Today The Shopping Sherpa and I indulged in a Frugalling Fiesta TM, kicking off at 8am at the YMCA biannual garage sale, followed by 6 op-shops and a market. We collapsed into a cafe (Chocolate Olive, Colbee Court, Phillip - highly recommended) at about 2 pm, dehydrated, hungry, broke and very happy.
Video cassettes courtesy of The Shopping Sherpa who got them from a friend who was chucking out her videos. Three taped from TV (Henry V, The Committments and some episodes of Drop the Dead Donkey), and the set of The Life of Birds and The Planets. All to be watched, binned or handed on as the case may be. The documentaries will go to my brother who loves documentaries, too.
FREE - Glass of wine added in celebration.
4 cassettes. Tom Jones, Shakespeare's Sister, Nat King Cole and 10CC for the car.
10c each Vinnies, Phillip.

Three part reels knitting-in-elastic and 3 pairs sock equivalent of vintage Patonyle. There's enough for one full pair, and some odds and ends of a colourway I already have odds and ends of, and other bits but it's essentially 3 pairs by intention.
