Op shops in Nelson NZ are very tempting.
As much as I would have liked to clean up on casseroles and china, luggage allowance limited me to
vintage scarves and ties (most now online in my etsy shops) and buttons!
I specially like the way the Hospice Shop sews them on old playing cards.
Some of the buttons have already found their new home......I was going to do a 'new knitting' post but this is the only item I made, however, aren't those wee square m-o-p buttons adorable?
All in all, I spent $20 - $25 over 7 weeks and I am only showing you a small fraction of the loot. Time and money well spent.
