Thrifty Sunday /7

Before Christmas I snuck away for a day of op shopping and I have to say the op shops are awesome before Christmas! I'm now going to add thrifting to my annual Christmas tradition!


First up this gold (toothbrush?) holder. My lovely cousin had already bought me the white tooth, which happily sits on my desk with pens - now I have a gold tooth to match :)


Despite already owning one in black (seeing a theme here!) I spotted this red guy for a couple of bucks which became my awesome Christmas hat :)


Couldn't find out which temple this Ema (wooden plaque) belonged too. When visiting temples in Japan you can buy these plaques and write your wish on the back - there is usually a spot you can hang them up as well.


I got this dude for free and when I finally unleashed him from his 1984 David Jones packaging, boy was there some toxic plastic smells being released!


Both reindeer and Santa were happy to find a home on my pink tree :)


To add to my badge collection this super Aussie pin :) The little old lady at the counter couldn't help but say it out loud either which made my day!


And lucky last a book of my favourite stamps. I had a pretty mean stamp collection growing up with one of my favourite pages housing these stamps :)

Snugglepot and Cuddlepie were my favourite!

  2. I can just imagine that little old lady saying "G'day matie" to you! Love that gold tooth. I've never been op shopping just before Christmas, why is it so awesome at that time, I wonder?

    1. It was super cute when she said it! Honestly I thought Christmas op shopping would be dead. I assumed after Christmas would be when people realise they have too much stuff and sort and donate but I was super wrong about that! Anyway shall test the theory again this year :)

  4. Oh! Love always your thrift finds! I need the gold teeth and the g'day mate pin :) Oh! The rabbit ema, great memory, I now regret not having one for each of the temples we visited :) However, I bought a bag that has 12 different temple votives embroidered.

    1. I love that the gold tooth is super practical too - I'm one of these people who goes a bit silly if I don't have 10 usable pens around me at any one point :P

    1. There is a trend of them becoming more expensive and curated but where I live we're still somewhat living in the past, which is super lucky!
