ARE you the kind of person who forges a sentimental attachment to things? I would have thought I was but when asked by Ruth, of Precious Things, to wax lyrical about an object in my life, I found it hard to name one that held special meaning. My partner and I even spent a dinner nattering over the issue and came to the conclusion that while I gathered things that appealed to me, I was equally happy to pass them back into circulation – it’s the op shopper in me.

In fact, the op shopper in me is getting ever more selective about the things I do bring home. A full day of op shopping in Sydney last month with Jess and Rachel, of the Melbourne Op Shop Tours, and I brought home only three new wardrobe items. Once upon a time, if it fit, I’d have bought it. This ‘80s-inspired knit was one of my picks and I have a jacket and Cue dress still to show off.

But back to Ruth. I did finally settle on one thing for the series of interviews Ruth is putting together. Take a squiz ... none was more surprised than me that it wasn’t something bought from an op shop.

What thing would you have chosen if it was to be immortalised in someone else’s interview series?
