I heard about Moving On from a relative who is also setting up home. It sounded interesting so I thought I would give it a try and sign up for their weekly e-mail. It’s a pretty nifty system-they e-mail you on a Thursday to tell you which houses are selling their content that weekend. You can check out the pics and if you like anything, go along to the sale. It’s not an auction, so you just have to get there at the time it starts and pick what you like! There are some yucky things, but some real bargains too 🙂 This house in Fish Hoek has some beautiful old tables which could be spruced up and look just fab. The sale is on Sunday and starts at 10am, so I would suggest getting there 15 minutes before.
How it works is that each person gets a lucky number (so there’s no incentive to get there super early!). One by one you go into the house and ‘buy’ whatever items you like. They usually are relatively well priced items and if you have a good eye, you can pick up some great finds.
