Front yard finally clear of old stuff Ready for Christmas day

The front yard is finally clear of any old furniture waiting to be sold. (Those of you who know my yard will know this is not always an easy achievement a bit like having a clear dining table)
Frankie's famous chairs have found a new table.
and even Arnie is getting into the theme of the season.
Tonight we will be listing some auctions on eBay to help clear a bit of the 2011 surplus of goodies and to make room for the New Year's haul, finger's crossed.

And I just couldn't resist showing these recent mid century finds of Kristen's (now at the WAC) which included this stylish sideboard
and Don Rex extension Table and six chairs.

Thank -you to everyone for another wonderful year of trading. You will be pleased to know Lotte and I returned from hospital and despite a middle of the night ambulance trip back to the Mater only last night, we are once again home and looking forward to a New Year.  Apologies to everyone for the lack of posts and commenting recently and a big, big, thank -you to the handsome and talented Kristen for holding the fort not only on the business front but on the home front as well. 
                                  Merry Christmas and a Happy, safe and Healthy New Year to all xxx.

  4. Hi Katherine, so glad to hear you're back and Lotte is a bit better. I've really been thinking of you this past week, wondering how Lotte is. Thanks to you I've now talked Sue into going in to the WAC, yay! We're on the waiting list so it might be a while yet. Will keep an eye on your listings, some of those look mighty tempting! No rest for the wicked, we're off to do Jupiters on Jan 5, trying not to groan thinking about the effort! Best wishes and Merry Xmas to you all.xx.

  15. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
    of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it
    out better?
