Today I have been thinking a lot about the upcoming shopping season. That is the Christmas holiday season.
In view of that I thought I would show you some things I have bought at op (charity shops) during the past year.
The little grouping of dogs is a real find. They are collectable ceramics from Japan and I have added them to my own collection.
In the first collage there are various items that would be perfect gifts. A piece of morano glass, a very pretty tea cup, a sweet little trinket box and a glass mushroom and dog. The hall stand holds my silk jacket and beside that is a lamp and a mirror (all of these are from the salvos). The tall up-lamp cost me $2 at the recycling centre. Some wall art, cabinet knobs, a very pretty doily and a collectable ceramic spoon are in the other collage.
And finally here is another
little ceramic piece for my collection.
This is the most expensive item on this post being $39.95.
Almost all other items cost less than $5.00.
If you possibly can please consider the planet, the charities that benefit and the effect on your wallet when shopping this Christmas.
