Hubby's family have been clearing out his Mum's house which has been sold. Much of the contents have gone to auction, so on Sunday my husband's niece and I sorted through what was left and filled up my Hatchback with bags of stuff for opshops. I dropped it all at Savers in Greensborough today about 11.30 am, then parked the car and went to browse. I was with my opshop lovin' friend again, and first we went to the Brotherhood shop behind Savers, where I spent the princely sum of $1.25 on these two items:
I can't resist things with peacocks, especially when they only cost 75c.
Couldn't resist this cat either. He's a bit knocked around, but for 50c I'm not going to argue!
Then we returned to Savers, and spent over an hour there, as well as about a hundred dollars between us! I was amazed to see some of MIL's stuff on the shelves already - gee they were quick to price it and put it out on sale!
Here is what I took home for about $18.
A dear little cup to make another pincushion. $1.
Two folders to file stuff in, $2 and $1 each. And a roll of wrapping paper for $1. It's got motorbikes on it and will be useful to wrap the MOTH's next birthday gift.
A pair of brushed cotton pyjamas in a light aqua colour, $5. This pic doesn't do them justice.
Dressing gown for $8. It is brand new, and just what I've been looking for to replace my old Target gown which is looking very tired after about 10 years of winters!
