Broken Hill has a great second hand market. There are community markets often, garage sales every weekend, op-shops, 2nd hand furniture and bric-a-brac stores and the town tip even resells stuff tossed in (relatively) good condition. Tab and I love to find the treasures hidden in these places.
Over the past 3 days, I have made 4 trips to the tip shop (making a purchase every time!), plus 1 trip to the Lifeline yard (where they sell 2nd hand stuff other than clothes- which go to the Lifeline op-shop).
Tab accompanied me on 3 out of the 5 trips.
Here's our haul:
|Bird Cage, mini sewing machine, drink cooler, toolbox, portable turntable, sewing machine, sprinkler, steriliser and typewriter|
Here's the two in all their glory:
|Sanyo portable record player/radio: $5|
In the bag for the mini-sewing machine, Tab found an extra little prize!
|Finding a needle in the bag: priceless|
