Last Saturday saw my darling sister and I head out to the the ‘burbs for spot of op shopping.
I chose not to purchase this record, but maybe I should have?
We started in Nar Nar Goon, where I found these teaspoons and a pair of yellow eggs cups.
CWA and Girl Guide spoons. $1 each.
The kookaburra carving was a gift from a favourite Girl Guide, the patterned egg cups are replica Titanic crockery, and my new yellow beauties. $2 for the pair.
Next was Pakenham, where I indulged my penchant for manchester, and cheese and broccoli pies (not pictured). We stood out to the lovely ladies working at the local Salvos. They said they could tell we were from ‘the city’, and said that we looked very ‘chic’. But she pronounced it ‘chick’. Cute.
Crochet lap blanket to join my growing collection. $7.
I love tablecloths. This Queensland one joins my favourite Papua New Guinea and Tasmania tablecloths. $2.
Finally, I found crockery! Johnson of Australia is always a favourite, and the kitschy royal treasures were a real find.
17 pieces (missing a side plate) for only $5!
Commemorative mugs, $3 each. The cute jug was 50 cents. It’s now holding my new spoons.
This has whet my appetite for some more op shopping. While I love my inner city vintage haunts, the prices in the ‘burbs are where it’s at. Worth braving the Monash for at least …
