A fistful of zips

Our summer holidays were a tad more eventful than we planned and surprisingly included nearly a week down on the Mornington Peninsula. Which is more than enough time for a carefully planned and executed visit to the plethora of op shops on The Peninsula (dahhlling). The visitor info centre in Dromana can supply you with a double sided page listing all of these shops and their opening hours. Including the warehouse one (I know – an op shop warehouse! We now how to do thrilling holidays).

I know not to expect fabulous finds everytime but quite frankly, I was completely outscored by the rest of the family.

While I came back with those zips and these knitting patterns

and impeccable pantaloons

it doesn’t seem to have the same ring of success as well-fitting, excellent condition black docs for the Bloke (who needed black boots and dismissed the idea of paying $4oo for a pair); a pair of well-fitting excellent condition roller blades for the lad PLUS he got a fully lined, with interior pocket, leather biker’s jacket for kids. The lass demonstrated a good eye for clothes, choosing  a great selection of t-shirts, and a rather funky little skirt.

But all those zips for the grand sum of $1.50 is not a bad day’s op shopping.
