frankie magazine is an excellent piece of media. I heart it very much. So when I saw they were having another frankie and friends garage sale, I knew I’d need to get there. I had one particular task in mind that I needed to achieve. I cannot tell you the specifics of my mission, as it forms part of a surprise for a friend, but rest assured I did achieve it and it was most sincerely awesome. (What a task tease I am).
When I arrived I had butterflies, I was that excited. I walked briskly down the street, not really sure what I was looking for but figuring I would know it when I saw it. And indeed I did. I saw small groups of people milling about, and, as I got closer, tables piled high with what can only be described as treasure and also magic. I made a beeline for a table with books (duh) and promptly started hyperventilating. There were too many good things and not enough eyes to look at them all! What if I missed something spectacular?? What then?? You’ll be glad to know I calmed my farm and soon started accruing many bargains.
And they weren’t even the best thing that happened! I saw Pip Lincolne of Meet Me At Mike’s sitting on a little brick wall under the shade. I decided to go over and say hello. Pip patted the bricks next to her and we sat in the shade and chatted about various things from cameras to ethical clothing. This was lovely for obvious reasons (i.e. QUEEN PIP) but also because it was really stinkin’ hot and I needed to sit down and regroup from all the awesome vintageness. So that was nice.
Do you enjoy garage sales? What bargains have you scored? I would highly, highly recommend the frankie and friends garage sale if you are around for their next one. This was the first I’d managed to get to and will definitely be back.
