the seventeenth day: breakfast at cabin fever

After running around very early this morning returning stock from yesterday, I made it to the city with 30 minutes to spare, and am now writing this from next to my delicious toasted sandwich at the new Cabin Fever Cafe. It’s brilliant, Ruth (who runs it) is a champion and the coffee is lovely. There’s even a cuckoo clock and free wireless internet! You should check it out.

Anyway, on my way down to my job in Mandurah yesterday, I met up with Sophia and we did a little bit of op shopping for Two Bucks ‘Til Wednesday. We found some really great things; some perfect leather satchels, a spectacular frilly ’70s maxi dress, many awesome blouses, a so-bad-that-it’s-brilliant leather bustier, and heaps of useful belts, among much more. The little Singleton op shop proved to be a gem as always, they were having a $2 tuesday (all clothes $2! they also have $1 friday, every friday) and all jeans were 50 cents.

Today I’m wearing another dress from Julie, I think this one might have been made in the late ’50s, judging by the fabric and the cool seams on the sleeves:

I’m also wearing an op shop belt, op shop shoes, op shop bag, homemade necklace and Totomoto ring.

    hi hi! I just stumbled upon your blog – it is so lovely!
    I’ve also been delighting in Cabin Fever’s wares this week – isn’t it the best? I can tell it’s going to become the non-clicheic equivalent of a Perth treasure.
    I was just wondering where that op shop is, the one that you mentioned? $1 Fridays? Reading that made my eyes bulge like a cartoon character!

      Hello! Thank you for the kind words.
      The op shop is in Singleton, so if you’re driving down the road that runs between Rockingham and Mandurah (I think it’s Ennis Ave? But I might be wrong…), Singleton is a turn off on the right about 15-20 minutes south of Rockingham. You’ll see a petrol station and a little group of shops and a sign saying “Singleton”, turn right and then the op shop is just one in from the corner on the left. It’s open I think 9am-3pm? Maybe 2pm? Good luck!
