More of yesterday‘s op shop goodies. This one wasn‘t air conditioned and in summer in Brisbane Australia while wearing a mask it was hard work but nevertheless I persisted. Ha! This was the 5th of the six op shops I visited. The active wear is for my niece who does Physie. Everything else is for me. The envelopes are for #Litsylove and #justbecause

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Nice!!! ❤️ 2d

Took my nearly 90 year old gran op shopping on Thursday & this is what I came home with for $42! Lots of nice going out outfits for when it‘s safe to do so again. The DVDs are for my step daughters who love Studio Ghibli. There are some postcards for #Litsylove & #JustBecause , some acid free scrapbooking supplies, lots of bath products & a plate for my plate wall. We are currently on a family holiday in Brisbane to see Stew‘s side of the family.

Soubhiville I love that black flowered dress! 7d

I had much success yesterday op shopping! I wasn‘t going to go to this op shop but the yellow, dot dress in the window caught my eye and it fit! Afterwards I took myself out to the sushi train for lunch. They didn‘t have my sparkling sake but they did have green tea ice cream. No strawberries though. It‘s always a bit of a hit or miss. The food is always divine. The art works at the bottom are for #Litsylove and #JustBecause correspondence. $41

Saturday‘s op shop finds from 2 weekends back! The labels are for Xmas presents, the hankies are for my step daughter‘s, who ❤️ their horses, the slip is for under my work clothes, the cards are for #Litsylove and #justbecause. I hate buying new tea towels when I can get vintage ones. The mini book is because I ❤️little things and my nephew enjoys that series of books. I already own some of the bunting. Now I have more to play with. I ❤️ Enid B.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Beautiful slip 🤍🤍🤍 2mo

Yippee! The #FFFS #FallingForFallSwap box is in the house! Thank you @avanders and my secret partner. There's no initials on the box, but I have a piece of hair in the tape and if I do a DNA match......I'm reading too many #suspense novels. 🤣❤

Avanders Lol! 😂 Your secret sender must have wanted to remain secret a little longer 😜 My package is #justbecause fall fun - open whenever! 😘 4mo
Gissy Don‘t spend money in DNA test, it is me🤣who sent the box. I‘m glad it arrived before the open date. I‘m still waiting for 2 items, I will send them to you as soon as they arrive. @Avanders 4mo

Back before the Newcastle Oz lockdown when the op shops were still open 😭 It‘s only supposed to last a week. Time will tell. I‘m handling it with wine & books. Some young adult & stationery for #LitsyLove & #JustBecause. Hopefully I get some letters in the post with my extra hours not spent traveling to & from work. Some of my kids will be very happy to see me online. I know others will be ‘missing‘ given the low socioeconomic area I teach in.

LeeRHarry Hope you‘re going ok. Now we are back in lockdown for a week - it feels never ending - thank goodness for books and wine 😊 take care 💕 6mo
JaneyWaneyB Hope you are keeping well. Hope you enjoy The Girl with the Louding Voice. I loved it such a powerful book 6mo
