We walked through Kilbirnie on the way home which is home to my favourite op shop - Opportunity for Animals. We stopped off for a quick visit and I picked up a few goodies.
I got this crazy maxi skirt for $4 - I am unsure if it will stay a maxi or if I'll shorten it to knee length. But I think the pattern is pretty rad and as an added bonus its a home made skirt, which I think makes it even more special.I also found this big bag of lace for a grand total of $2 which I was pretty happy with it - its so nice to have little bits of lace like this to finish off projects. I think a lot of it is vintage as well.
Here's a close up of some of my favourite pieces of lace from the bag - I especially like the blue patterned lace.
Speaking of op-shopping, I wanted to share this photo with you all - it was taken before Christmas. I was pretty excited to find this Barbie game, it looks about as old as I am and its very much of the "Girls can do anything" generation I am part of - pretty sad to see that idea isn't so popular with young girls currently, most likely something to do with the non-stop stream of pink toy/clothing companies feed them.
I opened the game and looked at it and it seemed the basic theme of the game was for Barbie to decide upon her career path. Unfortunately Public Servant wasn't an option for Barbie. But I was glad to see that Doctor and Pilot were included as career choices as well as model and actress.I was very tempted to buy it - but living in a one bedroom apartment, I really don't have room for "extras" such as this. Which may be for the best actually - if we had a lot of room things could quickly get out of control.
Did you all have a nice weekend? Any rad op-shop finds recently?
