I visited a newly opened church run op shop in my suburb. I picked up an outfit for my Mum, but I was most thrilled with finding my first vintage swimsuit...or togs as us Aussies like to call them. I was drawn to the lovely fabric in amazing condition, but I wasn't so sure it would actually be wearable. Anyhoo I got it home & tried it on & it was a perfect fit, with gathers in the right places to hide my little tummy rolls, & the lower cut legs are actually more flattering on my thighs then regular swim pants. There is mesh on the inside with a lacey bra bit for the booboids. The sweet old man in the op shop thought these were new, but when I showed him the vintage detailing on the inside he blushed as if he'd seen some sort of secret women's business. I won't be modelling these on the blog....I would hate to permanently blind those who read this!
'Genevieve' vintage swimsuit for $4.
With Elastomeric Lycra....so cutting edge!
A velvet 'Goldcrest' bag made in New South Wales for $1.
A strange old blue kitty salt shaker. I'm a crazy bird lady so I'm not sure what I'm doing buying cat ornaments! It must be the influence of you cat loving bloggers out there!
An original Holly Hobby plaque 50cents.
Mr P wondered why on earth I'd brought this ugly old bag home with me. But it was only $1...& I might use it one day????
