Annual Bywong Car Boot Sale

The annual Bywong sale has come and gone for another year....
(Playing the Rocky theme song... da na na...) Kade with his massive blowup boxing gloves
It was so big this year they even had the clowns...
and the most massive scones ever for $3 each with cream and jam.
We did not intend on buying any furniture until we saw this. An oak witness box that came from the old Canberra Courthouse. It will make the most fantastic bar don't you think? $200 smackeroos
 
It's funny as the lady who delivered it to our house asked me if I used to live in Canberra as she recognised me. Apparently she worked at the local supermarket before we moved 11 years ago. Small world. No I didn't recognise her..haha
Of course we came home with a few smalls...Dutch Pokerwork Tray $2...
Pear's Shilling Cyclopaedia c1913...
with a movable Southern Hemisphere Star Chart...
and the most amazing lithographs, purchased from the local Rotary Stall for $1.
1880's Starkey Sydney Torpedo bottle (missing the head) $1...
Miss Muffet cup $2...
Large Dunster Castle transfer ware mug $1...
Enamel Push Sign and old wooden die ($5 and $1)...
Old cigarette cards $5...
Casserole dishes x2 ($4)...
Dingo Flour sack 50 cents.

So there you have it. Did you stay to the end?  I know it was a very long post.  Have a great night and don't let the bed bugs bite.

Hey Tam, yep Monday's come around pretty quickly. Luckily for me I don't work (in a paid capacity i.e.) until Friday. Slave labour here at home though. Ha-ha!

That witness box will make an awesome bar and I love the push sign and Miss Muffet tea cup too.

We have a box of cigerette cards (Anth's Grandad's) must dig them out...the Dingo Flour mill logo is an icon here in the West btw.

Have a good week Tam x

So many nice things there. Looks like a great day too. I went to a boot sale on the weekend but not exactly like this one. There were four cars there!! Yes FOUR!! A little disappointing I must say. Looks like the prices were good for you too. $200 is pretty good for the witness stand. Love it!

There is something special about old seasoned wood. I like the bar and the Dutch tray. It is indeed a small world. I am constantly amazed by how many things come around in the end.

The witness box is just too cool. Not surprised you guys played the clowns. Wouldn't a fairground clown be awesome to have in your home! What are your plans For the flour sack? Xxx Katherine
