Brotherhood Opshop Eltham.

Our little blog seems to be neglected lately, so I'm making an effort to post my weekly finds at the BSL while I'm working there on Friday mornings.  There is nothing to excite other people; although some of our customers get very excited when they find some brand name outfits for about $5..  I  smile politely but don't tell them that I thought their wonderful find was the ugliest thing I've seen in the shop!!   Truly, I don't know what it is about brand names that grab some people.  I'm serious about some of those clothes -they are so way out, but our manager told me some of them would retail for over $200.    I've never seen anybody around our way wearing them, so I don't know who donates them.  Maybe they were bought but never worn for obvious reasons ;-)
Anyway, here is my little stash for the week:
Yep, another book on Tarot cards - $2.

This Witch's Box of Magick ($4) is still unopened and in it's cellophane packaging.    I'm waiting until I can spend time with one of my friends who like me is fascinated with this kind of stuff, and we'll open it together and cast spells ...

Old patchwork mags, 20 cents each.

Two scarves, 50 cents each.

"Cedarwood State" brand jumper, $3.  Never heard of it, probably boring to brand name lovers, but it suits this 60 plus girl!

I love when I check this blog and finding new post. Nice colour jumper.

Thanks Anon - I'm glad there are people like you still visiting the blog! Yes, I loved the colours on the jumper. There was another one the same style, but with black and grey stripes instead of blue, and it didn't do anything for me at all.

Hey Linda, that is so sweet of you! Just remember though - I am only there on Fridays between 9.15 am and 1 pm. I'd hate to miss you! We could have a coffee afterwards ;-)

I don't have my own account to this site but I love opp shopping and I also love checking in to see peoples finds. It's so nice to go into an opp shop and not be hassled by sales people. You can just browse, relax and come away with something unique. Some of my best finds are under $5. Thanks for your posts and photos.
