Op shopping

Here's what i found op shopping this week...


* A crochet cushion ($2) which I will dye, not sure what colour yet...
* Some vintage childrens books (50c each). I'm so excited about The Lost World. Firstly cos it's so beautiful and fifty years old, but secondly cos I'm keen to read the story! We already have this same edition of Pollyanna but at 50c I had to buy it for someone else. There are a few books for me ($3) and a 30yo Sydney street directory which I will use for some crafting. I got that for free in a box outside a church along with a very old crochet pattern.
* Some vintage knitting needles still with their original packaging ($2/pair). Not that I can knit...
* A converse jacket for Tassy ($3.50) which surprisingly Dave loves!

VINTAGE knitting needles at $2 that means they are post 1966 when we changed to decimal currency. VINTAGE I say again... and I vintage I am pre- 1966???
