As I expected, last weekend's garage sales/jumble sales were AWESOME.
Kath and I left home before 7am (I know)
and we had a couple of hours
of blissful treasure hunting.
I walked into one sale and I must have breathed out a happy sigh. A friend who was there heard and said
"Is this your Happy Place?!"
And I said
"Yes. Why Yes it is!!!"
Laugh out Loud!
This will be part one as I got quite a lot.
|I FINALLY found a typewriter. I have been coveting one for YEARS.|
This one is exactly like the one Mum had.
|It was $1.|
Thank you Masonic Lodge.
(Iris is sporting a new dress-up dress, 50c)
|Sweet smelling, |
not filthy or smelly AT ALL
(coz sometimes these old things can be!)
and so funky.
|I LOVED this little box.|
|Hot curling set inside, which I won't be needing..|
But I LOVE the box.
|This bag was 20c and I knew it would have something cool in it (as I flung it into my box of stuff)|
|Swizzel sticks from NZ airlines in a bygone era..|
Kiwi/tiki on the end..
|I LOVE them. And they won't take up much room in my cupboard! Bonus!|
|Also on a NZ theme! Leather bag, large.|
|That is the type of stuff that you use to line cupboards and shelves, and Mum used to cover our school books in it!|
I love the frames with the tassels.. I have a wee stash of these now.
You can get so much bang for your buck at Jumble Sales.
