However, i did manage quite a nice haul (funny I kept a bag in the back of the car and just added a thing or 2 here and there, surprised how they piled up).
Then in Goulburn Salvos, I saw a staff member emerge from the back room with not One but TWO genie bottles, OK, they are only in amber glass, not as desirable as green or blue, but I did like them and the price was right, so she didn't even have to find a place on the shelves for them!
talk about right place, right time.
Lots of sewing, knitting and doll books, of course, always good sellers on eBay, and a Pyrex cookery book, very water damaged but some nice illustrations of Pyrex dishes.
These two strips of embroidered linen were once shelf edging (probably on a Welsh Dresser or open pantry). one's a bit damaged and I really don't need them for anything, but I think I know an embroidery collector who will gladly add them to her stash !
.. and the little roses cotton crochet pot holder was just too cute to leave behind too.
So, hopefully now we are home, and Vic's into a routine, he's not in the best of health and doesn't look like improving either in the short term, I'll be back to Op Shopping in and around Melbourne again, with lots to show.
I need to get into a new eBay routine too, otherwise grand daughter won't be able to fit into her bedroom in the forthcoming school holidays.
I love showing my finds, and I know lots of you like looking. If you want to see more fantastic finds for the week, pop over to Sophie's, where all the Op Shop-aholics hang out!
