More Op Shop Finds to Share

In this post, I showed off the super stunning vintage dress I wore to a vintage ball. I needed to fix one of the diamante straps that had snapped, and reinforce the other before wearing it. I really didn't feel like going all the way to Queanbeyan to visit Spotlight, or Civic to visit Lincraft... so I went to the local newsagent. And they wanted $7.50 for 2m of good quality thin fabric ribbon. No thanks!!! If you're thinking what I was thinking, an op shopping trip was in order. I ended up finding some stretchy thin elastic that was perfect for the job from a fabric offcuts bin, and it cost 50c. Nice :-)

Of course while I was there, I managed to pick up a few other things. First of all, this gorgeous handmade hanging quilt and wire hanger that says 'Tea for Two', which is very fitting given that I collect teapots. It was reduced to $5, made with love and care and I couldn't resist:

To add to my ever growing mug collection (at least it's functional!), this giraffe mug for $1:

As you may have guessed, if it's quirky or unusual, I love it.

 Random toy for our cat, 50c from Kingston Oppy. Tommee Tippee feeder for $2 from Fyschwick Salvos (these are great if you don't have one - you can feed bubs whole food, eg apple - they suck or chew on it through the netting and it reduces the risk of choking. Also great for teething, you can put ice in it and let them suck on it!)

The rest of my buys are for a girlfriend who has just had a little baby boy. Such bargains from the $1 bin at Fyshwick Salvos- yes these things were $1 each and all in perfect condition!
 Sprout shirt, Babyworld leggings

Target cardigan, Sprout 2 piece bathing suit, Pumpkin Patch long sleeved onesie, Cowboy from Toy Story dress up apron thing.

And a pressie for me too- this was at the bottom of the kids clothes bin of all places, a brand new Puma exercise top for $5. Love the colours!

Linking up with Sophie's Flea Market Finds.

  2. The tea cup wall hanging is very cute!
