MORE Optober treasures!
Today I managed to visit 3 Opshops and first I went past an op-shop I haven't been to in a year or two. I hadn't been that way in a while, even though it isn't very far. It was VERY worth while. I only had $8.70 in my pocket and wasn't sure how fat that would go. But I walked out with most of it in my pocket still and wait until you see what I got for only $3.50. There were a couple of more expensive things I will go back for when I am cashed up. Definitely a deserving charity.
This place is called Second Chances Op Shop 3/397 Diagonal Road, Sturt SA 5047.
This is a charity set up to support the under-priveleged innocent victims of crime, specifically the children of prison inmates.
Inside I found a shelf of unpriced doilies. I started collecting a few then thought I had better inquire the price as with a going rate of around $2 each it wouldn't takelong to burn my cash. With the answer being ".50c a handful", there were happily no restrictions and a few more were added. 5 embroidered and 12 crochet style plus 2 vintage hankies. I was informed by the hepful staff that some people use them for crafting.Oh really? lol
So what can I do? I pick up 2 of them. right next to them was a plastic tub of Fuzzy Felt characters for $1.50. I was a big FF fan as a child. I spent many hours playing quietly with them in church on a Sunday. There were lots of cute characters amongst them.
Lastly I picked up a couple of books. The picture book to be used for tags and decoupage and such. All for $3.50!
So then I'm feeling lucky and pop past an RSPCA store where I picked up just one book. this book actually deserves a post all of it's own. Don't judge a book by it's cover! $2 and worth every penny!
