OP shopping has its highs and lows. Some days you go out and... zip. Nothing. Other days, you're rolling in op-shop gold.
I bagged a fair-sized haul last weekend with print linen skirt, broderie anglaise shirt, bead necklace, wooden earrings and leather sandals for a sweet $31 - all from the one op shop.
Now, think about that. Do a mental calculation and add up what a new shirt, skirt, leather shoes and accessories might cost you at the mall. Even from a budget chain store you'd be up for at least double, if not triple, that and it's more than likely the items would stretch, shrink, unravel, fade or pill after a few washes. The skirt I bought is lined, made of pure cotton and pure linen and washed beautifully. The shirt is cotton and again, with a little soaking, washed up clean and crisp. The leather shoes have barely a scuff mark on them and I've already had complements on the accessories.
So, had any luck at the op shops?
