rockmelon went to the Suitcase Rummage on Sunday, a
blistering hot delightfully sunny day. It was soooo hot i had to buy an umbrella to stay cool enough to cope, surprised how much the shade from a $3 purple swirly umbrella helped, though i ended up slightly sun-kissed.
i had lovely neighbours, i had long chats with Mikaela and met the delightful Laura from Laura J Designs. She had the sweetest beaded head band for sale. I went to her website to ping a pic of it here but it is not pictured, but below is one just as delightful.
The thing is, i go to the markets to sell things not buy things so i didn’t even dare to pick the headband up in case i accidentally bought it. I need to confess though, that at the end of Suitcase Rummage there are always sellers have $1 or $2 clothing sales… so i bought a pair of jeans, a skirt and a cute dress for my 14-year-old and a shirt for me, total spent $6!!! I pulled the shirt out of the suitcase and said to the stall holder ‘How much do you want for this?’ She said
‘Make me an offer.’ So i said
‘How about $1?’ i expected her to barter back and forwards but instead she said
At the end of the day when the car was lovingly unloaded by my 3 wonderful kids, hubby and i sat on the deck in lounge chairs, drank icy ginger beer and watched the sunset over the ocean (ok so i made the ocean bit up, but the rest is true)… ah Sunday i love you!
