( I'm still behind on my loot posts, but I'm jumping to today!)
It is right in the thick of Jumble/Gala/Fete season here.
Yesterday's paper promised approx 7 church/school/fundraiser sales..
As it is my boy's ACTUAL birthday today, a big mission was not to be..
but I KNOW the Cats' Protection League ones ALWAYS deliver. Previous haul posts from their sales here and here!
|I am NOT JOKING!!!|
The woman was almost apologetic looking at my huge boxes and bags of 'junk' and asking me for a tenner..
ALL OF THIS for $10:
|I don't do teddy bears. I got this one for the outfit, and she's in the op shop bag already, sans outfit!(sorry teddy lovers!)|
I knew Iris would love the 'Toot toot' on the funny pink one.
|* I have always wanted an electric knife!!|
* Cutest pair of leather shoes
* Yeh cool shades for one of my cool kids
* Water balloons - one of my kids is OBSESSED with these things!
* A purple 'puffle' (If you have kids you might know about these!)
|Large bag of leis. Got a few projects in mind for those.|
|Old christmas stuff.|
Plus a roll of red ribbon
and a kitsch-as-hell bunch of roses candle.
|* 2 fairy wings|
* 2 fairy hairbands
* 2 pink wigs
* 2 wands!!!!!
|Loads of togs (swimming costumes) and fabric. Incl matching scarf for the dress above.|
|A page from the 1963 Girl Annual.|
I can't help but wonder how many girls' self esteem was ruined by such labelling. They were encouraged to put themselves in boxes like that, and no doubt tried to follow the 'rules' for trying to make themselves look beautiful.
If op shops as we know them disappear, the old fashioned Jumble Sale might see us through!!!
Get out there and into it!!
And by the way, as of today, I've been a mama for 10 years.
