Slim Pickings

It was slim pickings at the op shops this week. I went to Salvos on Newcastle Rd, and Lifeline at Jesmond shops. It felt weird going to an op shop in the middle of the shopping centre.

These shorts for R, at Salvos. $2. They have an adjustable waist.

The trusty old crochet coat hanger. These guys are underrated, I love them. The very thing to stop your shirts sliding off the hanger. 50c.

These were at the Lifeline shop at Jesmond. Cute little kids watches, great condition, $4 each. I plan to give the soccer ball one to A for Christmas.

Linking this over to Apron Thrift Girl for her Thrift Share Mondays.

Birthday goodies

I picked up these items from Salvos and Vinnies. Vinnies at Mayfield have a good selection of toys compared to most other op shops around here. These were for a little boy's 3rd birthday, a friend of R's.

This truck makes a variety of noises and flashes its light when you press down the seat. R's friend is having a lot of fun playing with this guy. Reminds me of Bob the Builder toys.

These stickers are for the bath- they are reusable.
I hope R's friend has fun with these- I had fun looking for them! :-)
