I HAVEN’T done a Thrifted Tuesday for ages. The op shops have turned up very little of late. Do any op shoppers have a theory on when they uncover their best finds? I did persevere last week and found among a rack of dated black jackets this haori. It was tagged $15 but when I took it to the counter it was $3 – red tag sale day. Yah. The lining fabric is the most delicate muted print and there are three symbols across the back. One in the back seam and one on each drop sleeve.

  1. i defo have to be in the right mood to have a sucessful op shop. sometimes i feel too fussy and rushed and can't 'see' anything. other times i see beauty in loads of things and can visualise using them. a creative feeling i guess. this looks like one of those rare special finds, must have been hidden inamongst those jackets waiting for you x

  2. I am so envious of people like you who seem to find gems at op shops. Two things work against me - the time to myself to have a proper look and my size (it's difficult enought find plus sizes in mainstream stores let alone op shops!).
    Thanks for teaching me what an haori is.
