If you have ever donated something to an OpShop and wondered if it was pointless, or whether someone would actually want that the fact of the matter is that yes, someone will want that, and someone will be blooming grateful for that wee bit of history you decided was no longer wanted in your home. You know the phrase, one mans trash is another mans treasure – true.
With the holidays on, today has been the first day I have been able to get into my favourite Dunedin OpShop, ReStore, and oh what a time I had! I came away with Vintage books, balls for the kids, a Moonhopper, some Vintage 1950’s curtains, vintage Enid Blyton storybooks, loads of fabric, and some Vintage black and white photo’s. This part I find a little sad – there was an entire box of someone’s collected photo’s starting from 1910, and running through to the late 1980’s. Why did no one want these? I really couldn’t ignore these. I’m not quite sure what I will do with them, but for a start I will share them with you x
