Cats, Dogs and Angry Birds

The kids and I ventured to Richmond last week to visit the Salvos in Victoria Street. Needless to say, the kids loved this huge shed of an op shop (and I did too). Half of the store was taken up with furniture, with the remainder full of books, CDs, clothes, shoes, toys, kitchenware and wedding dresses!

And there were also cats, dogs and angry birds....

Here is Miss Seven's purchase - a new Fur Real talking, moving cat...


Master Five chose an Angry Bird game, also still new in its box...

And I found these great ornaments...



as well as heaps of other fabulous finds that will probably end up in my eBay store.

And did I mention that Miss Three chose a wine glass as her purchase of choice? I'm not sure about this one. A teddy bear might have been a better option, especially as the wine glass had broken within 24 hours of purchase (hence no photo).

Martha's Top Tips

1. Look out for items with a red pen through the price - these are 50% off.
2. If you go on a hot day, take your own fan - there is no air conditioning and it gets very hot.
3. Take your own carry bag - the Salvos no longer give out shopping bags to customers.
