Meatworks II

I forgot to mention garage sales in my Meatworks post....

The people I live with look out for ads in the paper for upcoming garage sales around Broome, especially within Demco estate, hoping to grab great bargains.

And they do. It's amazing the stuff people get rid of. Our Italian leather couch was purchased days before a Demco sale took place (got to get in early!). The couple had decided to rent out their house, fully furnished. But instead of leaving their nice furniture, they were transporting cheap stuff up from Perth and selling off the good stuff as it would cost too much to move. Very strange. The couch was an anniversary present from wife to husband. Well, it's kind of good they're not attached to their 'stuff', but that doesn't mean much when you can afford everything.
