Buy of the Week.........

......this old, tin National Parks & Reserves sign that I found in a Christchurch secondhand store yesterday. Loved it, had to have it. And, as you'd expect, it's found the perfect home in my kitchen. I was feeling particularly satisfied with my purchase - the ultimate bargain I thought UNTIL I interviewed a person this morning, who showed me their original Salvador Dali artwork - picked up at a US garage sale for a mere US$5!!!!! Now THAT'S the sort of luck I want!

I know what you mean. My friend just bought a string of pearls at a antique fair for 200$ and didnt like the catch so took it to a jeweller who recommended a $1000.oo platinum and diamond one in keeping with the pearls - worth $10,000!!! Theres an old irish saying, "if you've got a goose you will get a goose".
