Hmmmm could I ever not op-shop??????









Well sweet-peas the answer is NO!!!!
The trouble is that I don't have a little house to put the treasure in, just a very little abode "Basil".
Theses are some of the things that I just could not leave:
The dress I am wearing $3.00 in Riverton
Two beautiful pieces of vintage fabric $1.00 each Riverton
Fabulous Vintage pillowcase 50c Balclutha
70's floral eiderdown $4.00 Balclutha
Sad cat $1.00 
With fun cheap dresses I am going to wash and wear, then wash and donate them back to charity in the next town.

Its going to be hard for this wee hunting gathering squirrel!!!!
I just might have to be satisfied with finding treasure and photographing it, aahhhh!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

love V&W

  2. Lovely finds, Vanessa. Of course you must op shop, it would be rude not to! But poor Basil will get overloaded quickly, so you will have to have a one in-one out policy! That's the bit I find tricky... xxxx

  3. There is no way you could ever stop! Basil will just have to take it like the big, strong man he is:)). What glorious pics ... I feel like I'm taking a trip with you too! xoxo

  4. Your treasures are so precious!That cat is lovely and all the prints too!I think that the idea of wearing the op-shopped dresses and then re-donate them is so smart and against our consumer society, all the world should do it!
    Have a wonderful week end!

  5. Wow, great finds and all complete bargains too! There is no way I could limit myself - maybe if you get desperate you could post items to a willing friend/relative to look after :)

    That dress is especially lovely.

  15. What a cool idea to donate them back. But I might just have to jump in a camper and trail behind you scoring the ones you're re-gifted!
