Flea Market finds...

There is a cute little Rotary Op shop I go past at least 3 times a week...BUT it closes at 3.30pm and I am always walking past after that time! So I was really happy when I had most of Thursday off, I found myself walking past the Rotary Op shop after going to the around 10.30am...and looky here it was open! Oh Joy oh Rapture I was thrilled...I was even more thrilled when I found this beautiful tea cup!..yes I know what you are thinking...NOT another tea cup Lauren!
Isn't the edge just lovely! AND what was even better was the ladies who were working there decided to give me a discount because they thought the edge should have had gold one the handle (she used a special word but I can't remember it now!) so that was a bit of a win! There were about 5 or 6 other pretty tea cups siting pretty but I didn't have that much money! I also found a skirt BUT when I got it home realised the zip is cactus...I may have to try and fix it's a shame because there was a jar full of zips at the op shop too!

Mr T and I went opping yesterday in search for a coffee table, but had no luck, there were a couple at a few of the salvos we went to. I was however a bit sad to find out the golden triangle is no longer a triangle...there are only 2 golden op shops in that area now...not 3! :) BUT gosh the Salvos there did make up for the missing vinnies...there were SO many Enid Blyton books, someone must have had a clean out, and there is always lots of bric a brac there!
