What I bought today...

Just thought that I'd start this topic as nobody has [bothered?] to start it yet!

I was in one of my local charity shops today and bought these women's basket-weave, tassel loafers for only $8.50 AUD! Absolutely brill, to say the least! ;-) Now I can wear them with my new trousers from Sportscraft (see link below) and my Ben Sherman boating blazers! They were made by Australian shoe manufacturer Sandler, as part of their "Easy Steps" collection which still exists today. I think these shoes were an absolute find and would make excellent work and leisure (by that I mean dancing) shoes!

I also picked up two of my lay-aways. The first being two pairs of capris trousers - one pair in black and another in navy. Don't let the "capri" style fool you. They actually look like full-length trouser on me. I paid $105 AUD for each pair, instead of $150.

The second lay-away I picked up today was this lovely dress from Target that I purchased on sale a couple of months ago!

Happy shopping my Mod brothers and sisters! Look forward to reading and seeing what you've bought!

    • Hi Ian!

      Nice to see you posting!! How's the weather in Darwin? It's freezing down here in Ballarat! Anyway pics of the Lammie?

  • I tried to resurrect the Mod Bargain Buys thread with this one, but couldn't find it. Never mind..... here's one for you Revivalist mods; a genuine Sony Walkman from Goodwill $ last, something to listen to all those Duran Duran tapes on that I'd been hoarding since the 80's!

    Oh - and a nice autumnal check Ben ($5!)

    PS I didn't pay for the scrap of broccoli on the counter top - it came free with lunch - lol!
