Happy Friday!


Hi y'all!
Jenny from Melbourne Op Shop Tours emailed me the other day and said how about we give Lady M readers a double pass worth $50 for a tour and I said heck yes!
It's fair to say that I love op-shopping, above is just a tiny selection of some of the outfits, accessories and even art work I have picked up in op-shops.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, winner announced next Thursday 15th October 5pm AEST.

Emma said...

yes please! i didn't eve know they existed - think i'll probably have to go regardless of whether i win - though it would be nice!

Jetsetting Joyce said...

Wow I'm impressed that you scored your outfits from op shops! They are very stylish. I'd love to go on a tour myself, my wardrobe needs a spring-stock (as opposed to a spring-clean).

What a fantastic prize!
I would love a tour
I am an op shop virgin really (apart from savers for 80s dress ups)

Dear Lady Melbourne
I have been following your blog for many months now - it is fabulous. You have a great sense of style. I would love to go on one of the Op Shop tours, I have been meaning to go on one for ages now but with two kiddies its a bit of a juggle. Hope to see you soon at the next Round She Goes market. Cheers, Maria

I do adore my op shopping.

Freya Croft said...

Is there anything more satisfying in the shopping world than a really good op shop find? I don't think so!

Kyles said...

Isn't it amazing how even art work can make you want to go op-shopping. Perhaps I'll head out and try and find something just as inspiring today.

I was dying to enter the GPO comp but I miss you in Melbourne by 2 days... what a pity. Obviously I couldn't do the tour (unless it's this Friday hee hee) so you don't need to include me either. Just wanted to comment! :)

Fiona said...
