As promised, I popped into town this morning to check out the op shops. It's a small town, so there's only two, but I came away with treasures:
A 1950s-style chair ($30: perfect for reading by the fire until I decide on what I want there in the long term), a stack of old National Geographic magazines ($5: because every holiday home needs old National Geographic magazines!), a white plastic tub for doing dishes in ($2: I'll get plumbing and a sink installed eventually but in the meantime I can get water from the toilet block taps), a 'Be a health Kiwi' poster ($5: a surprise find in an Australian op shop but stranger things have happened) an old biscuit tin ($2) and a tea towel (50 cents). Did you notice what the tea towel was?
