I don't get to check out garage sales very often due to the limited days that I'm able to go out, but when I saw some ads for a couple of local sales, I knew it might just be worth the effort despite the heat. All I can say is I was not disappointed.One was a lady who used to sell at the Gabba Antique Centre, who has moved all of her stock into a storage shed. It was huge.... I think I only saw about 10% of what she had. I bought the old pop up opera glasses below & a couple of frocks. The other garage sale was some house clearance stock from a couple who call themselves the Aussie Pickers. They have quit their regular jobs, & are picking for old treasures full time. They were the nicest people, & they gave me some of this stuff for free, with the most expensive price being $1. And how funny is this.....my best friend was at the same garage sale about an hour before me, & my Mum about a half hour before me, but none of us knew it until later. Great minds do think alike!

My poor old laptop hard drive is going in to get fixed this week & maybe gone for a while. I've scheduled a few posts for the coming weeks, but if I don't visit your blogs or make comments you'll know why! The timing couldn't be better really as we are heading to the Coast during some time off....surf, sunshine, relaxation, rest, markets, op shops, food & coffee. All of my favourite things. I'll catch up with you soon.
