Fishing..........







Hi Sweet-peas.....

Yesterday we had another trip into Dunedin to pick up some framing for an exhibition that is coming up..........
Now because we had some extra time we just had to go for a wee fish around the 'Sallies' in Mosgiel. 
Perfect for a fishing trip looking for treasures was my old 50's school gym-frock and a mens 70's velvet black bow-tie......dashing in with a big spotty bag and red beret the cherry on top.
I came away with a 50's green glass bowl and a little dress with ruffles I am going to wear as a petticoat. Total of the spend = $5.70....yay!!!!

Got to run poppets.....must get the entry for the art exhibition away.


Love V

  2. Stop teasing me with your Otago op shop outings! I want to come too!!! Gorgeous outfit, I particularly like the little boots. I'm dreaming of freezing days, hot savoury scones, & endless op shopping, only 8 weeks to go! Squeee! Xx

  4. the Sallies in my town just re-located 4 blocks from my house. Since this is day 4 of my month off, I've only be once. That will be changing. You look like a character from an old movie. School girl on a day trip

  5. I love this outfit! And I'm happy to see the Sally's signs look the same in New Zealand as they do in Michigan. Congratulations on the successful fishing trip!

  8. Black with a bit of red and white. That's perfect. Polka dots cheer up the outfit and the red bird brooch is the icing on the cake. Well done!

  18. 1950s school uniform... just perfect for hacking to a completely inappropriate length n a Chrissy Amphlett tribute! Or wearing with a cute beret and boots for op shopping adventures. Yay for $5.70 bargains!
