I usually go to op shops alone, but as it is school holidays I had the kids with me today.
Everyone had their arms full of Salvo's good stuff. As we were standing in line waiting to pay I was fossicking through the bargain bins. Just look what I found...
It was just a calico folder - nothing special. When I opened it & saw this Strawberry Shortcake stationery I squealed with delight. I'm young enough (just) to remember when Strawberry Shortcake first hit the scene. I got her show bag at the Royal Melbourne Show that year & I had the shoelaces in my Dunlop Volleys.
My big girl said to me: "Mum, do you always do that when you find things you like in Oppies?"
Me to big girl: "Do what?"
Big girl to me: "Squeal & dance around like you need to go to the toilet!"
The thrill of a great op shop find is surely worth a little squeal & dance.
