Op shop finds


My husband & Father-in-law both had Monday off so we decided to go op-shopping. Check out the bargains we found.


Cheese Platter $1 at Father Riley's


I already had this lid which fits perfectly-Yay!! I'm going to give it a make-over like this one at House of Hepworths:

Or maybe I'll make mine white like this one at Thrifty Decor Chick...
we'll see

Found these bargains for our baby boy for when he's a bit older:

This castle was just $5 at vinnies- has a working cannon and 12 knights.

Just needs a bath.

Can you believe this garage was just $1 at Vinnies?
I love it & I'm gonna give it a make-over too.

I'm dying to do one of those cheese dome/ cloche's too. I finally found one this weekend for $2 at a church yard sale! Can't wait to get creating!

Thanks for popping in at my blog and leaving the sweet comment!

I haven't been able to find one of the cheese domes! Everybody always talks about how abundant they are, but I guess I just haven't been at the right place at the right time. I can't wait to see what you do with yours. Take care friend!

Yeah the actual dome my mum found for me & it was at vinnies (op-shop/thrift) or a council recycling centre- I can't remember. Keep looking u never know ur luck. Problem is everytime I go looking for something specific I come home with all sorts of other things instead. Lucky that the op-shops are cheap & for a good cause!
Good luck Tricia.
