Best Opshop find ever!

I went to a different opshop today and walk right past this in the window. The when I went back to see if there was any movies that Koby would like I read the box.
Print Gocco.
New, never used. $15.
I grabbed it so fast I almost knocked over the shelf it was on. OMG i have been wanting one of these for the loooooooooooongest time but could never justify the high price tag, especially since they are no longer making them and in the next few years supplies are going to be pretty scarce.
But for $15 who could go wrong. So i am googling and youtubing howto's and dreaming up what my few designs are going to be. I am so excited. This has definately made my week. 

See the inks? They are still in their original packaging.
I told mum and she said "oh there is one of those sitting on the shelf at church. They used to print tshirts with them"  "really?" I answered in an oppurtunist way. "Could you see if they have the add on Fabric kit for me?" "Sure thing."
Isn't she a sweetie? The kit to adapt it so it can print on fabric is pretty scarce. I saw it on etsy for sale, US$100.  So hopefully they have it.
Well I'm off to scrible some more ideas down...
. hmmmm.... 
russian nesting dolls, tree silouettes, lovebirds.... 
Sooo excited.
Have a great weekend,


  1. You are so lucky! I've been drooling over these for a long time, but can't justify the price either.

  2. Wowzers! Great deal Mel! Can't wait to see what you make with it!

  3. OMFG I can't believe you found one for such a great price! Op-shops rule :D

  4. Hi Mel, did you receive my email???
