Surely not! Opshoppers do their thing all year round, don't they? Maybe others have been like me lately - due to lack of time or other reasons, guilty of not posting their finds on here :-(
Well, here are some of my latest finds. Unfortunately my camera isn't doing too well with colours lately, so you will have to believe my written descriptions instead of your eyes, lol!
Child's patchwork quilt - $4. Much nicer than in this photo, beautifully made and in excellent condition. For those of you who know that I don't have any kids, I bought this to give to my husband's cousin, who works in Papua New Guinea with native people who have been displaced by mining companies. They are forced to move to colder areas and have no way of keeping their babies and children warm, so I'm donating cot quilts to cousin to take over over there for 'her babies'.
This jacket is nylon with brushed cotton lining - $3.50. I wanted something that will be wind and shower proof to replace two of my jackets that are neither, and don't fit me any more. This fits well, and is longer than the others too, which will be warmer.
Hard cover book $8.
