Milton Swap Meet '10


We ventured to the Milton Swap Meet for the first time this year. We decided to make a weekend of it and take the kids to the beach on the way back (pictures in another post). It is a beautiful little coastal town and has some really wonderful antiques stores, one of the best was just near the Showgrounds, the Turnball Bros Antiques.
The Milton Swap Meet is one of the newest running swap meets in NSW, run by the local Rotary Club of Ulladulla, at the local Showgrounds. It was well worth the drive (~2 hours from Bungendore) and the Milton Village Motel where we stayed was great. We shall be making this another annual event.

***The Milton Town Band drum photo was taken at the Lake Tabourie Museum...OMG, this place is fabulous and if you get the chance stop in***

LOVED the Treasures you found & your last 3 x pics are AWESOME....You should FLICKR them....You might get some interest from a publication....Never know....!

Well I must away....Have a GREAT weekend....!!

@TamarahHi Tamarah, Ooohh.. maybe I shouldn't advertise the Swap Meets too well, you will clear them all out by the time I get my sorry $$se out of bed..tee hee

Thanks re, my finger, I have been explaining to the kids that I may lose my finger, India thinks that I will be on TV or something if it happens. I told her we should keep the bone and make a necklace or pickle it and keep it on the mantle piece..he he

As long as my surgery is not over the weekend of the Queanbeyan Swap Meet I will be right :)

Have a great weekend also..

p.s. I had to check what TGIFF meant, and I totally agree :)

Bye, Tamara
