Holiday Opp Shopping!

Who’d have thought I’d go on holidays and manage to discover a whole lot of Opp shops in the area! I visited my sister in Mooloolaba and on the way home I stopped at Maroochydore as I’d discovered there’s a long stretch of Opp shops along Aerodrome Road. I cleaned them out of toy sheep!

This magnificent ram looks brand new and was only $4.50!

And I found this little one in the Noosaville newsagent.

Wow! where am I going to put them all when I get home???

It’s rather large and made from vinyl so is water repellent to a certain degree. I was quite exhausted after this purchase so I grabbed a coffee and a couple of sinful jam donuts 🙂

And totally not related to sheep, I picked up these two pairs of shoes. I have more of these at home in different colours so I was really happy to pick up these ones. They are so comfy!

I’m also thinking about selling some of my knits through my MelsNattyKnits Facebook page. Once I’m home I’ll start sorting out what to sell.

I’ll leave you with a couple of my everyday views at Noosaville.

  1. What a lovely vacation for you !!! So very picturesque ! Makes for such tranquil , pleasant , relaxing days for you !! Enjoy !!!
    Love your little “Sheep ”
    I volunteer at a historical site in the greater Los Angeles area and they have “live Merino Sheep & Angora goats ( my fav ! )( plus Texas Long Horn Cattle & Percheron Horses) plus a gift shop. Several little tiny sheep follow me home from the gift shop, periodically!.
    So I appreciate that I’m not the only one who can’t resist taking some tiny Sheep home with me!
    Especially since I can’t take a lamb or goat home with me !!
    Always inspiring & fun to follow what your up to next !!!
    Fondly, Terry
