-shopping adventures from last Wednesday.......

Wednesday night, after Cathy and Betsy had made their way back home, I realised that I had forgotten about one of the local op-shops. It's tucked away in a really strange little street near the back of the train station.
On my shopping travels yesterday, I decided to pop in for a visit. I found this cool old apron for $2.50....
....and a nice vintage floral sheet for $4.50. I also picked up a couple of toys for my nephews and a couple of nice summer tops for me. What fun!

I love to find a bargain! Had coffee with a friend at the coast last week, and we called in to her local oppy (as you do). Found a beautiful pair of mid-length italian leather boots for $20, nice. Got home decided to google the brand, turned out to be a London company and priced at 250 pounds - I just about fell over - I love a bargain!
