A diary of the projects, hurdles, rewards and family life at we recorded at Wise Acres, our former homestead in Horsefly, BC. (Careers and teenagers have forced us back into the city, at least for a little while.)

10th Annual Town-Wide Garage Sale

Today was Garage Sale day in Horsefly. Here's how it works...if you would like to be part of the town-wide garage sale, you must register your home with the organizer. Then she makes up a map and lists all the participating houses on the map. Maps are available for purchase at local shops for $2 with proceeds going to the Christmas Hamper Program. Then rain or shine...everyone drives around, hunting for bargains. Here are the treasures we found...
Yes, that is a Vita-Mix which I got for a meagre $5 and that thing beside it is a jelly strainer, which can also be used for making cheese and yogourt and that one was a dollar! We also got a few buckets and odds and ends and a nifty tin cooler with a spout which looks great for lemonade.

We're staying pretty lean still after our last move, but possibly next year, we will have a table.
