Are you sitting down? Tell me you’re sitting down? You really should be sitting down.
I just bought a Gocco B6 at an opshop for $2.
I told you you should have been sitting down.
We were driving back from a positively splendid time at an indoor swimming pool with waterslides (A new favourite place for Punk & I), where I had whittled my initial $20 for the day down to $5, after pool entry & snacks, when I was surprised to see the oppy at the tiny town between here & the pool still open. I drove past, thinking “Probably no point stopping, I’ve only got $5…” but then I turned around & drove back because, well, I’m me.
In the alcove before you even get in to the opshop proper, I saw this thing of beauty sitting on an old ironing board.
I think I was in a state of shock. I’ve wanted a Gocco for ages but would never be able to afford one, unless, as I often half-joked, half-desperately hoped, I found one in an oppy. I calmly
snatched picked up the boxes & placed them on the counter, reminding myself to breathe.
$2. $2! I still can’t believe it. And the Gocco fabric stamp kit for $1.50. Everything in tip-top condition, including the hilarious 80’s family shot on the box.
This is the find of the year peeps. Fo’sho.
More finds with Sophie!
