Treasure hunt

I think that's one of the reasons why I like opp shopping so much (or thrifting as they call it up there in the north).
It's like a treasure hunt.
-

These are the treasures I bought home from my most recent hunt.
Including the carry basket.
You may recognise the picture from this post.
-

A teatowel.
Two tins.
Two Duraware cups.
In great colours.
-

A hat and cardigan for Isla. Needed more winter cardis.
Cotton blanket for Liam's bed. Been looking for something like this for a while.


Vintage Pyrex.
How could I leave this behind!
The colour!
And the print!
-

Envirosax shopping bag.
Had my eye on these for a while.
Can't believe I found one at the opp shop.
And for only 50c!
-

Another cardigan for Isla.
Uncanningly similar style to the one I am (very slowly) knitting right now.
-
And I had change from $20.
I tell Aaron often how lucky he is that I'm an opp shopper ;)
I rarely buy things new.
There is no need to with all these treasures out there.
I recommend you go visit an opp shop near you.

I love a good treasure hunt too. I really love it when my finds are colour coordinated. It happened to me yesterday, love it. Your finds are fantastic, love all those blues and the cardigans are too cute.

I love finding great things too. I give a lot to the shops too as I think it increases my op shop karma.

I love the little knitted things and those gorgeous pyrex dishes. Nice spotting!

Great finds! (thift jealousy)
Oppshops are fab, I think it is probably in our jeans!
Why today I am wearing a cool apricot cardi that I picked up from my local thift shop for only 50c, yip thats what I said 50c, I just put some cool vintage buttons on it and it looks great!

Wow, if thrifting was like this in my town, I'd be a happy woman! I do find some great things, but the pickings are rather slim in my neck of the woods. No vintage pyrex to be sure!

Great finds - you did well!

Wow! that is some haul! I am always a teeny bit jealous of all the marvellous things bloggers seem to find in charity shops! You came away with some brilliant finds there Hanna - clever you!

I seriously want to go thrifting in New Zealand! Unbelievable! I will have to live vicariously through you.
