Today we visited our 'lucky op shop'. We've taken to calling it this because whenever we're looking for something particular, we seem to find it there, and wonderful treasures too. Just look at what I found...
I bought three beautiful Australian made pure wool blankets for $6. One of the blankets says " make 'goodnight' a certainty" on it's label. Too nice to cut up, they've found a home in the blanket box. Perfect for picnicking, now that picnicking weather is officially here.
I also found an incredible woven linen table cloth for just $1, a metre of cotton school check for 50c and the sweetest piece of (repro 40s?) cotton covered with hearts and flowers and tiny dancing girls, which was also just 50c. I can't wait to make something out of that print!
Well, when I took them up to the counter, it came to $9 all up and the eftpos minmum is $10 (oh yes, they eftpos too). So... the lovely op shop volunteer suggested that we pick two toys out of the bargain bin. And yes, we found Mr Owl and Mr Teddy waiting there, just for us.
What a lucky day we had!
