Our first stop was the St. Vinnies shop on Kent Street.
I chose this one, which is my new favourite top, so you can't tell me if you don't like it:
Along with these three:
Along with the four shirts, I found a nice cotton dress with pockets for $5. I couldn't find anywhere to take a full length photo, so you'll have to believe me that it's about knee length.
I won't show you everything that Mum got for fear of making the longest photo-based blog post ever, but I must show you this sari* that she got for $4.*Not being worn as a sari in picture, really just making me a beautiful speckled purple ghost
Other things of note at Vinnies included all these wonderful plants from $1!
This organ, with a stool for only $40.
And children's books for 50c each or 4 for $1 from this basket
Our next stop was the Salvos shop in Alice Street, on the corner of Bazaar Street.
Where the "special" this week is:
Mum was after manchester, so this was very good for her. It's quite hot so we didn't even want to think about long pants existing, but it's great for anyone looking to stock up for Winter.
One thing really caught my eye in here, which was this two piece outfit, obviously home made but fits me like it was made for me! It was $6 for the set.
And it looks like this on me:
Again, couldn't get a full length picture, but the skirt goes down to my knees.
Other things of note at the Salvos shop included these toys from 20c each, some with their original tags still on, averaging $1.
This beautiful bassinet for $40
And this 60cm long fish tank for only $20!
Third stop of our op shop hop was St. Paul's op shop in Adelaide Street.
My favourite thing at this shop is always this clothing rack at the door. It always has a mix of women's, men's and children's clothing and each item is 50c.
Mum bought some candle holders here, $2 for a set of 4, and some fabric. I found a book I wanted which was priced at 50c, but they threw it in for free with Mum's stuff. Score!
Our final stop was the Lifeline shop, also in Adelaide Street
.They also had an excellent special on ladies' tops, but I already had four so I tried really hard not to look at any as I have to get all the stuff I buy home to Brisbane.
Inside, they also had a special on dresses, $5 each. I got this pink dress which was marked down from $8! It goes down to my ankles and is delightfully cool and breezy to wear!
Other items of note at Lifeline included 50c books. SO MANY BOOKS!
These lovely dinner plates at $1 each:
And this big bin of green thongs (footwear, not the ahh... other kind) for 50c/pair, new!
If I didn't have to get everything back to Brisbane, I would have bought so much more... including that $40 organ, which I'm a bit in love with even though I never even saw it with the lid up.
Happy Op Shopping!
