When you move to a small town finding a building with a ‘Senior Citizen’s Social Club’ sign on it really is golden.
On Saturday I was driving to the shop to do my day (I always go too early) and happened upon a garage sale in the social club building. Normally I don’t do garage sales – the likelihood of being stuck chatting to a nutter is too high. And the likelihood I have change is low so I don’t bother.
I haven’t been op-shopping that much lately. I have heaps of stuff and it’s been a long time since I found any really great treasure because it feels like everything is a bit picked over or just uninspiring.
However, the hall was filled with great old lady tat. I even saw Wedgewood – and a few really great things worth a lot of money (that I didn’t get). I got two pieces of vinyl – for making bags and purses – a crazy green fish vase, which is now choking on daffodils in the bathroom, a beautiful lemon glazed honey pot and a really old but great silver teapot.
