Saturday morning we were all in the car doing our last minute bits and pieces for Christmas. Which is code for bottle shop trip for obligatory gifts for in-laws and other supplies. As we were driving we past an op shop I'm familiar with, and I need the usual rubber necking as we drove past to see what I could see out front.
GASP at the end of a clothing rack I could see they had what appeared to be several tooled leather bags hanging. I said to the Ben that's crazy I wouldn't have them outside the doors of the shop they're rather coveted these days. We continued on to the bottle shop, bought snags in bread from the Rotary Club Christmas Sausage Sizzle on the way out, drove back down the street and then Ben pulled into a car park down the road from the op shop, I left everyone in the car eating their sausages in bread and walked down the road. I had five different bags to consider, all reduced down to $20 and this beauty had the nicest design.
I promptly paid the lady at the counter and walked back to the car and happily said well that's a very Merry Christmas for this mumma.
Funny thing though is I must have channeled some special energy this week because earlier in the week I also nabbed this, fine tooled leather belt for fifty cents.
What a way to end the year with such pretties don't you think?
