Opshopathon II

There have only been two of them, but this is one of my favourite events of the year.  A group of opshopping fanatics visiting as many opshops as humanly possible in one day.  The first was in December 2010.  Last year it was postponed due to busyness and rescheduled for March, but this time it was tinged with sadness.  Amanda was moving away in a few weeks and part of the reason for the Opshopathon was to give her a good send-off doing something fun.

So on Saturday 3rd March, five excited ladies hit the opshops in Willetton, O'Connor and South Lake...eight in total.

Some people don't get what's so exciting about opshopping.  I tell them, "It's the thrill of the treasure hunt."

Here's what I came home with:

C is for cookie.  This top will be for PJs.

Judy Blume was one of my favourite authors as a kid.  I want to collect all of her books.

Hahaha.  I love this sign!  Duncan thinks it's rude, but, for me, it reminds me not to fall into the trap of people-pleasing.

Amanda has photos on her blog here.

I LOVE op-shopping! I don't always come away with stuff, but when I do I am always very excited about my finds.
What a great idea to make a big group day of it. There are a few ladies in our church who enjoy it too, maybe I should suggest a group outing :)

YES definitely suggest a group outing. It's a lot of fun finding hideous outfits for each other as well. :)

I only just saw this, so glad you blogged about it too. You got a great haul and I can't wait to do it again!!!
