Op Shop Delight

I haven’t been op shopping in MONTHS. It was my thing… that is until I found out I was having a baby, donated and purged most of the items in my house and vowed not to fill it with stuff again. Well, not for awhile anyway. Isn’t the bouncer ugly! To an untrained eye it is but to me, I could see the potential. Remove the horrible cover and ancient toys and…
… hey presto!!! It’s a natural cotton colour and all it needs is a quick steam clean with the Tobi. Steve can do that tonight. Seriously it’s like new and these sell in stores for $30 and I nabbed it for $3.50! I had one of these when I was a baby so it’s extra special.
I didn’t stop there, oh no, I continued right across town and visited every single op shop. It was fun! I picked up the white and blue pumpkin patch beanie for… FREE, yep the old lady just gave it too me lol. The next op shop I bought the cutest, tiniest blue swimmer bottoms for $1. The final op shop I bought the red & blue bonds beanie $1 and the “Juno” inspired onesie $1. I’m pretty happy with my loot :)

Charlie is quite enjoying his new play toy :)

    MAN that’s an ugly cover but super cute bouncer. We had a blue one just like that, very good bouncer.

    Great finds!
    Just watch that his little fingers don’t get tangled in those holes. My mum had one for my sister when she was a baby and ended up having to cut a big hole in it to get her fingers loose. She was a bit of a problem child though!
