I'm a grandmother, a retired teacher, an avid reader who loves historical re-enactment, English Country Dance, writing and Op Shopping. My business is designed to help children experience history through school incursions.

Friendly Staff Make Shopping Fun
Across the road from Graceville Train Station at the very end of the line of shops is a little Op Shop that I somehow never noticed before.

Just Opposite the Graceville Train Station

The McIntyre Centre supports Pony Riding for the Disabled which is a very worthwhile cause.

Ceramics and glassware.

If you are in the area it is well worth a visit. It's tiny and cramped but full of good quality clothing. It's not as cheap as some secondhand stores but there were some lovely coats and jackets and I saw a young man trying on a very smart long sleeved business shirt that looked brand new.

Colourful dishes.

I really scored because I've been looking for an old fashioned ewer and wash basin for years. Usually they are genuine antiques and are alarming prices. As I want to use at school history display, I don't want something valuable. This one was reduced to $30 which was "just right".

I also found a beautiful old lined cotton nightgown, complete with pin tucks. It's so soft and comfortable it'll be a toss up whether it gets worn or put in the costume cupboard. I may be able to get away with using it as a blouse and petticoat with my Victorian skirt. We'll see.

Just managed to break the basin so I'd better go back and see what they have.
