opshop/rummage haul

I pinky promised you in the last post that I would post pictures of my opshop and suitcase rummage scores from the past week. An dI managed to keep that promise. 
Here we go...

On Sunday I bought this adorable necklace from Holly of Pannikin. It was only $1 and I actually don't really own that much jewellery. So I bought this along with a little plastic dinosaur necklace.

I couldn't leave this one. I wouldn't have cared how much it is,  I needed this top. I wore a purple and pink version just like it when I was five to my mum's wedding. I was so lovely, but I think it got lost during the Queensland floods at the start of this year. So I had to have it. I wore a tiny pink and purple one with matching pants. My Mum didn't even wear a dress to her wedding. She just wore a black shirt with bright patchwork flare pants (which I'm extremely envious of, those pants are like heaven) and clunky mary jane shoes. 
Mum and Steve- Wedding 2003
Myself at the wedding, 2003. I'd literally just turned five. Mum and Steve actually got married on my fifth birthday. :)

These jeans were from an op shop I've only just discovered. It's only a 10-15 minute bike ride from my dad's house and nearly everything is $2. Which is pretty nifty. And they have an amazing collection of 'Mom Jeans'. I just want them all.  But I am a tiny person and I barely fit anything normal people sized. So that kinda sucks.

Yay! High waisted tartan pants! These were from a lovely lady at suitcase rummage. Her entire stall was just hippy clothes everywhere. There was a nice vibe around there. Everything was tie dye and floaty. And everything was cheap too!

My old high-waisted shorts are far too small now, so for $2 I couldn't pass these up.

Two new tops! The one on the right is this awesome Christmas-y-ish Hawaiian shirt thing. And the other one is just a nice yellowy sweater top with short poofy sleeves. 

According to my sister, this top looks like scrambled eggs.

I don't really own many miniskirts and I really liked the print on this one. This was also from the nice hippy lady.

Seriously. Perfect fitting-floral-pastel-frilly-poofy dress. How can I not?

You may protest, but I have a secret love for velvet. I bought another purple one with lace and little 3D roses too. But it
a a really weird shape.

Ugh I love high waisted flares. Especially clown tartan ones.

To be honest I don't actually know whether this would be 60's or 70's. I'm a bit hopeless. But It's so gorgeous.

I also thrifted this lovely fabric for $2. I think I'm going to hang it over my doorway or perhaps make it into a curtain.

Hopefully I'll see you again soon!



  1. oh lucky you, I missed Rummage this time, hope I can go next time, it's such good buying, isn't it?!

  2. Yes, rummage is AMAZING. Better than any op shop, I say.
