Mum and I braved a chilly Saturday morning in Toowoomba on a quest for some bargains, and bargains we got. I won't bore you with all the copious amounts of crockery I scored for the wedding collection but instead show you a few of my favourite finds. These include a vintage scrabble board, a cute Walt Disney rabbit squeaky toy (does anyone recognise the character?), a beautiful tin and a pre-1970s camera.
The first three items were picked up at a church jumble sale - my favourite kind of garage sale! I got a whole pile of stuff including an old mirror and industrial fan (currently awaiting repairs over at mum and dad's place), some Meakin crockery, a magazine holder and other treasures for a grand sum of $14. Can't go wrong!
I couldn't get a great pic of the camera so here is a pic courtesy of everyone's favourite online encyclopedia, Wikipedia! It's a Yashica Minister III reportedly introduced into the market in 1963. Mum and I got a whole pile of stuff from this garage sale and I offered the lady $5 for this (she had said it was $10) and it was a deal. I wonder if it's usable?! Might have to do some research!
