Flea Market Finds

Yesterday I made a quick trip into town to have Boo's school shoes mended. The lovely Mr, politely requested I 'don't be too long'. On my way I drove past a garage sale. I slowed down and then remembered the words...
'don't be too long' ...so I continued on my way.

After I had dropped the shoes in, I made a quick stop at the oppy. I managed to find a couple of pillow cases for chopping up .50c each, a little vase that I just had to have $3.00 and a box of envelopes-the lot only $2.00 because really, you can never have too many envelopes!

A few hours later I headed out to collect the shoes and decided this time I would stop at the garage sale. Most of the stuff had been sold and I was kind of kicking myself I didn't stop earlier. I was lucky enough to pick up this lovely little plastic tray-in perfect condition and still in it's box. I love all the little compartments not to mention the colours!! ! I think it will be GREAT to serve afternoon tea in. Well worth the dollar I paid for it. For more 'Flea Market Finds', pop over to Sophie's blog.

I LOVE that little tray, those colours are fabulous! I wonder if it's the same GS my mum dropped into on the week end, she said she got me some surprises.
