At last I have had time to visit the op shops, well one op shop anyway. It is my usual haunt - Vinnies in Tyabb Road, Mornington.They had so many beautiful things on the shelves I felt overwhelmed.
Lots of vintage linen - the little needlepoint mat is about 12cm long and looks like a tiny carpet.
Next is an afternoon tea cloth, hand stitched and in good condition.
And then I came upon this white cloth featuring a butterfly and another doiley.
The embroidered hand stitched doiley is pretty although not well stitched.
This cross stitch mat is lovely although it is badly stained and needs a good wash.
This saucer is really sweet.
Finally this old Royal Doulton plate.
I love the fact that they have such high quality items at reasonable prices.
The staff are always so helpful and cheerful.
