OK, so I have a bit of an Op Shop problem. It doesn't really help that everytime we go to the library or playgroup we practically walk past one - or that our girl always suggests we "pop in" whenever we see one (wonder who she learned that from?).
I've finally found a form of shopping I enjoy - trips to "proper stores" for me tend to be frustrating and ultimately end in buyer's remorse - and maybe it's not such a bad thing. Except...
I am now the owner of masses of fabric - all from the one shopping trip! Lots of scrappy bits (I'm imagining what was made from the pieces that got cut out and used), but also some enormous pieces. All were bought without definite plans - but a good few dreamy thoughts.
Then there were some clothes - and a cute little cupcake apron (for possible conversion to little person apron) ...
and finally an enormous picnic basket (justified as a practical storage solution for all our play food and kitchen supplies), and a little packet of yellow buttons - because that girl of mine knows exactly where the Op Shop sewing supply section is and chose it all by herself.
So now, I'm not exactly experiencing buyer's remorse, just a sense of "what am I going to do with all this, and where will I put it?".
Hoping all of you found some treasures - and also the space to keep them!
