Mornington Salvos for sewing supplies, shoes, teacups and MOSCHINO!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Usually, I pop down to Spotlight or Lincraft when sourcing haberdashery supplies. Recently however, I have been heading toward the craft section of op shops, and have collected quite a stash of thread, elastic, bias binding, zips and buttons.

Salvos in 3-205 Tyabb Rd, Mornington was good to me this week. I purchased this big bag of thread, and a bag of elastic to add to my sewing box. The bag of thread half price..excellent!

Sewing Stash!

Did you see the shoes next to the bags of sewing supplies? Aren't they great? Yep, lucky for me, I spotted these gorgeous peeptoe vintage shoes, in my favourite shoe colour - tan, and they fit perfectly, whoot! Made in Italy

Hello shoes!

I also stumbled accross this stunner.. a genuine 'vintage' MOSCHINO red hand print dress, from the 1990's I'm sure.



Lastly I picked up another vintage tea cup for my collection.

Out of town Op Shops, how I love thee..

Psst...Don't forget to enter the necktie owl giveaway hoot hoot!

No way! I bid on that same dress about 6 years ago in blue and black (it was described as an 80s dress, so not sure how accurate that was) but missed out and was gutted-what an amazing find!!! Love the shoes too-really gorgeous :) Remembering the positives about not living in a city!

Hmm, you could be right, it may well be 1980's? It is true that some of the best finds are to be found in regional places, Mornington is a good 1.5hour from Melbourne CBD. Thats why you get some awesome finds in Byron JeTaimeVintage!!

Yep - the shoes are excellent. I like your polish colour too!

Nice finds, but I have to say that dress is totally wild, not sure if I could wear it though. Well done.

Love the bag of sewing supplies, of course. But those shoes; they're great!
