Our blog has really come alive! It is great to see so many people on here with their bargains from all around Melbourne :-)
I don't get to Kew very often but as I was over that way today, I had to visit at least ONE of the six or seven opshops along High Street! I chose the Elderly Citizens shop because it is the only one I hadn't been to before, and it was well worth the visit. A real old fashioned oppie with lots of rummaging potential, so if you are ever around the High Street area, they are open Tuesday to Friday 10 am to 4 pm and Saturday morning. They are at 533 High Street Kew, opposite the cemetary, which is a fair way back from the Kew Junction. The other opshops are along the main shopping area near the junction.
Here are a couple more items I've bought at our Brotherhood shop recently, that I'd forgotten to photograph.
The following photos are of Egyptian papyrus pictures, which turned up at the shop in a padded bag as part of a donation. They are absolutely stunning - much more brilliant than you can see here.
This book is a kid's book but the illustrations have been done by various Australian artists in pencil, charcoal and watercolour, so I thought it was worth having for $2.
The other book of paintings held in the old USSR was $5.
