Hey all. How was your weekend?
I had a pretty good weekend. Cards and a few drinks Friday night, garage saleing with the boy and mum Saturday morning, some tidying up around the house including a trip to the dump and a few beers and barefoot bowls on a lovely Saturday afternoon. Yesterday we went to a local car show and the weather was almost perfect.
My best buys this weekend
I saw this bike and although I recently purchased a new 'vintage look' bike I couldn't leave this behind. I asked the husband and wife team how much it was and the lady say 'make me an offer'. I actually find that really frustrating because I really had no idea how much they wanted and didn't want to offend them by offering too low a price. Eventually they said they would start it at $50. I ummmed and ahhhed but didn't really have $50 in the budget for it and told the lady the most I could give her was probably $30 and surprisingly she let me have it. Even more surprising was the boy was quite supportive in my purchase! I think the lady was having a bit of a hard time letting it go since it was her original bike from the 60s but I assured her I'd take good care of it.
I LOVE IT!
I also picked up an old school CANON video camera - another thing that the boy thought was pretty cool. This was $2. I have an idea of how I want to display this so one day I might be able to show you a photo of it in all its vintage display-worthy glory.
Photos from the car show
I'll finish with some photos from the Car Show (my mum and dad are in our local FX-FJ Holden Car Club).
It was a beautiful day at Leyburn, Queensland for the Historic Leyburn sprints.

Hope your week is wonderful!
