>As if oppies weren’t cheap enough…

…there was a half-price summer sale at one of my local haunts, which morphed into “Everything a dollar or less!” at the end of the week.

On the first day of the sale I picked up these gorgeous jigsaw puzzles for fifty cents each;


…and on the last day of the sale all these vintage sheets for one dollar each.




Maybe more thrifted whatnots over here, later? Sophie is maybe enjoying that extra leisurely hour?!

    Oh, wow – if only all op-shops did such sales… I visited one the other day (I hadn't been there for nearly a year because I thought they were a bit expensive) and found the EXACT same sheets I'd looked at a year ago, but didn't buy (same stain and all) – and still didn't buy them because the prices had gone UP!
    love your finds x

    Oh my – cheapy-cheapersons – excellent buying, my friend!

    Isn't it crazy that they reduce them even more than the cheap price it was before!?

    Great finds there – loving those sheets especially!

    Total score, way to make a $10 note go a very long way for a crafter. Love Posie

    Your vintage sheeting is lovely. They are one of the best buys at op shops because there is just so many uses for them – and you can even use them for sheets 🙂

    Something is amiss. Can you get your oppie people to contact my oppie people and educate them?!!
