I pop into the op shops a lot at the moment. More than usual.
Just trying to stash up more than usual for Christmas prezzies.
I really don't see the problem with buying gifts second hand.
We have taught our kids young the Reduce, Re-use and Recycle mantra.. and that's how we roll!!
As the kids get older there are becoming coveted toys which are bought new or off trademe.. (ie a certain lego set etc)
But especially for the littlies op shopping is the way to go!
Some of today's scores (not all for prezzies):
|Lovely wooden pin set. $3|
|Not a christmas prez but I love the kitschness of this melamine plate.|
|VERY princessy sari in the perfect size for Iris, the dress up queen! Looks unworn.$4|
|I love this money box! It's an old bank savings one.. Iris actually chose this, so I guess it's not for Christmas! 20c|
|Brand new looking bath towels - SO COOL! $2 each|
|Funky as heck wallpaper with aliens and planets. $1 per roll..|
|10c lycra book cover for one of the boys.. handmade by someone.|
