Our Brotherhood of St L. opshop had some nice things when I dropped in there yesterday. An interesting handmade book. The cover looks like it is made with leaves front and back with a laccquer coating, and a stick of cinnamon, although there is no aroma. The pages are handmade paper, and there is no writing or printing on them.
This shirt is a Mens size XL. The lady behind the counter said 'That's too big for you, dear' to which I replied 'yes I know, but I won't be wearing it. I'm cutting it up for patchwork - look at that terrific fabric!'
Speaking of fabric, I was over in Malvern today, so I visited three opshops within walking distance. A small independent shop in Wattletree Road, and in Glenferrie Road I went to Vinnies and the Salvos. Both of these shops are VERY upmarket - fabulous window displays and lovely stock inside. I bought three pieces of cotton fabric for $2 each at the Salvos (not worth putting a pic on here).
