Day 2 of my ‘me holiday’ saw me traipsing in Brunswick and Fitzroy looking for op shop and vintage bargains. I used to hate the fact when I was a teenager, that my mum would op shop (she has volunteered on and off over the years for Vinnies). Now it’s a case of ‘Oooh! Op shop!’ whenever I’m in a new town, or place.
Highlights of my day included
Savers- great array of clothing in good nick, and the most amazing selection of bags in all shapes, sizes and colours. Scored a little straw tote for Miss BG for $2.99.
I also found a man’s shirt for myself to wear with jeans. I loved the retro pattern
Poppet- In Scotchmer Street, North Fitzroy which in itself is a lovely place to visit. I bought a navy top which would look great with gray or red pants, preferably capris.
T2 in Brunswick Street, which I dropped into on my way to Hunter Gatherer. and glad I stopped by. They had a sale on teapots and I got a little one for $10.00. Of course I had to get some tea to go with it…
Lunch at Nihonbashi Zen- a little restaurant tucked away in a basement in Chinatown near Russell Street. I’ve walked past it heaps of times and had a lovely time there.
My next days off next week will be spent a little closer to home, but should be just as delightful…
