I know I have said this before, but I LOVE op shopping! I may recycle some of my things, but I also donate to the op shops and buy from them too. My dear eldest grand-daughter (nearly 13) loves to shop there too, and every chance we get we go together.
Today I found a gorgeous pale blue Esprit jumper (XS) for $6.50 and a nice denim skirt Size 10 for $3.50. They should look quite OK with my black boots and a black belt over!?
They are both now washed and I am sure the skirt had never been worn/washed before! I also saw a pair of Just Jeans Size 12 jeans still with the tags attached, marked $69.95 for $6.50. Unfortunately (I would have NEVER been able to say this before), they were too big for me! I also bought more knitting needles (50 cents a pair!).
My dear grand-son came too and he chose a couple of magazines. I was showing him some childrens' books, but he (just turned 6) had his eye on an XBox magazine and a 4 Wheel Drive Vehicle magazine, so he bought those! How scary, he is growing up so quickly. Little Miss Cutie (aged 3) chose a Nursery Rhyme book. Their dear father was a bit worried about op shop books, but I quickly tried to explain it is no different from reading books from the library. All was well (I hope!). Anyway we had a great day.
I have been a bit slack with exercise so I will spend time on the crosstainer tomorrow. I also need to to work off the HUGE helping of lasagne I had for tea tonight.
Hope you are all having a FUN week!
