I went to a Garage Sale on Saturday (last week!)
It was the first in months and months.
I used to go every Saturday, rain or shine in the bad old days..
It's like falling off a log though, only more fun!
So here is a little photo essay:
GARAGE SALE-ING in my town!
|Friday night - the Garage Sale listings are in our local rag. (Waikato Times)3 columns is about all there is most weeks at the moment - it will pick up at the peak times. In a city like Hamilton you can easily do them all if you are focussed!|
|I just do the jumble style fundraiser ones.|
The one I have circled is my favourite - it's a regular gig for the Cats' Protection League and it's very local to where we live..
|7am - NO KIDS are up! That's miraculous!|
Utterly glorious Spring day.
|Bowl of Bircher. The Breakfast of Garage Sale champions.|
I had got all my gear ready the night before, just in case I had all the kids to get breakfasted before I go..
|Driving. I only have to turn 2 corners. I could walk - but that is NOT a good idea for the amount of stuff I plan to get!!|
|The well worn sign!|
|Photo on the left is looking in before it opened. The 'Cat LAdy' is ALWAYS late, so we just hover outside, catching up with the regulars!|
Then we dig in!
|I couldn't photograph it all in one hit.. so here are a few photos of some of what was in the boxes...|
* The cake topper at the top is very old and ceramic
* Retro party ware - how much is enough??!!
|There were SO many books! THis is some of the ones I got..|
