Last week I visited my local oppy again, and came away with these
bundles......grey rib, which always come in handy.....some brown check, which I'm thinking boys shorts.....and some polka dot black sweatshirt material....which I thought would make a great pair of winter trackies for Lil Miss
Then there are some MORE vintage pillowcases.....and they are the sole reason I ventured in, as a sign at the door lured me in ......" Two pillowcases for 50cents"~! Score!
And then to top it off, there was this house coat.....picked for its fabric and not for its purpose, but since I got it home and tried it on, it fits like a glove and I kinda like it's retro vibe.....so I am in two minds about this one.
All up the whole lot cost me 4.50......It would have been 3.50, as the black polkadot was an afterthought.
I rushed back to the shop to snap it up.....the lady said 1 dollar, so I handed her a two dollar, waiting for change...but when she didn't give me any change back, I didn't have the heart to tell her.....
afterall it is a charity shop and a complete bargain :)
And while I was photographing my apron, I thought I would show you a couple of aprons which you can often find my mum wearing around the house. They were my Nana's, but since mum's arrival in the country, they have made a come back in her day to day life
The first one I love simply for the fabric design....its so groovy.....definately the 70's.....not the most flattering, but practical which is what you would expect
The second is from the 50's, and Mum has fond memories of her mum wearing this in the kitchen......I love those dogs!
But the question is did anyone notice the cute tablecloth in the first two photos?
