BSL Eltham.

I haven't been to our opshop for two weeks due to illness in the family, and today when I returned to work, I found the shelves somewhat depleted.  The manager said donations over the past week or so have been few and far between, so they haven't been able to re stock the shelves as quickly as they would normally.  I still managed to find some bits and pieces to take home.
Two DVDs $1 each - one on patchwork and the other a movie that I hadn't seen.  We watched it tonight and enjoyed it - "Fried Green Tomatoes etc".

 Interesting little bowl  $2 (made of soapstone, I'm told) with a lion painted and etched on to the surface.
 I had to buy this little cross stitch; I stitched this design for a friend years ago, and always regretted that I'd not done another one for myself.  Now I've got it!  $2.50
 A large length of brushed cotton fabric with childrens pattern.  Great for backing baby quilts.
 I actually bought this jug at Savers last week for $4.99.  Our 17 year old electric kettle finally died, and I thought I'd check opshops to tide us over before buying a new one.  I'm not going to bother looking for a new one now - this jug is a beauty!

Love that little dish. Soapstone actually feels soapy. Nice find on the Fried green tomatoes dvd.

Gina, it looks as though you managed to find some treasures.
The new kettle is good too. Why buy new when you can recycle something that is in the op shop.
