|Last weekend we had a garage sale at school. It was amazing how much stuff, and good quality stuff, was donated.|
I got quite a few things, but it didn't even leave a dent in what there was.
It was all reasonably priced, and for the last hour we said that punters could get a box or bag and fill it up with ANYTHING for $1. I strongly recommend this if you're running a sale. It means there is WAY less stuff to get rid of when it's finished. And I got some $1 box bargains for realz!!!!
|Love these shoes.|
|We had this cute game when we were kids. the rakes are worth 15 points and the spades give you 5 etc!|
|There were lots of books. I was overwhelmed. I didn't do too much rummaging.|
|Very cute rattley bunny - about 7cm high.|
|Cute old shirt for Arlo. I find it quite hard to find genuinely old items - I think kids trash their clothes so they don't often get passed on..|
|Tin rubbish bin. Love.|
|I might get a chance to teeter around in these one day. They aren't totally my style, but I really like them.|
|This is a huge table cloth. This is 1/4 of it. It's a coolio one.|
|These cards are actually from Vinnies the other week. They usually have a stash, and are 10c each. Remind me of the cards we got given as kids.|
|For some reason this photo didn't appear in the last post, despite the fact that I put it in. Weird. |
Angry Birds party.
I love doing kids parties but am a total last minute person (it's my personality type)
I also don't like things to look too contrived
(not hard for me!)
and I avoid straight lines of things
(the current fashion in party tables, I've noticed)
