Shopping in Melbourne on a shoe-string

Shopping in Melbourne on a shoe-string

When people say ‘Melbourne’ I think shopping. It’s a bit of a retail mecca for me, especially with six Savers stores to choose from! This time I went further afield on my thrift bender…all the way down to the Mornington Peninsular and  the...
Tassel-hoff

Tassel-hoff

Tassels are timeless. I’m 99% sure of it. Every season at least one designer features tassels in their collection….you could almost put money on it. I made my first tassel purchase in 2010 at the Salvos in Kempsey (NSW) and scored a black tassel jacket for $7.50! It’s...

Red Cross Opshop

You know it’s going to be a good day when an opshop has sale signs all over its windows! We hit the jackpot at the Red Cross Thrift store in Caloundra a few weeks back with their special offer of 50% off on the second item. I took advantage of it and picked up a few...
