We all love a bargain don't we? And some of us love thrift shopping - where bargains can definitely be found a plenty (Here in Australia thrift shops are more commonly called Op Shops ie. opportunity shops)!
Here's a few of my latest thrifty 'opportune' finds:
I love retro, so imagine my joy when I stumbled across this gorgeous fully operational (and electrically tested) retro Sunbeam Mix Master...
It came with both milk bowls and the regular beater attachments! LOVE! So how much would you pay for this?
NO! Not $10 but only $8. That's right... only $8. I think I got an absolute bargain. It has a few signs of wear but considering its probably around 40 years old it's in really good nick! Besides, $8!!!!
I also really love retro patterns and picked up three super cute childrens patterns from the late 60's and 70's that really will still look cute and fashionable in comparison to modern girls dress fashions.
Here they are:
They are all complete too - with one even being uncut!
Now, I had to have a chuckle when I had a closer look at the patterns in the store because on the pocket sleeve one clearly stated this:
NOT SUITABLE FOR CHUBBY GIRLS
And another had this:
SUITABLE FOR CHUBBIES
I really don't think you would find this on any pattern out there these days! It made me chuckle... and feel a little sorry for any 'chubbies' back in the day.
But there you go... back in the 60's and 70's it apparently was okay to be what now I think might be considered a little in your face! ☺
Happy Days and I hope to have you back soon... leave a comment, let me know what you think of my finds or just say hello - I love receiving and reading your comments!
