One Woman's Trash is Another Woman's Treasure

Council Clean Up in our area is fantastic for the thrifty at heart. My best friend and I travel around collecting furniture, books, pots and even the occasional antique. We then take them home make any needed repairs whilst drinking coffee and catching up. Not only do we get a whole lot of new bits and bobs, but we get to spend the day together gossiping! If your lucky you'll pick up a few antiques that have great resale value - only last week we found a teapot worth over $250! A great bonus.
