Lorde, Lorde, Lorde! This op shopper is a bit behind on her posting schedule due to preserving & the Grammy’s (yay Lorde!)
…However, I did discover Macklemore’s Thrift Shop song.
(its been out how long??? and you call yourself an Op Shopper…SHAME!)
The Thermos & the pottery both come from the Christchurch City Mission Sydenham
This house we’re relocating was partially furnished when we moved in. I’ve searched high & low to find an ideal replacement mirror, thinking I’d have to return it.
After coming up with nothing, I simply asked the owner if I could add it in with the other chattels we’re buying she said yes. Score!
Aside from thrifting, I’m also into the whole urban farmer thing. Am just getting into preserving.
This week: shredding & freezing courgettes (zucchini), making Gin, & toothpaste
Next week: Tomatoes, more courgettes, & maybe some apricots
Warning: this song contains the “F” word
Hmm “I’m gonna pop some tags…Only got $20 dollars in my pocket
Might need to wash my mouth out with the unsweetened version of that toothpaste after singing that song (I added peppermint to make the toothpaste more palatable)
Got a favourite thrifted drinking vessel? (my Fire King Mugs are my fav), but this thermos is definiately in the running. Have any op shopped pottery that you connect with? Is there a thrifting theme song running thru your head
(quite like Max’s Rebel Yell)
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!
