Trash or Treasure...?

Our Church held their big Garage sale fundraiser today. It has been raining almost all week so when we looked out the window and saw small patches of blue we jumped in the car, pockets full of loose coins ready to go discover what bargains lay in store...

There were toys, jewelery, bric a brac, sweets, homemade cakes, tea and coffee.

Each kid bought something with their pocket money. What came home with us was almost less important than the fun they had exploring the contents of the tables and bargaining with the ladies behind them!

Gareth ended up with a jar of lollies and the game "Battleships" A game that Byron had been reminiscing about last week!

Sian bought a surprise for her friend Amy who is having her birthday party very soon.

Don't worry Amy, this is just a little extra, you will still get a proper present too!

Rhiannon came away with a bag of jewellery for the bargain price of $2!

My bargain of the day had to be the car charger with a connector at the end that fits nothing electrical that I own. It was 20 cents and I am thrilled to bits with it. Why? Because the tip of the charger screws off and perfectly fitted my normal car phone charger that had lost its own connector only yesterday!

Trash or treasure? You decide!
