My friends know that I don't "do" opp-shops (thrift stores).
I really want to, but they kind of ick me out a bit!
I'm happy for people to buy things from opp-shops and give to me all washed and fresh, but I'm not very good at going myself and sifting through everything.
Which is why this post is a big deal for me. A couple of days before the wedding, I went looking for some vintage fabric to use as tablecloths and lucky for me, I scored!
Check out the cool doily tablecloth I found - and only $2!! It is beautiful, but won't be staying whole for very long as I have plans to cut it up and dye away. (Stay tuned, because I think I am going to have an abundance of hand-dyed doilies that I might just have to give away later on!)
And I'm loving this awesome piece of fabric - broderie anglaise - with pretty green and yellow flowers. I'm envisioning a sweet dress made from it, or maybe a nice flowy skirt? It is about 2m long so plenty to work with! Again, a bargain at $2!
So, my opp-shopping adventure was successful...until I heard a kid blowing a tune into a recorder only to turn around and find it was Lil and freaked out a little bit. GROSS!
