WARNING *** WARNING *** PHOTO BOMB TO FOLLOW!!!
I am going to do a post soon on this topic of op shops becoming too expensive. I have read lots of other people's posts about that very thing just lately too...
I can't imagine church fairs/jumble sales being anything but bargainous, no matter what happens in SOME op shops!
I spent $60 ($49.32 US/ $47.52 AUS/ 30.64 GBP/ $49.17 CAN)
|This annual sale is always amazing. This year it was almost overwhelming. HUGE piles of everything. Everywhere you looked. They don't do clothes or shoes anymore as it was too much!|
|Blue stool. Bit weathered but I love it and the weave is in perfect order.|
|My fav - Paradise Springs Rotorua.|
|Christchurch Town Hall|
|Tea Tray to add to my collection|
|Large tin. Mum had a round red and pink version of this.|
|Kids' stuff. Some will be appearing under the christmas tree/in stockings!|
|Two vintage cuisenaire rod sets. A veil that Iris is going to die for!!|
|A quite ugly, but strangely appealing 80s leather hand bag, rainbow bag, and the melbourne wallet morphs into a shopping bag.|
|6 really good quality sheets|
|* Silver cake servers, spoons etc|
* Brooch and earrings set
* The necklace I have been searching for all my life
* A brooch (there was a whole table of brooches $2 or $3 each + loads more jewellry)
* old pink nail care set
|* Huge bag of bling for Iris|
* Pink teaset. I have a blue one to match!
|2 random bags of stuff. I'll keep the good stuff and pass on the rest to the oppie..|
|3 old board game boards.|
They will look neat on the wall in the kids' room.
|* Cute little cotton hand embroidered shirt -says a dormir|
* metal fruit bowl
* pink plastic bowl. I LOVE this!
* random books. I hardly looked at the books they had. There were so many. My kids are currently obsessed with Mr Bean!
* Beautiful big sewing tin
* Very large tin rubbish bin
I also bought morning tea for me and my sister-in-law.
So pretty good bang for my buck I recon!
Well less than $1 per item if I were to work it out.
And such fun.
Get into it NZ!
Spring Fairs/ fetes/gala season is upon us!!
Rumble at the jumble!
I'm going to link this one up to Sir Thrift-a-lot's Thrift report
