Parsimonious, Minimal, but not hopeless… Walkabout 6

Just returned from a sumptuous wonderful beautifully presented meal at the Armidale Bowls Club.  What a wonderful surprise.  It has been a full on week.  We blew a tyre on the caravan on the way here from Currabubula – no surprise I suppose considering the load we had on and the fact that we had forgotten to inflate the tyres.  Anyway we carry an extra spare so no drama there and we have camped at Armidale showgrounds for a week during which Alan cleaned and sorted his auction buys and I did a bit on the Proposal Defence… all leading up to the so-called Swap meet and my meeting on skype with my supervisor.


About retrocentricaussie

We are a pair of ageing 'gypsies' who find junk and sell antiques, especially objects from the art nouveau/art deco years and old and well-loved tools. We also occasionally buy antiques as well!! We haunt clearance sales, garage sales, charity shops and sometimes dumps. Lately we have even been to a 'proper' auction. The thrill is in the chase for good stuff at prices we can afford and still sell the items on at a profit sufficient to support us. We recycle what other people don't want anymore, we find new homes for nice things. We sell at markets and antique fairs, swap meets and wherever else we can find. Our clientele are mostly ordinary people who want something they can afford that will enhance their quality of life. We are especially pleased when generation Y buy from us. It suggests that appreciation of quality and good design is still part of our modern aesthetic.
