Half price sale at my favourite op shop!

I was  informed by fellow blogger and  op shop devote Katie, at Katie writes stuff, that it is "National Op Shop week" this week!  But so far I have only made it to one op shop this week!
I was planning on.leaving work earlier today but didn't, and of course many oppys are shut by 3, so after an accidental wrong turn on the way to another shop today, when I saw the sale sign up at Cumberland road,  how could I resist?!?
I found a scrap of lycra fabric - just what I needed to make a special cushion for a work buddy with an injured elbow, a Harry Potter wand box for the boys to store their wands in ( yep, only in my house would that phrase make sense!), a book & toy for work, and some silver bangles for me! Will.have to see if I have time for a little detour way home tomorrow....


  1. It was meant to be! That looks like an adorable op shop, too.

    Sadly, I haven't been to any op shops at all this week, mainly due to the problem of most oppies closing before I've finished work. I'm hoping to get to two country op shops on Saturday, though. Here's hoping we both find some more op shop treasures before the week is out.

    1. It is a great little shop and all the staff/ volunteers there are lovely! Hope you find some treasures on Saturday!

  2. Great finds. I think the harry potter wand box would be happy at my house too :) Ms 20 is still a little interested in Harry. I visited an op shop yesterday and picked up a bit of tupperware - a thing I can rarely walk past! No fabric at this one but I stop to look for tea cups.

  3. Let me know if you are collecting any particular Tupperware and I will keep an eye out for you!
