Imagine my surprise and delight to find a thrift store ( op shop, charity shop) on Raratonga.
The S.P.C.A. has a small beach hut shop on the shore. This photo was taken just after a tropical downpour, usually there are several tables outside.
No vintage knitting patterns or wool to be had.....not surprising on a tropical island in the middle of the Pacific.....so I made do with a 70s-80s summery bangle ( 50 cents) and a well made choker of polished stones with the sort of clasp I like ( $2).
Now I intend to link this post to an 'op shop show off' site hosted by Max in Christchurch, NZ if I can,
and would also like to draw you attention to a post written recently by my bog buddy Lynn in France.
Jan - sounds as thought you are having a fine old time - nice finds!ReplyDelete
(just tried the link but takes me to a Yahoo sign-in)
whoops...try again cos I think I have fixed it.Delete
which link? seems the 'op shop showoff' link is disabled at the moment. I'll try again tomorrow.ReplyDelete
Both links are working now. Great finds and I enjoyed reading about the rescue...firmly believe in that!ReplyDelete
What?! No Hermès?ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the link Jan.
I have been looking for a topic, however nebulous, to link your shelter post. SPCA seemed to fit, eh?Delete
I think this is the cutest little 'op shop' I have ever seen, plus what fun to have a few treasures to remember it by!ReplyDelete
We married in Rarotonga-my husband, who is an even more rabid op-shopper than I will be gutted he didn't find this wee place, can't wait to show him xReplyDelete
