Op Shop Finds - Hawthorn.

I thought I would show you some goodies I bought at the Epic Treasure Trove op shop in Hawthorn. It's not in my neck of the woods but Monday is our day out and we usually go exploring other suburbs. I got this lovely little matching tea cup, saucer and plate. I love the combination of yellow and pink flowers. It's in really good condition too. There is a tiny bit of wear on the saucer but it's not really noticeable unless you look very closely.

I also managed to pick up an embroidered doily and a whole heap of vintage hook and eye cards. Some of the hook and eye cards are a little damaged but I did manage to snag one that was in pretty good condition and had all it's hooks and eyes in tact.

I went to 2 other op shops in the area but didn't find anything worthwhile in either of them. It's always a bit hit and miss with op shops. Most of the time I end up leaving with nothing.

I brought some of the very same hook and eyes at my local oppy! I love op shopping. The three down the road from me are real gems. Most of the time I leave with something and they have even given my 6 month old baby lovely free presents.

The cup, saucer and plate are super cute too! :)

Your local op shops sound fantastic Christina. I often leave with nothing from my local ones.

It definitely was a lucky day. I visited 2 other op shops on the same day but only found my goodies in the one shop.
