Then a lady was clearing out her Nan's garage & I scored these fantastic teatowels which have never been used - 5 all together for only $3. The tag reads they are made in Milano. Not sure what to do with them yet - they were just too fantastic to leave for that price! I also scored a linen / crochet tablecloth but it is soaking so no pic.
Lastly there are to older ladies who have a stall every week selling patterns, trims, buttons & all odds & ends. I picked up this lovely old cotton trims for 50c / meter & they are always so nice & threw in this huge vintage button free (it is actually more of a peach colour, not brown like the photo).

I have only recently discovered tip shops & although the name doesn't sound too inviting I have found some great stuff there & the money raised usually goes to local charities which is great! My best buy would probably have been a relatively new sewing machine (looked as though it had hardly been used!) in perfect working order with manual for $10!! So if you like a bargain or just love to have a peek at what is one mans trash & maybe your treasure check out your local tip shop.

I am a wife to one gorgeous great hunk - o - spunk (he would probably be rather embarrassed if he knew I called him that, but I do love 'Kath & Kim') & mum to 2 spunky little monkies all of whom add the best bit of spunk to my life!
So now I have started this blog I better keep it up...
