Queanbeyan Swap Meet '09


It was a miserable morning. It was raining and so cold. The Queanbeyan Swap Meet is held in Spring so the weather is usually warm and the cars in the car show are sparkling in the sun.

Half of the vendors didn't bother to unpacked many of their items and those that did quickly packed theirs away. We did a quick lap, had an egg and bacon roll and quickly proceeded home with only a small load.

Vintage Lloyd Loom commode chair, a birthday present from my sis :)
1930's Japanese Geranium ware tea pot ( I now have 6 pieces) $5, blue folding bed tray $10, Red Tulip lolly lantern $1, faux tortoiseshell shaving set $10
Cute metal table $10

The next Queanbeyan Swap Meet will be held over 2 days at the Showgrounds 23rd-24th September 2010. See you there...
