Yes, it has been excitement a plenty here in the Whizzme household. First Amelia asked me if I would like to post here (of course!) and secondly, I made it to the Salvo's designer sale. Now, if I was a more organised blogger I would be able to show you my booty from the sale (italian boots, Nolita sweatshirt, jeans, skirt, silk tie for Mr Whizzme) but unfortunately I am not that sort of blogger! Well then, what to show you first fellow op shoppers? So many finds I would like to share, but lucky for you I managed to take a deep breath and limit my first post to one item, or rather a small section of my collection of one item. Vintage patterns. I love, love, love them. No matter that I will probably never make them (especially given that most of these patterns require a woman to have not bust, I most certainly do have one), although Mr Whizzme may get one of those dressing gowns one day. The pattern section his always where I will head to first. Most of my favourite finds have in fact been in small, tucked away op shops in country towns. (In fact, in a small seaside town in South Australia I found a rare Issey Miyake pattern for the outrageous sum of $2).
added: and here you will see a real collection - oh my!
