Op shopping adventures

On our way to Echuca last weekend, I stopped at three little op shops. G and I often laugh about how when we kids, we were never allowed to stop along the way and so I had worded him up that I would be on the look out for op shops in little country towns, that we were making 'a day of it' and that he wasn't going to be one of those dads that didn't stop if the children (or I) saw something fun on the way.

I'll be honest.. he didn't really enjoy the op shopping, he faked a coughing fit (think dusty, musty, moth ball smelling op shop) but he stopped nonetheless!

This is what came home with us...

a pretty square tablecloth, only little, maybe 1mx1m
more doilies
this pretty cloth, a few holes and stains but I have some plans for it
pillowcases, lace and some lovely wooden buttons
a pretty sheet that I've snipped into fat 1/4's for a swap.

Thanks for popping by my little blog. For more flea market finds, visit Sophie.
I hope your week ahead is a happy one!

I'm impressed that he agreed to stop. Dave certainly wouldn't!

Echuca is gorgeous. What did you do there? Go on a paddlesteamer?
