Here are some goodies I picked up yesterday and today.
Friday, Vinnies Altona North: Blue Tag Sale!
These wool and wool-blend men's trousers were also on the $1 rack, which was great as I am collecting woolen trouser fabric for a thrifty project. And these $1 jeans will look great cut off as shorts once summer comes around again!
Also at Somerville Rd I grabbed this cute little milk jug which will have a new life as a much-needed loose change jar.
Finally we swung over to the Bargain Centre in Yarraville where I found some more wool pants on the half-price rack. Yay! But I won't bore you with yet more pictures of my wool trouser collection :-)
Then, Saturday morning my housemate convinced me to accompany him to Vinnies in Newport. The half-price rack there yielded this lovely Peter Alexander brushed cotton maxi-dress (or possibly a nightie?) with a sweet little winter scene print - half price, it was $3.50.
The coathangers were $1 each (considering my ability to buy clothes, I'm always running out of coathangers!) I also found a beautiful multicolored silk scarf for $2, and two packets of knicker elastic were $2 each. (for my adventures in knicker-making!)
If you know anyone who does lingerie sewing, there were several lots of very lovely stretchy lingerie lace there also, the kind that's about 15cm wide - looked like some unsold stock from a fabric shop. Sorry I forgot to take a pic of those, but I think they were about $4 per reel (there would have been a few metres on each reel).
Happy shopping everyone! Hope you have a good weekend!
