garage sale

More Downsizing

With the sale of Matilda our nomadic camping lifestyle has come to an end, at least for the time being. So it was time to downsize even further, no point the camping gear being stored away taking up valuable space. Time for a garage sale.

I had put an ad in Gumtree on the internet and also in the local paper. I wonder if any one will see them? It was to be from 7-30 to 12-30.

At 6-30 Saturday morning the first vehicle pulled up. We were still having breakfast so I went out and said we will not be ready till 7am. “oh we will wait” they said. By the time I lifted the garage door there were 3 lots of people waiting to swoop in on any bargains…

Having a garage sale is lots of fun. We had a garage sale in September 2009 when we had decided to start travelling and downsize from a 3 bedroom house to a one room Granny flat. (click here to take a look into my archives and see the start of our dream) We chat to the people and sell them “stuff” that we are amazed they will use. I put in my old Nikon SLR that I haven’t used for years. It was the first thing to sell. Maybe I should’ve put more than $25 on it !!! The cd’s and books were well rummaged through with most people finding at least one treasure to take away. I intended to take photos during the day of the sale but some how the morning just raced by and it was all over before I could stop to take a photo or two.


After the excitement was all over and we had a well-earned cup of tea. I wandered around the garden and I would like to show you these beautiful flowers that are out at the moment.
