Brunswick Bargains

Hi all! Here's a couple of bargains I forgot to mention in my last post. Both of these were from Vinnies on Sydney Road. The telephone table was only $15, in great condition - I've had my eye out for one of these for ages. I've actually used it a couple of times as a temporary laptop table - it's perfect, and very handy as it's so lightweight.

Leaning against the wall behind it is a desktop ironing board which cost me the princely sum of $3. It's perfect for my newly-setup craft room and I already use it constantly.

On a different trip to Moonee Ponds we popped into the Uniting Care shop where the Style Consultant discovered these amazing vintage men's shoes for $15. They are in as-new condition and absolutely cool.

On another note, I recently discovered a Lighthouse shop on Geelong Road in West Footscray - I think it is only new, I think there used to be a Salvos in the same spot. Next time I go I will take a couple of pictures of the shop. They have quite a lot of stock at very good prices - a lot of $2 racks, plus a couple of racks of '$1 each or fill a bag for $5'. Some great pieces of furniture, this morning there were a couple of awesome green vinyl armchairs (that already had sold stickers on them!)

Happy shopping everyone!

I've had telephone tables like that all my adult life - never thought about any other place of having the phone! But the idea of using it as a laptop table is neat.
