Violet


My daughter (R) and I disovered a new op shop in town so we ventured in for a look. I can safely say it was extremely tempting but the prices were a bit high for our budget so we didn't end up buying anything. There were literally loads of vintage items everywhere in corners and on shelves but in amongst the goods I managed to take a selfie next to a neon alien looking light which was casting a violet tinge on the walls.

Linking up with Weekend Reflections and The Weekend Roundup.

So in other words you were paying premium prices for what is in effect some one else's rubbish or house clearance. No difference here then. Better off at a charity shop they tend to price them better.

I would like to visit that shop, it looks like there are goodies there. I would not want the Alien light but it does cast a pretty violet glow near you. I like seeing the photo of you.

We have a charity shop here in town. We donated some books and of course brought a few more home. It's hard not to when they are €1 for three books.

...I would love to have a piece of neon!
Great job getting a lot of "V" words into one shot, Have a lovely weekend.

Oh my goodness, I wonder who would buy that neon alien? Great selfie!
Yes, you managed a few extra Vs in your post.

I hardly ever buy anything in a store like that but amazingly photos are free!!

I love to rummage around in antique shops. Sometimes I buy something but like you, I watch the price. Your op shop looks pretty interesting.

Not sure about that light. When you put a light on at night it should be warm colours. Blue light wave lengths mess with melatonin and sleep. Good selfie tho.

good for you for resisting the temptation ;-)
Looking good there!!! I'm always expecting shops like that to charge me admission or a photo-fee, because that's all I ever do is take pictures. Not only over my budget, but also I don't need any more "stuff" because we live in small houses --I'm always trying to get rid of stuff or find extra storage space -- makes it easier to say no. )))
