I had to go over to Burwood today, and took a friend with me for the ride. I completed my original message, and then asked Friend if she wanted to check out the local opshops. Silly question really - she had brought half a dozen bags with her, just in case..
The first one was in a side street off Riversdale Road. I can't remember if it is a Lions opshop or not, but it is not one of the big ones. Friend brought some lovely hand painted china (after vowing that she wasn't going to buy any more because she had nowhere to put them). Right!
Here is what I bought:
Two ties for 50c each.
Stunning framed piece of Goldwork embroidery, $5.
Beaded necklace, 50 cents
And this piece of lace was thrown for free...
From there we drove over to the RSPCA opshop near the corner of Burwood Highway and Middleborough Road. Friend went off the rails here, as it was her first visit, and they do have lots of goodies, although a bit more expensive than most oppies. She bought clothes, a book and a handbag. She might have got some other stuff too...I lost track. Cell, if you are reading this, the RSPCA shop has STACKS of Better Homes and Gardens mags!
Here are my purchases:
Plain white dish in three sections, for mixing oil paints. $2
Japanese 'play handkerchiefs', 50 cents each.
Books $3 each (ouch)
Neat animal fabric - under napkins. 50 cents
