There's a new (well been open about a month) Sally Army shop where I got this the other day.
|These cute tweeters are wrestling for space on my bird collection shelf. It's getting crowded on there!|
|Mug from Staffordshire $1 (half price shelf at Crosslight Trust Oppy)|
|This book is hilarious. At first I thought it said Dora the STONER but I took a second look and realised she's actually a hoarder.|
|She stashed up so much her house looked like this..|
Then she had to donate all her stuff to a jumble sale so she could start hunting and gathering again.
Ring any bells anyone?!!!
(If you're local - it's at the Waimarie Community gardens in Wellington St, and it's open five days from 9-3)
It was really lovely. No clothes but a great stash of everything else..
|You know we love these spoons at my place. The kids have their favs.. I know that one 3rd from the left is going to be the new fav with a couple of my boys... mmm wonder why?!|
|These were 10c each and there are heaps left..|
|A cute little 20c box of cake candle holders..|
|Book $1 that features some great Enid Blyton stories amongst other things..|
Every now and then signs pop up saying
FREE GARAGE SALE (FREE BBQ/ENTERTAINMENT etc)
Sounds like they must have a catch - sometimes they are church groups trying to advertise for new members- but quite often they are churches or other community groups literally doing something brilliant for the community. SUCH a good idea - and another form of freecycling...
there was one at a community hall near me the other day.
It was very relaxed and there was loads of stuff. People seemed less desperate in their rummaging styles than they are at regular jumble sales, interestingly.. There was some amazing furniture.
I just got a few things..
|Truly awesome cotton fitted sheet.|
|Crochet blanket (obvs.) in great colours|
|70s red and black robe and a very cute, beautifully made vintage girl's dress..|
|An absolutely beautiful (but falling to bits on one side) 50s quilt. The most amazing fabrics in classic 50s fabrics.|
|Not sure what to do about the side that's disintegrating, but it was too gorgeous NOT to snaffle up..|
