Saturday op shop finds...

Lots of great goodies this week at bargain prices! Seems like schoolies are too hungover to beat me getting up early for the good finds... my favourite this week is my pair of cat salt and pepper shakers for 20cents for the pair and my cookie cutters for 50cents!
A cute little Silver pin.....
...real croc skin vintage purse with vanity case section-a little battered but was only $2.

I love this bag, its a bit cheesy but thats very me. I like nice colourful things and these flowers are great-bag in mint condition too!

GORGEOUS 60s floral butterfly blazer! This was such a find, only $3 and almost perfect.Such a nice cut and beautiful print!
I seem to be accidently collecting Prue Acton dresses and this is my most recent one-its so groovy! Covered in a rainbow mexican print. Also the most softest cotton dress ever! No wonder-apparently made of Mettlers Swiss thouroughbred cotton fabric-since 1745, it honestly feels like velvet.

Another groovy 70s Geoff Bade number and a 1950s Hale of Hawaii dress in a print ready for Summer!
Hope you all had a fantastic week-had some brilliant weather up here in Byron so have been enjoying the outdoors and feeling very un Christmasy-still cant get used to Summer being Christmas! Thanks so much for stopping by and will be drawing for the Christmas $75 give away so check back during the week.

  8. Thanks for all your nice comments, I am always amazed myself at what I find. I think I am lucky enough to live in a place with a great recycling attitude and with plenty of personalities around for the small area. Knowing every single op shop within a 100+km radius also helps! I only get 2-3 days work per week so often on road tips to my favourite spots.

  9. I'm in love with that long cotton dress. So pretty! And I remember those cookie cutters from when I was a kid. My mom used to have a bunch of them. Wonder if she still does?

  10. Fantastic finds, wow, you got so many.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and your comments.
