This week, I checked out the following op shops:
- Vinnies in Narrabundah
- Salvos in Fyshwick (only had time for the Bargain Basement part)
- Tiny's Shed at the Mugga Lane tip (in Symonston)
The trip to the tip ended up being quite an adventure. I got parked into my car park when I was leaving, because some annoying people parked a trailer right behind my car and started loading up furniture. When I could finally leave the car park, I got lost twice on the way home.
By far the coolest thing I saw at Tiny's Shed was this amazing vintage TV which has been turned into a fish tank! If I planned on remaining in Canberra for any decent amount of time, I would totally have bought this because it would make such an amazing addition to any room:
This is what the inside of the shed looks like (I had no idea it would be so huge):
And here is the outside... I love the sign "Awesome Pat, man of the people":
Anyway, here are the purchases of the week:
Cute teapot ($1, from the tip), ugly mug ($1, from Salvos), floral embroidery (50c, from Salvos), books ($1 each, Salvos) and 4 x retro plastic plates (brand new, $2 for 4 from Salvos)
Close ups of the loveliness!
Floral plates with gold rim (75c for 3 from Vinnies), flower & leaves plate ($1, from Vinnies).
Linking up with Sophie to share the thrifting love.
