I've had heaps of great op shop finds lately, but this week there is a clear winner. Check out Poppet's new doll house! It even came with a shoe box full of plan toy furniture, all for the super bargain price of $30! I just did a search for plan toys and the lounge suite alone(which is in the box) is $37. I loved decorating doll houses when I was a kid. I would buy from garage sales or op shops, give them a revamp and sell on for a profit. I wonder if the sales assistants were on to me when I asked for wallpaper samples? Always in a small print , usually just enough for one room. They don't seem to give samples anymore, though I was thinking of doing feature walls from the scrapbooking paper. Paint test pots are always great for jobs of this scale too.
I also got a bundle of embroidered doilies from another op shop, which I plan to transform into baby shoes and bibs. I also got the kiwiana hankie from my favourite vintage shop, which I plan to use on a cushion.
