Half price $2 skirt

Monday, November 22, 2010

In my top tips for op shopping blog post, I have mentioned half price bargains to be found in Salvos (Australian) op shops. Each week items labelled with a certain colour; blue, yellow, purple, orange, pink are half price.

Here is an 80's pleated skirt purchased for $2 a few months back, labelled with a half price coloured tag of the week. The skirt looks really terrible at full length because I am too short....

But the fabric is so pretty, almost like a painting....

So a simple chop off the length, sew of the hem, and it looks much better:

Look out for half price coloured tagged clothes in Salvos. Whilst half price tags relate to garments that have been in store the longest, and are reduced to clear, you may find some treats!
