My Latest Op Shop Finds

Even though it was school holidays here in chilly Brisbane, I managed to steal a few minutes here and there to sneak a look into a few different op shops.

these lovely gems ranged in price from $1 to $5 OMG!!

Have a fascination with carousel horses - bought these at two different stores.  The jug looks divine with roses in them and as for that beautiful flower have no idea but I LOVE it.

this is a front and back view of a sweet cushion - $1

More bits and bobs

I believe this lovely painting was only $5 and it is a painting

$2 woohoo so love this

So did get some more but these are the most photo worthy.  I also tortured my husband and kids this afternoon by insisting on trawling through the junk people have put out for the council clean up.  Pick up some great stuff which I will reveal here later.  Also was talked out of some stuff by my patient long suffering husband.  I should have ignored him because with a bit of elbow grease it would have been so worthwhile.

We did manage to get in a yummy pizza at Oxford St, Bulimba and took our darling Master Clay to a Model Train show.  We are thinking of joining this club.  They meet Friday nights at Carina right beside where my main man plays baseball.  I think it would be great for our son who is totally fixated on trains.  (part of his wonderful autistic quirks).  However, the boredom for me and Miss Ally will be tough.


  1. I am loving your finds. I think my fave is the rose jug. Would be perfect holding a flower arrangement xx

  2. I have had 3 dozen pink tone roses in it and it did look delish
