Oakleigh Salvos is DANGEROUS!

Do you have an op shop that you sort of try to avoid because every time you go there you end up buying something? Yes, I know, most op shops are like that... but the Oakleigh Salvos is particularly bad, or good, depending how you look at it. I went there the other day innocently intending to browse, but ended up buying a crockery set. You know how it is.
This one was $44.99 and handgemalt (handpainted) in Germany. I can't read the brand name I'm taking an educated guess that it was made in the 70s!
**update... I neglected to mention how many pieces were in this set... please see comments as I've explained why this seems so expensive!

Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.

First Daughter, That is a nice crockery set, but $45.00? That's a lot for an opshop!

Yes I think the first comment is not really intended for most of this blog's readers..!!
And I neglected to mention that the set was like 6 dinner plates, 6 bowls, 6 side plates, coffee cups and saucers and 2 cream jugs and 2 egg cups (the others must have been broken) and I got a free casserole dish too... my photos make it look like there was hardly anything in the set!

Hah! You've saved me from myself - I saw that very set and forced myself to walk away from it. I'm glad it's gone to a good home (just not mine) :)
