Happy Saturday - Garage Sale Glee!!!
There is hardly a weekend that will pass where I don't find myself perusing a garage sale or two. Some weekends are even dedicated to this activity. It is not uncommon to see me burning around town with a car full of newly purchased bric-a-brac, potplants, furniture, fabric, etc, etc... The hunt for a bargain is one of my favourite pastimes.
This week however I had decided to give the hunt a rest. I was going to give the opshops a miss and the garage sales a wide berth. You see, my post-holiday pockets are empty! So, I was sitting at a friends house, watching the AFL grand final, as you do, when I received a message on my facebook page that read - garage sale on Dunsborough lakes drive, lots of vintage sheets and fabric, etc... Those of you who covet vintage fabric will know how hard it can be to come across. I can go weeks opping, garaging, ebaying, without finding a single worthy purchase. So I leapt out of my seat, left my child with my friends and raced around the corner in search of this promising garage sale. Within 5 minutes I had found the house and within 10 I had bought nearly everything this lovely lady had to offer.
I reasoned to myself, what are overdraft accounts for, if not emergencies such as these??
So thank you so much lovely miss who tipped me off!!
Happy weekend! Has anyone else found anything amazing so far??
