BSL Eltham last Friday.

Here are my bargains from last Friday. An unusual silk scarf with kookaburras on; I think it might be hand painted. Most of our scarves are priced at 50 cents, so I was very happy to pay that for this one.
Nice little Millers tee shirt with pretty beading embellishment. $3.
Another tee shirt with a bit of sparkle, $3.
Gorgeous pair of vintage hand embroidered pillowslips. I'm not saying how much I paid for these, suffice to say it was a lot less than what I would have paid on eBay!
I'd made this Xmas bunting to decorate our home, but I took it to the opshop to show the ladies, and they persuaded me to hang it in the shop. Next thing I knew, customers were wanting to buy it! What would you pay for bunting? I made this from old patchwork fabric I've had for years, so it didn't cost me a lot, and didn't take more than an hour to make. I suggested $5 a metre to one customer and she seemed happy with that. But I'm not selling this until I've got around to making some more!

Gina, you always find such good items.
Those pillow slips look lovely.

I have been thinking of making bunting but have run out of time I think.

I do hope we can catch up for some opping again in the new year.
