Monday morning op shopping

This morning after the school drop off, I headed out for a little thrifting. There are three op shops within walking distance of school so little planning is required for a morning of thrifting. Lulu loves to rummage through the toys and she is good company for the volunteers as well. The oldies love a blonde haired, blue eyed little girl to chat with. Honestly though, it seems just minutes into our first shop she always needs to go to the loo so it's off to find one as there isn't one available in the shop.

Anyway...this mornings treasures...2 x Johnson plates, 2 x embroidery hoops (just what I needed for a little Christmas crafting), a lovely collection of lace trims, a sparkly star deco, a couple of sweet doilies and a water colour paint set-little Miss was very pleased with that and it was straight home to paint.

Grand total, $10.00

Playing along with Sophie and fellow thrifters at Flea Market Finds.

Oh, I just love that little old fashioned water colour set. I remember making a huge mess of mine when I was little.

Wow such bargains - it would have cost me at least twice that much in Canberra!
