LAST Saturday I spent a couple of hours doing a reconnaissance of op shops to be visited during one of two op shop tours in November. I got such great feedback from the op shop challenge that I took the idea for an op shop tour to my local council’s environment education officer. She loved it and, not one, but two, tours will be organised for Recycling Week. A mid-week tour will bus op shoppers around five stores, with a lunch break, and the weekend tour will be a walking tour of five op shops in the city’s CBD.

Needless to say, one can’t visit five op shops without bringing home loot. It was a good morning. Gold-plated ‘80s earrings, a pair of boots (where one door closes another is obviously kicked open), a pair of pumps, an indie-inspired shirt (perfect with jeans), a David Lawrence skirt for work, a rattan bag and a leather belt with eagle buckle – all for under $60.

  1. The eagle is great.

    I recently came to know someone who sees eagles as a personal motivator. Would you call it a totem? She would be beside herself to fine something like that!

    Those lucky, lucky people who will have you as an op shop guide!!

  4. Ah the belt buckles, reminds me of so many memories. when I was growing up, I was really into huge belt buckles, but the interest has faded away now.

  5. you're a clever cat!! I'm super proud of you (can I be? Pride is a funny word, but you know what I mean) This is such an awesome initiative! Can't wait to hear all about them. I'll catch up on posts now just in case you've already been on them - I'm back to the land of the living - just handed in my last chapter!!! Of course there will be hours of editing but the bulk is done and I feel as free as a bird! For a little while at least. xo
