Grandma Cardi

Hello again oppers! Another cheapie, only $8 from that shop of op-ulence on High St, Kew, next to the church in. This is definitely a hand knitted nanna number, warm though a bit lop sided but I suppose that's the beauty of it. Seems we are all loving the array of op shops in that area, such gems to be found.

Asian souvenirs

Somebody around here is obviously getting rid of souvenirs of a trip to China, or cleaning out an estate of a Chinese person! There are so many Asian artifacts at the local opshops recently. I'm a sucker for anything Chinese or Japanese, so these found their way back home with me this week.

This isn't a kimono, because it only comes down past my hips. I've heard them called "Happy Coats". I was happy enough paying only $15 for this!

There were two of these books for $1.30 each, but I only bought one. This is the slip cover that the book resides in. (The photo I took of the actual book cover didn't turn out)

The pages are light cardboard, and the pictures are actually cut outs, protected under a cellophone sheet. Very unusual and quite beautiful.
