My First Op Shop Show Off

Here goes, my first op-shop show off....

I went op-shopping yesterday for some single sheets for my son's bed.  The four sheets alone came to $7.

Left to right:  Yellow-cream and blue-green table cloths.  The blue-green-yellow one is a big oval, and the yellow-cream one is a big rectangle.  Both would fit over my huge dining table really well... I bought them thinking of making them into cusion covers or tea-towels, but they're so lovely I don't know if I'll be able to.

A pink-tartan blanket.  This is a double size and doesn't seem to have any holes or marks, it's so nice!  $10 - what a steal!!

Single sheets.  These are all flannelette: two matching with a jungle theme, a seaweed green and a pale pale green.

Visit Op-Shop Show Off to have a look through more treasures others have found.

Now, I wonder if this linky-thing-a-ma-jig is going to work....



  1. it will now holly, i forgot to add it earlier, opps!
    my fave is the pink check blanket, very pretty indeed x

  2. Great finds. I always keep an eye out for woollen blankets. They always wash up well and last forever! Have a great week! xo

    1. I not-so-secretly have too many blankets... op-shopped of course. Some of them are real gems, others might make good quilt-linings... :)

      Have a lovely week too!

  3. Woollen blankets are a firm favourite at Op shops for me too! And they make awesome jackets.

    1. Oh, I hadn't thought of that! They'd be PERFECT fore jackets!

  4. Great finds - love the sheets, perfect!
