Imagine my surprise and delight to find a thrift store ( op shop, charity shop) on Raratonga.
The S.P.C.A. has a small beach hut shop on the shore. This photo was taken just after a tropical downpour, usually there are several tables outside.
No vintage knitting patterns or wool to be had.....not surprising on a tropical island in the middle of the Pacific.....so I made do with a 70s-80s summery bangle ( 50 cents) and a well made choker of polished stones with the sort of clasp I like ( $2).
Now I intend to link this post to an 'op shop show off' site hosted by Max in Christchurch, NZ if I can,
and would also like to draw you attention to a post written recently by my bog buddy Lynn in France.
