Well he quickly rang me, being rather annoyed he couldn't pop in himself as he was headed on a call out himself, and I high tailed it around the corner. As fate would have it another local dealer had been there the day before so I had missed out on a few treasures I'm sure, but as I say, I am not greedy and was happy with the items I came home with. But what has this got to do with plonk you say? Well, let me finish...If a garage sale is close by I sometimes will pop back in later in the day or evening as you never know what else will have been added to the sale and lets face it you are still a good 12 hours or so ahead of the public and the official start time so there is no skin off your nose to do so. So I did this last night. When I got there, there was a bit of a post garage sale organizers party going on, with the lovely lady and her girlfriends (all I'm sure were well over 70 ) and sure enough there was a few more goodies I liked. We did the usual add up and then I got what in this game is not an altogether uncommon request...." You can have it for a bottle of Sav Blanc..." giggle giggle giggle go the ladies... So off I speed to my local, retrieved the icy cold bottle (Not Jacob's Creek, an additional request), returned and gathered up my treasures. I got some of the treasures below for my troubles.
The clock below I had purchased earlier in the day.
Along with this snazzy tray mobile, which has a tray that pulls out.
and this nice copper and black gallery.
I couldn't resist this deck chair.
Or this nice lead light cabinet and another tray mobile below.
Other finds during the week are pictured below...
This chair I loved and has already sold along with the sea grass table below.
This Smiths clock works so well and reminds me of a government office.
Large heavy wooden farm house cupboard
These bags always remind me of my brothers high school days.
Fabulous pair of trestle ladders.
Cute pink and yellow metal meat safe, which I think would make a cute end table or bedside.
Hope you all had a great week.
