Saturday Thrifting

Well as a treat for being very domestic and doing chores on a Friday night I went off on Saturday for a spot of opshopping to 2 local stores. Alas one of them was closed due to water damage: I hope they are ok & will be open again soon.

So I contented myself wandering around the Red Cross: it is one of my fave shops & for the princely sum of $4.60 I got 1 book, 2 pasta bowls, 2 Easter cards, 1 apron, 1 cup, and 10 assorted knives/forks/spoons: not a bad haul!

Playing along with Sophie's Flea Market Find's & Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday this week

Yes I am guilty of buying quirky 10c Easter cards from the opshop: secretly want to fill my yard with inflatable bunnies for Easter!

Well even though I already have over ten aprons none of them are gingham
so it really was a case of I need this apron.
Whilst I already have over 10 vintage aprons, none of them are gingham so I really needed this!

I thought 20c cutlery was cheap,
but 10c each is even better: more vintage cutlery for my mismatched set
Thrifted cutlery 10c each: yes please!

Happy thrifting everyone! xx
(already planning my next thrifting adventure...)
