Op-shopping finds.

0610 op-shopping finds.

Including: books from my past (I've read Chocolat but must have lent my copy to someone and never got it back; haven't read this Geoffrey Household, but enjoyed his thriller Rogue Male; and I'm sure I had this Ladybird book as a child!), a trophy sugar bowl (tennis, 1950s) and a ?pewter tankard-to-become-pen-holder, decoupage boxes, chest for a dollhouse, brass cups for dollmaking (but not for the dollhouse, rather larger in scale), Better Homes book from the fifties (spiffing moderne rooms!), a magazine rack....and an old school desk.

A good day's thrifting - we enjoyed ourselves.

(An op shop is an opportunity shop = goodwill/oxfam/charity shop with second-hand goods)
