I had a great time perusing the country op shops during the school holidays. Every school holiday we spend a week with my parents in the country town of Scone. It's a lovely break for me. I enjoy a week of sleeping in (my boys are early risers), and shopping without being distracted. My boys who love their Granny and Grandad enjoy a week being showered with attention. :-)
Scone has two op shops, a Red Cross, and another one in the Baptist church hall. The Red Cross is open most days, the Baptist one is open Thursdays and Fridays from 10am to 2 pm. The Baptist op shop has an old bus permanently parked in the yard that they use for storage. I think it's pretty cool.
20 mins drive away is Muswellbrook, another town, that has 3 op shops, a Lifeline, a Vinnies, and an Anglican one. Lifeline and Vinnies are the main ones I visit there. The Lifeline often has a good variety of children's clothes.
I had a good haul these holidays, here's a few pictures of some of my finds.
|Two tops for me! This rarely happens, as the larger sizes aren't always very stylish or interesting to me.|
But I scored big in the Red Cross op shop. I'm planning to wear a singlet/cami under the red one, it's a bit see-through. :-)
