So this post is a bit of a long time coming, but in April I had the pleasure of visiting Melbourne. There was no shortage of great 2nd hand shops. Instead of the big blowout I could have made, I ended up spending a pretty reasonable grand total of $128.98.
For this I got (second hand):
- two jackets – the white one: $8.99
- the blue one: $10
- a cardigan: $7.99
- a necklace: $35
- boots: $67.
The necklace isn’t second hand but is vintage. I bought it from the local Melbourne Rose St market. The blue coat was from ‘Value City’ op shop near Preston. The white jacket and cardigan were from the Sallies in Carnegie. The boots were from a second hand shop in Portsea right on the beach front. My friends managed to find some excellent $1 belts from an op shop in Portsea. Score!
