We tend to form friendships based on mutual understanding, things we have in common. We gravitate to personalities with the same likes, same humour, like-minded ways and similar opinions.
Not surprisingly, I was introduced to one of my best friends via a mutual love of Op Shopping. A conversation that sparked between a childcare worker, and the both of us, at our children's Occasional Care Centre, that went something like this:
Childcare worker says to I: "Did you know, V shops at op shops, and has a store on eBay?"
Childcare worker to my friend: "Did you know that Erica shops at op shops, and does Op Shop tours?"
And thus, a friendship was born!
Another friend and I share a love of sewing, and addiction to pinterest, crafting, and making stuff out of junk! This special friend in particular, gave my son and I the coolest handcrafted birthday gifts last month:
Recycled Tonka Truck Pincushions, yes yes!
(and pretty vintage brooch too)
And a dinosaur jumper complete with spikes and matching tail for the little guy, he adores it!

I feel truly blessed to be surrounded by talented, inspiring, thoughtful friends. Have you formed friendships, through a mutual love of pre-loved fashion, sewing, thrift shopping?
