Praise the ope shope gods

Yesterday was one of those days - the ope shope gods were shining their benign thrifty light down on me. I'll let the images tell you the story.

$1 each

'The Farm Theotime' - pub. 1949 (50 sensis)

50 sensis

I have a bedspread similar to the one on top R

Dolly - 1972 (50 sensis)

 I want a Pot o' Gloss for Christmas

I really just want to scan the entire magazine for you

$3 Mental Illness oppy in Kew - to match my...

oven mitt - had this for years
 And the thing I'm most excited about:

1951 National Geographic map o' da woild - 50 sensis

 Yes - 50 sensis!

Everything except the apron is from Vinnies in Kew. They had some wonderful crockery if you're interested. It was a good day.

That Dolly magazine looks fantastic! I'd totally read a scan of it if you ever had the time to do it.

Ooooo, I'll have to pop in and check it out. I haven't been to that op shop yet.
Great finds for you! Even better prices.

The Dolly magazine is classic. Noice find.

The pricing is all over the shop - I mean that metaphorically, because obviously the shop is covered with priced goods.:) It's consistently inconsistent. The 50 cent bargains are unusual for that particular Vinnies (though generally, most of the Vinnies I'm familiar with are not Nana prices) - so I was extra excited.

I usually resist the magazine section as my house is full of magazines (seeing as I used to work at one!!) but if I had known such amazing finds as that Dolly were out there... I think I have every copy of Dolly from about 1988 to 1991 but none from that far back! That one should be in a museum, it's so cool! Love the Cottons book too. Amazing finds. Hmm, will have to think up an excuse that takes me to Kew...

That apron and those gloves are splendid (i'm a little jealous...although I'd probably buy them and never wear them..just hang them up to look nice :) )
