After reading about the wonderful and amazing Op Shop finds of katiecrackernuts for some time, I finally gave it a go at the weekend.
I set out not expecting a lot because I never really unearthed amazing when I did pop in to op shops regularly in my `young and single' days.
I headed towards Lifeline and St Vincent De Paul in the main shopping strip of town full of anticipation.
Imagine my excitement when after a couple of hours headed home with a pair of black corduroy jeans for $5 and a fantastic fully lined woollen jacket in a bright pink/crimson colour for $10. Wow! I'll try and get my hands on a digital camera so you can see the jacket (I'm a dinosaur who still has a camer which uses film). I'm pretty sure I was smiling the rest of the day!
Even better, now I know Lifeline has a Plus Size Women's rack I will be keeping an eye on it regularly.
While my purchases were not as stylish as some katiecrackernuts has shared on her blog, I like them and have given me the encouragement to keep looking. A successful first outing, I think.
