The last big day out.

Today my oldest daughter and I went on our big day out. The last one in the row for this year.
She wants do go shopping and than especially second hand shopping. I'm a big fan of second hand shopping so we had the day of our live!!

There is a really cool big second hand clothing shop in Petone near Wellington. We spent the whole morning in the shop. And as the pictures shows, we had fun trying things on and buying.
We came home with 5 bags full and spend less than $150.-
So we are not cold this winter. Look at my 'NEW" boots!

After a great lunch we did some birthday shopping and we went to the Dutch shop. We still like the dutch dropjes and speculaas. By the time the shops were closing our feed were ready to go home as well. We stoped for a nice ice cream at "the beach store" in Paikakariki, they have the most wonderful place to sit and enjoy your ice cream.

When we cam home we run to the shower, after a big day out second hand shopping you feel a bit sticky I can tell you. But we had a great day!

So girls start thinking what we can next year.

Can't wait until my daughter's idea of a great day is to go second hand shopping.
Right now I think she'd rather go visiting fairies!! (She's 3)

We have a dutch shop here in Adelaide, but it's not nearly as nice as yours. Looks like you all had a great day :)

sounds like you had a great day. My kind of thing to do. Just wish we had a really good clothes store. Some of the charity shops are beginning to charge more than the original price tag - thats old ladies for you though!

Wat een berg kleding!!! Mooie laarzen ook! En nog wel voor zo'n koopje! Grappig dat jouw dochter het nog steeds leuk vindt om naar de kringloop te gaan! Die van mij vinden het ook helemaal geweldig! En wat ik er nou zo mooi aan vind, is dat ze met spullen daar vandaan (soms wat beschadigd en vaak verre van nieuw) toch helemaal superblij zijn.
Nog een fijne dag!

Hallo Jacoline,
Wat een gezellige dag hebben jullie gehad...mijn dochter (15) houdt ook zo van second-hand !!! En wat leuke dat jullie een Dutch shop hebben !! Oh ja, die eitjes gevuld met bloemetjes uit je vorige post vind ik helemaal super :)
Groetjes, Janneke.

Great day!! And how great is that Dutch shop! Cool that you still can get dropjes! And the new shoes are great!


This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
