Thrifting at its best and most delightful

Christchurch has this amazing system to deal with peoples trash. ONE part of it is as you go to “the tip” with your trailer load of “rubbish” you go through/past a recycling area. This recycling area has the usual bottles and paper, they also have a big shed to off load anything that is re-usable; be it electrical, parts out of mower, car or bike, toys, furnitures, kitchen things… anything! So where does this go? THE SUPER SHED!!! Early on a Saturday morning you will find the best deals.

Bring on: 5 wooden backless deckchairs (now fabric hunting) plus two deck loungers (sorry photo to come) $1 EACH!!!
