Flea Market Find



Op Shopping on your own, discovering rare gems is one thing, enlisting your mother to scout on your behalf is another. Without any prompting, my mum found herself at a garage sale in Mentone where everything was for sale. To her delight, the whole house was decked out in shabby chic furniture, with nothing over $30. A few frantic calls to me, and she'd managed to fill her boot full of fantastic buys for my home. So this week I thought I'd share one my favourite pieces of furniture that has found a new home at my place.


For more Flea Market Finds, head over to Sophie's at  Her Library Adventures.

Just the key words, Garage Sale, everything, under $30, is enough to give me a chocolate rush! Good on you and your mum!
