I don't often pop into op shops these days, but I was dragged (willingly, of course) into Oakleigh Salvos this afternoon by my son.
There I found 15 balls of Perle 8 thread for $8.00. Moments earlier I had been contemplating buying Perle 8 thread from the nearby wool store for $2.50 per ball. Clearly my son was onto a winner!
