In other news, the travelling stash box arrived at my house last week, I picked a few treasures and replaced them with some pieces from my stash. The kids wanted me to keep the whole box, but I made a restrained choice. Bag handles, some colourful buttons, a wee bit of fabric and some embroidered linens.
We visited a few extra op shops on our school holiday travels, including my all time favourite one. All the clothes there are $1 except for jackets which are $2! I always find some amazing clothes there and for $1 it's hard to go wrong. I picked up a very cool silk shirt that is undergoing a transformation as we speak.
I found some amazing fabrics for bargain prices! I always feel less guilty about adding to my stash if they haven't cost me the earth.
I found a pair of vintage sheets in original packaging! So starchy and crisp and of course well folded, it was a shame to wash them. But they looked amazing out on the washing line. I also bought an "unfinished cardigan", which actually equated to around 900g of pure New Zealand wool, once I had "frogged" it! For $5 it also included two sets of knitting needles, the best buy over the last few weeks.
I'm joining in with Max again with the Op-shop show-off. Do go and check out all the other amazing finds!
