Canberra op shopping is growing on me. In Perth, I am used to paying $2-$3 for a top, whereas in Canberra, you're more likely to pay $5-$8. I think I am getting used to these higher starting prices, and sometimes (for example, when Salvos has a half off sale on one of their label colours) I am able to get some cheaper items anyway. This weekend I had brunch at Urban Pantry in Manuka (review to come soon), and then decided to pop into the Kingston and Fyshwick op shops.
This hand painted scarf was $2. I don't plan to use it as a scarf, it will become part of a craft project or will perhaps be used as a table cloth over a small side table, as it looks lovely over wood (as pictured).
This top was 50% off, so cost $2.50. Lovely and summery!
A 70's vintage dress by Dollina, for $9.
This hand painted fairy box was $3. It is going to form part of Bub's Christmas presents- I plan to fill it with glitter, gems and little trinkets and wrap it beautifully... she'll love it.
These ceramic figurines were $1 each, to go into the box... I loved these sorts of things as a little girl, I hope I'm not out of touch and that Bub will too!
Today I went on a roadtrip to Goulburn and the op shopping was amazing... those finds are to come in another post :-)
