Treasure Today.........

An early start today with Mitchell at work by 6 a.m.  I decided to stay in town awhile to catch a 'Jumble Sale' at a church at 7 a.m.

A big down in the city centre, old church, where the congregation would be mostly oldies - Treasure to be had for sure.

I sat outside reading the paper in my car and at 6.40 a.m. I wandered on in.

Oh My Goodness!  I was late!! 

They were working in pairs! Pros! 

Oh my!  I thought I knew the ropes!

My heart was beating so fast by this stage.  Where to start, what to look at first!!

And, then I spied this!

What a beaty, in a little lock up case of her own!

$12 and she is all mine!

I should have grabbed a box at the door, like the ones in the know had! 

I also got a lovely Rosie tin and a lovely little sandwich tray. 

I was holding off because I also had plans to go to an Antique & Collectible show today as well, unfortunately I didn't make it there, so hopefully tomorrow I will get over there, maybe there will be some treasure left for me then.

Most unwell at the moment and couldn't muster the energy to do another thing today.

But, I must say, I am pleased with this little beauty!!
