Somewhere to keep track of my Op Shopping and Treasure Finding for the year. I love to find a bargain and I love to share my finds with like minded shoppers.

my Weekly Finds
Had a few days to myself this week, so I really trawled thru a lot of op shops, and it paid off, finding a bit here, and a bit there, so there were lots of knitting patterns, (always a favourite with me), and some table cloths, a great see thru apron made from 4 pink nylon hankies, as well as some tapestries. Don't you just wish it was still the 1970s and you could crochet YOUR MAN a lovely Poncho for winter?
However, my cutest find was a piece (only about 2m long x 140 wide) of Terry Towelling fabric in Purple, Orange and White floral ! Talk about poke your eye out LOUD! .. and a few more sewing patterns. Most of what I bought is to add to my stock for my first ever Stall next Sunday (27th), at the North Melbourne Market. Poncho Man? I just had to put up on eBay, he was just so sweet!
So that's my finds for the week. If you found wonderful things, or even just ONE thing, pop over to Sophie's and add yourself to the growing band of Op Shop junkies, showing off their Flea Market Finds.
