Op Shop Finds

A few months back I signed up for Wardrobe Refashion and although I stuck with my pledge (apart from buying a winter jacket) I didn't really get much time for refashioning. However, it did renewed my love of op-shopping and I have discovered that I work in the middle of op-shop central! There is a Vinnies, Salvos, Red Cross and ADRA op-shop within easy walking distance of my office - I could even visit them all in my lunch break if I was so inclined!


I also discovered the Vinnies Furniture and Haby warehouse during the week and found some gorgeous things (including a CurlyPops pillowcase - on the right!)...
...I nearly squealed with delight when I saw these two butterfly single-flat-sheets. I'm definitely making these into some Oliver+S pj's for Tilds!!

...This sheet reminds me of the birdie fabric in this dress (maybe Joel Dewberry?).And they threw these button in for nothing (is it poor-form to enjoy getting a freebie at a charity shop?).

Eeeeeeeeeeeek! I can't believe you found a pillowcase that matches my sheet set.
I bought the sheet set on Ebay a few years ago - still unopened in the 1970's packaging.
I also have that same beautiful butterflies sheet which I love too.
Great scores... op shop GOLD

I love the butterflies! That would be so perfect for fussy-cut blocks centers on a quilt. :)
