My final op shopping spree for the holidays was around Flemington, Ascot Vale and Essendon. On my first visit to Essendon the Christ Church oppie was closed so I had to venture back another day. Very glad I did as this has probably become my new favourite op shop! Lovely staff and very reasonable prices :o)
Wine decanter/caraffe - Brotherhood of St Laurence Moonee Ponds
Glass serving spoon 20c - BOSL
SPORKS! I've always wanted some of these and for 30c a piece I couldn't resist!
The orange tablecloth was a bargain for $2 at BOSL and the pot holder matched it nicely I thought. It's almost like a cross between wool and hession and will be great for winter dinner parties.
The 'Historic Tasmania' linen cloth was $3 from Vinnies in Ascot Vale and the mustard NZ tablecloth (large) was $5 from Christ Church in Essendon.
vintage dress - 6.99 Salvos Flemington
Soup Mugs 20c each - CC Essendon
Books $2 and 50c - CC Essendon
My favourite page from Home Handicrafts ;o)
Blue knit $4 CC Essendon
Yellow knit $4 Broadmeadows Care Bargain Centre Moonee Ponds
There was a little op shop in Russell Street Essendon, run by the Girl Guides or Scouts I think? Does anyone know their opening hours/days as they didn't have anything in the window and it's not on the spreadsheet.
So anyway, no more monster posts from me anymore (well, for a little while anyway) as I'm back at work now, but I'm sure I won't be able to resist a few little sticky beaks here and there! Happy hunting everyone! :o)
