Three oppies in one day.

I had a message to do in Clayton on Thursday, so while I was over that side of town, I dropped into the two opshops in Clayton Road. At Vinnies I found this cute apron for $2.50,

and at the Salvos I found this gorgeous kimono for $6.99

and a book about paper crafts for $2.99.


Then I came back home and dropped into our local Brotherhood shop. I found a circular tablecloth for $5 - printed, not embroidered, but that doesn't matter.

We have a round table in the kitchen, and I rarely find cloths to fit, so this was a bargain! I also bought the other book in the above photo (70 cents) and this tiny little watering can miniature (30 cents) for my blue and white miniatures collection.

Great finds Gina - I love the apron! Very cute!

I go to uni in Clayton and have never been to the op shops on Clayton Rd! Are they near an intersection at all?

Fantastic finds! I drove past those two shops on Clayton Rd on Wednesday and made a mental note to go back in the next week or two.
I get such a buzz when I find new op shops that I haven't been to before. Such a buzz! I think I have an illness.

never leave an apron behind, that's my motto :)

So sweet... Aprons always tempt me because they are so cute, but I have to restrain myself as I'd never wear them, not to cook in anyway... and I have to stop buying things that need altering before I can wear them!!

Jac, hope you're reading this. The opshops in Clayton Road are both on the east side of the road. Vinnies is just before Centre Road, almost opposite a side street called Sydney Street (I parked there before I discovered I could have parked behind Vinnies!). The Salvos is about a five minute walk north of that, right in the middle of the shopping strip.

Thanks Gina! I know exactly where that is! :)
