This is going to be very pic heavy, even with the combined shots. Sorry about the grammar. It is late and I am bleary eyed, but I have to get these up as it seems all this awesome stuff just keeps coming my way faster than I can post it! I'm linking up with Flea Market Finds again this week. There is a 100 contributor goal this week so if you have something to share, just follow the link.
Last Saturday I was up early and on a whim, I took a look at the Garage Sales on Gumtree. There were a couple close by that sounded interesting. The first I couldn't find so went past the second which I had less expectations for. One peek down the driveway convinced me otherwise. There was no sign on the main road pointing to it and the only advertising was on Gumtree. And I was there all alone for AGES having a lovely chat and picking through a veritable treasure trove. The very first thing I picked up was the iron and glass horse shadow lamp. When I was told a $2 price I knew this was going to be good so was more enthusiastic in my selection. I spent my $20 but really wanted to get the knee control Singer in a nice wood case ($10) so I said I would be back.
The minute I got back I rang my sister and said she HAD to come down quickly and come back with me as I had barely touched the surface. I had some brekky, sorted the kids who were up by then and went to leave and go to get some more cash, when my sister turned up and wouldn't let me get more money first. So back we went. There had been a few other people by then but not many at all. My sister and I had another lovely chat with the lady. By the time we had finished our selection we were good buddies lol. She said we could name our own price but we didnt want to do that so she then said $10!!!!!! My Sis counted what she had later and there were around 30 things in her bag alone, let alone mine. We both thought that was absolutely ridiculous and my Sister gave her $20 + $10 for the sewing machine. Still ridiculous, but it was all we had on us.
So anyway, most of this came from her shed, and isn't in perfect condition but it has that sweet salvage charm. and if that wasn't enough, we passed a heap of signs out on the main road so stopped at a few more along the way. Enjoy the pics!
here. be sure to send me any good frame ideas if you have them. I have put some ideas on my pinterest already.
This one is my favourite so far:
And lastly, a little cup of rubber stamps. Marked $1, she didn't bother counting them in.
