Heck, last time I tried to pile a big old armchair into the boot of my car it wouldn't fit, and then I just about busted something trying to put it back where I'd scavenged it from. Sometimes a station wagon does seem more sensible...but I digress.
Today I struck gold. I spotted an old Sunbeam Mixmaster under a pile of stuff, and since I've been lamenting giving mine away when I moved to Melbourne, I had to stop and scavenge. The mixer went straight into the car. And then I spotted something else, and something under that, and one thing led to another...next thing I know the lovely lady in the house where this stuff had resided came out to say hi and see if she could help me!!! I love recycling.
There's a few old tins there (they always remind me of my Grandma) a lovely old Thermos flask, a plastic basket, and three wonderful old umbrellas which I am just in love with. They need a repair, so I'm off to look at this blog for some tips. Happy scavenging to you. Out with the new and in with the old, perhaps that's my motto for 2010.
