Today my mission was to buy a crochet rug or something similar to put over my son for those cold car trips home at night so he’s snuggly and can sleep. I work near a couple of op shops so thought I’d go hunt through them to see what I could find. I had a bonanza buying the rug and more, and this inspired me to create a new category for this weblog and show what I bought, for how much, and where from.
I quite regularly buy things from op shops and have bought some great things in various places.
This is what I bought today.
Goodwill – Hindley Street, Adelaide
Boys safari jacket (which fits my son) . Apparently the trousers or pants that go with it were at the warehouse but they were separated from the jacket. I shall go back next week to see if the trousers made it to the shop as I felt sad they were separated. Price – $2.50
A top for me. I liked the colours and pattern and of course I will wear something underneath as I was never one to wear a see-through top with just a bra underneath. Price – $2.50
A hat for me. I lost a favourite a couple of weeks ago and while this is nothing like it, I still liked it enough to buy. Price – $2.50
St Vincent’s – Peel Street, Adelaide
A cardigan. As if I don’t have enough cardigans – but then a girl can’t have too many. This was actually from the retro section of St. Vincent’s just next to the normal one. It was a separate shop. They had some ok stuff in there and if you want dress-ups this seems to be the place to go. Price – $8.00.
Finally – the crochet rug I was initially after. Price $5.00.
