Active duty for these retro Tupperware containers
Well, I found my way back to the Opawa Community Op Shop. It took me awhile to get there, & I wound up half way to Lyttelton, but it was worth it.
Cheers to Nin, from Make. Life. Beautiful. for introducing me to a fab Op Shop. I still owe her a vintage sifter to say thanks!
Thrifting Budget: Call me
a liar Optimistic, but I think I need to alter my thrifting budget. The last 2 weeks I’ve spent $13. Of course that is right after I blogged my weekly op shop allowance is $10
So you all know, I came home with more than what I’ve posted here. I just can’t show you 🙂
Why: I’m planning to give some of these goodies away as Christmas gifts and as part of the trans Tasman Travelling Linen Stash organised by the fabulous blogger from A Little Bit Country
“Green & Gold” for the Trans Tasman Retro Linen Swap
Helping put the kitsch back in kitchen!
My Criteria for Giving Thrifted Gifts:
- Thrifted item must be clean
- Thrifted item must be in good condition.
- Thrifted item must be something recipient would enjoy
- Thrifted item must fit into my budget (which seems to need adjusting!)
- Thrifted item is destined for someone who won’t be weirded out receiving a preloved gift
Am trying to be super organised this year: I have a chance to send some Christmas gifts with travelling family. Thinking light, compact, unique & thrifted.
Do you give op shopped gifts? Have any “rules” for shopping this “Silly Season”
I’d love you to share your thrifting strategy or your own op shopping experiences in the comments below. I’m all about sharing the knowledge, but if you’re an Op Shopping Ninja who thrives on a stealth mission, I get and respect that too!
