Garage Sale Finds


While Mark was out on his motorbike this morning he 'accidentally' found a garage sale. He phoned me to let me know that they had a 3 drawer filing cabinet for sale. The one we had was a little two drawer thing that was filled to breaking point. Okay that was a slight exaggeration but it was full and the drawers were getting harder to open even though I had a major clean out with it not long ago.

Anyway I agreed that a new one would be good so he bought it and we went to collect it a short time later. That was my first mistake. Little did I realise how much of the lounge room we would have to clean and reorganise so that we could fit the new filing cabinet in. After much dusting, vacuuming and tidying up it's now in the lounge. Not a bad bargain for $30. It's in pretty good condition too. I've kept the top drawer free for ALL of my knitting and crochet patterns (~_o) Now I wont be leaving them lying around or in the wicker baskets under the coffee table.

Here are my other bargains ...


How pretty is that box? I just had to get it when I saw the flowers on the lid. It's so pretty. I have no idea what I will use it for yet.


I also got these sheets. Yep we still have a double bed. I know lots of people now have queen size or larger. When I saw these I had to snap them up. I would never be able to find such a bargain in the shops. Complete sets (flat & fitted sheets with two pillow cases) for only $3. It would've been silly to leave them behind.

WOW! Those are some good finds! Of course my favorite is the box....it has flowers. ^_^Although the filing cabinet and sheets are also things I would have scooped up too!
