Op-shop gods


21.kalender, originally uploaded by juffrouwjo.

As Kirsty always says, let the op-shop gods know what you want and eventually it will come to you. (Or something like that.) Yesterday whilst pottering around Savers, I picked up a ceramic salt cellar with a wooden lid for HP, as he'd been wanting one for a while now. As luck would have it, there were two there waiting for me, so I picked my fave, and toddled home with it. "Just like Nanna's!" said HP.

I was also looking at my "op-shop will provide" list again in the sidebar, I've got down there "78 records"...well I also picked out a few yesterday out of the stack that had recently been donated to Savers. I got a Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and a couple of others which I might blog tomorrow. Yay!

So in that spirit, oh op-shop gods, I'm after a vintage perpetual calendar, sort of like this one I found on Flickr. I'm getting a happy little collecting of vintage desk stuff going, and I'd love to add one of these. Please?
