There’s nothing like a last minute decision to give you the kick in the pants to get organised now is there?
I must have been living under a rock running a shop because I only just stumbled across the Garage Sale Trail today during my afternoon tea-and-Instagram flick and it’s already in its 5th year.
It is Australia’s biggest community and sustainability event and each year there are over 3 million items for sale!
It is happening this Saturday October 24th and I decided I wanted to take part. Yes. 2 days before the event that people have been registering and planning for, for around 2 months.
As I said earlier – Nothing like a last minute decision to give you a red hot poker up the jacksy to get organised! (*note to self to find out the origins of this somewhat uncouth saying, stay tuned for a later blog about my findings)
Minette’s Vintage has always been interested in community and sustainability so this is a wonderful way to introduce our new community of Yarraville to Minette’s and open the doors to our new space for old friends to come and visit, have a natter and grab a few bargains while we’re at it.
It also means that the new sunglasses stand that finally arrived today (broken and seriously ugly) after chasing it through a TNT warehouse disaster a week ago will need to be completely disassembled, appropriately découpaged and reassembled lickety-split.
So my friends, this is my invitation to you to come along to sunny Yarraville this Saturday, check out our new space, have a poke through the racks and baskets of goodies on offer, make some new friends, maybe wander into the village for a coffee and some nosh and then go about your weekend as you please.
All details can be found here.
Hope to see you,
