What is it about country op shops? I managed to get to three in Wagga over the Easter break and they certainly did not disappoint . Apart from this gorgeous colourful Afghan I found in a Sydney Vinnie's for $15 everything else and more was found on my little jaunt in Wagga.
My eyes seriously popped when I spotted this little number and I just love it in my little corner of the lounge. Perfect for these chilly nights.
A little turned wooden pedestal platter. Those pears are normal size so the platter is quite small. I really love it. $2
A cute glass vase for my mounting collection of favourite things on my mantle. 50c
Some sweet linens to chop up for a quilt which has been on the cards for some time. If I stopped using them for their intended purpose I might have enough by now.
I adore this little tapestry, it was only $4 and was with another more boyish one, I so wish I had bought it too. I sent mum back a few days later and it had gone. Rosa's is the next room to be painted white so when I'm done she will have a wall full of beautiful things.
This Pyrex coffee percolator came without it's middle but to tell you the truth I didn't even know it was for coffee, the handle is even made of Pyrex and I think it will make the best cold drinks jug. Later I saw them selling on ebay for up to $50, pretty chuffed mine only cost $2. Also some sweet English crockery. I love the black one and it was only $2 for the set. The pretty bone china ones were $3 each and in beautiful condition.
I always have lots of fun in the country oppies, mainly because I shop with my mum and brother and sisters, so much more fun when you can share your finds with someone else. The people are always friendly and the prices are so so good. For more Thrifty finds head over to Sophie's.
