Garage Sale Trail day last Saturday was a bit of a wash out but that did not deter the Beatnik crew from bargain chasing and treasure scouting. Armed with our list of local sales, spare change and haggle hats we hit the streets with spirits keener than mustard! It really was worth sporting our parkas and braving the rain as some lovely pieces were snapped up. The Garage Sale Trail is a great concept that creates many different benefits relating to sustainability, community and charity. The event involves lots of people participating in garage sales all on the same day Australia wide. The perfect opportunity for a vintage rummage and shopping spree!
A pit stop for brunch at my fave new cafe gave us the pep up we required to keep trudging on in search for vintage finds. 'Kitchen Table Cafe' is a breath of fresh air in the beach side suburb of Aspendale. It has a fabulously styled interior that is never without beautiful blooms, has a cool kids corner complete with blackboard wall, delicious food and espresso as well as great service. Not a package that often gets delivered all at once!
My star Garage Sale Trail find are these 'Mac's San Remo' wooden crates that I cheekily negotiated from 'NOT FOR SALE' into 'FOR SALE' win!
