This is my first post on this blog so I will introduce myself and explain a little of my reasons for op shopping.
I live on the Mornington Peninsula and work from home which includes babysitting twin girls three days a week. I started op shopping for needlework supplies and found that the shops in this area have lots to offer to crafter.
Op shopping provides a way of recycling and re-using items that are still in good condition and of course there is money to be saved too.
I will show you what I pick up in the future but in the meantime the pics here show some of the things I have bought at the Salvos in Tyabb Road Mornington.
I need plenty of toys for the little girls and this is a great way to buy a variety of toys and games and best of all I can take them back to the Salvos when I am finished with them.
The toy box is beautifully hand painted and it will be good for storing my linen once the babysitting is finished.
I found this little cabinet at the Salvos in Chelsea heights some years ago. It is home made and really sweet. It usually has a tea set on the shelves
I am off to Bendigo later in the week and will let you know what I find. There are lots of opportunity shops on offer so I expect to find some real treasures.
