On a recent trip to visit a friend near Morwell, the Chef and I found ourselves being driven out to investigate the op shop in Mirboo North. If you're looking for Mirboo North, you'll find it in Gippsland, halfway between Morwell and Leongatha. It's a sweet little town surrounded by lush pastures and a bit of bushland, packed full of cafés and specialty shops and, of course, the op shop.
Here's what I found (mostly old knitting patterns, of course):
But this was my favourite find, for obvious reasons:
Crocheted and knitted ties! And yes, I will absolutely be making at least one of these because how could I not?
Apart from the knitting patterns (of which I only bought a few, so there are still many left), the Mirboo North op shop has plenty of clothes on offer, including a box full of hats. It also has a steady supply of crafting and patchworking magazines, if that sort of thing is of interest to anyone.
If you ever happen to be driving through Mirboo North, you should definitely stop off at the op shop. And when you're done, wander across the road to the chocolate shop and treat yourself to something sweet.
