fab finds

It is so good not to have sport on a Saturday morning over summer!
Soccer season just about does us in- trying to co-ordinate 6 kids with games and refereeing responsibilities, so much so that in recent years we have banned the children from signing up for summer sport that involves Saturday morning games- we are so mean!!!

So anyway with our Saturday morning  free and VCH not playing golf,
 the two of us went garage saling, 
the kids were mostly still in bed, 
so after telling B1 and B2 what we were doing we snuck headed off!
Having his work ute is such a bonus in getting stuff, 
much easier than trying to fit stuff into the tarago!
We got some great buys- so nice that people were selling at garage sale prices and not thinking they were antique stores- my pet peeve!

Moving sales where people are getting rid of lots of stuff are the best!
This table and chairs $20.

This little egg cupboard $2

Nesting box $2- you should see it now!

Doll's house and furniture $5
and those are just some of the things from the first garage sale we hit!

These frames were 20c each- you should see them now!


 Side of the road find while out garage saling- looked like it fell off the back of a truck, absolutely filthy but FREE!!

 $10 for this outdoor setting

$2 for this little industrial stool!

 Three rusty birdcages @ $2 each.

This is only a fraction of what we found.
We really hit the jackpot!
I will be back next week with some afters and some exciting news.

Have a fabulous weekend!
No garage saling this weekend, 
town dress up party for the kids is on 
and VCH is helping at the church working bee.
