Op Shop Bargains

I went Op Shopping with Mark the other day. In fact we've gone a couple of times this week. In our town and the next one over from us.

How cool is this marble lazy susan? It was practically a steal.
I found some lovely plates too but I forgot to take a photo of them :(  They have these pretty flowers around the edge. 

Brodie modelling his safety gear. I don't know if he looks good or scary.
Mark found some safety gear for Brodie to wear while he rides his scooter. This stuff is ridiculously expensive when its brand new. So when Mark found it in one of the op shops he took Brodie there to try it on to see if it would fit. It was an absolute bargain! All Brodie needs to do is get his helmet, sit for his learners and do the riding course & he'll be able to go out on his scooter. It's a bit of a scary thought but I know that it will happen eventually.

Poetess, thank you. I never thought about using the lazy susan for cheese & crackers. I'll definitely do that from now on. We like having a cheese platter for supper now & then.

Love finding bargains! Doesn't it make you feel like you got away with something?

It most certainly does Beverly. Sometimes it makes me even feel a little guilty.
