It's 11.06am. Your friends are arriving on the 11.11 train. The op shop near the station is open and looks tempting. You have exactly five minutes. What do you do?
Me, I go in and head straight for the linens, or what we in Australia quaintly call 'Manchester'. Today I found three small sheets in this vintage fabric that I have been collecting. I don't know much about it but you quite often see it in oppys - I have been trying to get enough to make a quilt for my son's room. It's really groovy.
Also these unusual linen place mats with sheep on, good for the kids.
And a cute vintage pinny. I love these!
Next I ALWAYS head for the children's books. Actually this is my favourite section but I go to the linens first because there is more competition for nice linens, tee hee! I found this little batch of vintage books, including a lovely edition of Sleeping Beauty that I haven't come across before.
That's my five minutes up! If I had more time I would next go to the bric a brac, then to the craft books and habadashery, then lastly to the clothes, which are not so much my thing. What is your oppy shopping pattern?
