This is such a fun post for me to put together - all my favourite op shop finds, most are new-ish (last few months) but there are some super old finds I've thrown in because I'm not sure I ever shared them.
My most recent and possibly favourite find was this silver tamagotchi. I was checking out the board games section and notice some familiar looking characters on the spine of a box and huzzah a tamagotchi! I'm kind of scared to start him up because I remember I used to kill my pets due to neglect when I had one in high school.
Anyone else remember teachers being all concerned about tamagotchis and banning them from the classrooms? I guess they were just precursors to mobile phones (or is that too much of a stretch!) ahh kids like distractions :)
Some cute ornaments - I just can't resist! I'm really wanting to build up my collections of cats but its seems to be such a slow process probably because I'm too picky (though I'm sure others would disagree when seeing how much stuff I own - slight hoarder here!).
Measuring spoons, I realised you can just pick these up at a homewear store but I thought it was a good find, brand new, for two dollars. I honestly don't know what I ever did without measuring spoons - well actually I do, a lot of inaccurate measuring went on :p A normal tablespoon is really not a tablespoon measurement!
Continuing on with my lucky camera finds, a flash that I really needed, I love that it has the person name stuck on with a dymo maker - I honestly don't want to take that off :) Tell me why did you got rid of your flash C. Sumner? I'm going to do a little review on it soon too.
Tap shoes! I bought these as I was recovering from my broken ankle and made it a goal that I would learn a few steps as my ankle got better! I still haven't but I will :)
I've picked up a handful of "new" board games over the last year and this was a favourite find of mine. Perfect Match used to be this awesomely cheesy Australian dating show that aired in the 80s. I finally got all my room mates to play the board game the other week and although it isn't ground breaking everyone said they had fun playing :)
The board itself has the best graphics and there's pink love heart tokens!!
I got this mug last time I was visiting Ben's mum. Expo 88 was a huge deal for Brisbane folk, being born in 1984 means I was only four when I visited but I do have vague memories. The mug crazily had never been used but I have since rectified that with many mugs of chai tea (super addicted).
This is one of my super old finds, I picked this up at a Brisbane op shop when my friend Emaya was visiting from Melbourne - we actually got matching ones! I love this watch but I also love my pink watch I got from the little drom shop in Singapore - it's a hard decision which one to wear :p
Just incase you really want to see (or maybe I just really want to show you) a shot of the front of the box :)
And my last find, a flower press, actually it's the exact same flower press that I had as a kid, I still remember that box too! It had it's original price still on $4.99 and I picked it up for $3. I just need to start collecting some flowers so I can put it to work :)
