more op shop goodies

I've been having quite a bit of vintage/ op shop/ thrifting joy lately.  I'm actually not a big visitor of op shops (they make me sneeze!) but there is this very cute little one around the corner from Husband Guy's work and every time I drive past I have the urge to stop.  Unfortunately it's opening hours are minimal - as with most op shops - it's staffed by volunteers for the MS Society.


Today however I was in luck so I promptly pulled over and went in.  The lady took one look at my 6mths pregnant belly and asked if I'd be interested in hand knitted baby goods.  I said yes of course and she produced a beautiful dress, booties and matching bonnet.  


As well as this gorgeous little jacket.  Now by the feel of these garments they are either really new (as in the lady had just cast off!) or they've never been worn.


I also picked up two crochet doilies.

So proud of my op shop finds!  I think I could become addicted to this!
