Living inChristchurch at the moment seems to engage a strong sense of loyalty to the city for, for me anyway.
This week I have had some cool finds that I wanted to share.
North City Op-Shop on Sawyers Arms Rd. This is huge and the day they went there all the books were free. I was impressed with the range and their store itself is about the size of the SaveMart stores but still priced like a proper church op-shop.
On the same trip we popped into the St Vinnies store across from the Northlands Mall and I picked up this cool rag rung. I have been thinking of making one but some wonderful person is making them for the St Vinnies and they are only charging $5!!
And these cute, cute glasses.
I’ve also stopped at a dairy in Sydenham (which is currently a lot of empty lots!) This awesome owner has brought in a shipping container and powered it up and kept going. I love that, good on him for making it work as Tim Gunn would say. He also sells the cheapest bananas in Chch for 99c a kilo.
Photos of the thrifty finds I picked up on an opshopping venture with wonderful sister.
I’m going to use the big Mercer Mayer book for wrapping paper for small things.
