Two opshop lots.

Again I seem to be the only one posting, but according to the stats, there have bee 57 people read the previous post, and 80+ people read the one before that.  Where are they?  I've been invited to write for another opshop blog, and if this one doesn't pick up soon, I'll drop out and go to the opposition.  Not much point in posting all these photos if nobody is looking!
Found the items below at a Salvos shop in High Street road Scoresby.  I wasn't going to buy anything, but hubby was with me, and he found these coasters for $1 and wanted them.

He also found this for $3 and insisted on buying it.  It's not on the door yet though...

Today I worked at the BSL opshop to fill in for someone who is away, and I found some great bargains.
Neck support pillow $2.

Gift pack of soap and hand creme $5.

Vintage handkies, ten cents each.  I've been planning to make a CQ throw using vintage handkies for the blocks, and these will be perfect.

Xmas cookie cutters, 70 cents.  Every year I plan to make biscuits for Xmas but never seem to get around to it.  Hopefully these will inspire me!
  Blue and white tea towel $1, will look lovely after a good wash.

Plain bunny rug that I will use as the backing for a baby quilt.

I was wearing a green top today and one of the other ladies pointed out this pendant and said "That would look nice with your top".  So of course I had to have it! $4.

Not a good photo.  Black long blouse with animal print feature - $4.  It will look great over black slacks or leggings.

Hi Gina, I am looking at the blog and loving your bargains! I have been collecting vintage hankies for a while now with the idea of using them to make a curtain for my craft room. I saw the idea on Pinterest.

Count me in as another reader! I've been thinking about emailing to see if I could join (maybe I should if you're the only one posting.) T'would be a shame to see this blog die.

I also sent an email to join and never heard back. This was at least 6 months ago.

What a nice surprise to see all these comments - glad to see there are still some followers, but sorry to hear some of you haven't been able to join up. I'll see if I can contact Amelia and see what's going on. Hopefully she can write a post on here so you can all see it.

Hi, I've been reading this blog for a very long time and it would be such a shame if it closed. I am an avid op-shopper and would join up, but I currently do not have a camera that works, not even my phone!
