Jump for JOY!
Speaking of JOY,
my mate Joy
who works at the Hamilton Operatic Wardrobe..(incl costume hire)
has informed me that they are having a sale of COATS
starting tomorrow at 10am (Clarence St)
|Here are some of the beautiful labels of some of the clothes. Drool!|
Finally getting a chance to blog about the stuff I scored at the oppies on holiday.
I love exploring other towns and their op shops.
in no particular order...
|I am going to finish off what someone started!|
|These were 10c each.|
I got the kid ones, from the 70s mainly..
|I just love the packaging from bygone eras..|
And this pattern is from my birth year. Any guesses?
I'm sure my Mum used this exact pattern.
|LARGE table cloth $1|
|I cannot describe what a lifesaver these things are for crawling babies, in the winter!|
|* Another table cloth. $2|
* Hat (reversible) 20c
* Trou for John (he lucked in BIG TIME on this holidy. He scored 6 pairs retro suit trousers and 5 very cool shirts)
* Kitsch holiday snaps photo album on a stand.
|These items were on a 50c / 3 for $1 rack at an op shop in Te Kuiti.|
* Nighty, tea dress, halter neck top.
THE FOLLOWING ITEMS
were in the Fill-A-BAg for $1 boxes at that Hospice shop I pictured a few posts ago..
|Orange plastic coasters. Love the woodgrain in the packaging|
|* Plastic picnic stuff. Lots of. bowls, small and large plates.|
* 4 green plastic-that-looks-like-glass for my collection.
* A large plastic weave basket.. (I really thought I'd taken another shot of all this stuff!)
|Close up of that photo album. (It has slide in plastic photo pockets.)|
|* Very cool wool coat. Not sure about the buttons.|
|Fill a bag of scarves/fabric for 50c|
|3 mexican scenes from the 60s.|
I selected these ones (they were 10c each)
because they are 1966, the year of John's birth.
This is Iris on holiday, in a dress I wore as a kid.
|I bought this for my friend who we stayed with (she likes owls)|
|I WISH shop workers wouldn't put sellotape over things like that!! Pulled off some areas of the surface which is frustrating!|
