This Weeks Finds.....

 
 
I've been a bit awol from my blog lately! I haven't been op shopping so much in the last month for various reasons so there hasn't been much to show. Yesterday, however, I got one of those finds that you just don't get so much anymore....behold the beauty that is yellow art glass!!! They were only going to charge me $4 for it! Part of me jumped for joy but the moral part of my brain took over and I gave them $10 as it just didn't feel right. Shit, what's happened to me!!

  1. The yellow-trousered clown is creepy! Is he playing soccer? And Lucie Attwell's annual is so cute.

  7. Thank you for making my day due to you paying more and doing the right moral thing. It always hurts when someone drives down a perfectly great price on a wonderful object and then brags about it. Wish there were more people like you out and about.

    1. Thanks! I think sometimes we forget, in the search for a bargain, that they are charity shops and the money they make goes towards helping others less fortunate than us. If there's one thing I hate it's people haggling in op shops - unless they really are needy, of course.
