School Holiday Op Shopping

I love Op Shopping in the School Holidays, as the shops seem to have lots of kids and teens finding wonderful things, and that always makes me happy.

Granddaughter and I ventured out yesterday  to find a few treasures, as she wanted more images for her Eleven of Hearts  blog.

First stop in Ashburton at the Community Services shop by the railway netted her a few 'hearts' and for me these 3 great Tea Towels.  I love Linen Tea towels and to find not ONE but THREE brand new ones was a real bonus.

puppies from the Guide Dog Association,  Wombats from the RSPCA, and autumn tone fruits from the Royal Horticultural Society UK.  a neat haul.

We then went across the road to St.Vinnies in Ashburton, and on to the RSPCA in East Burwood. Gr'daughter found more heart shapes, I just enjoyed the coffee !
