First Furniture Trip to Winterfell

We took our first load of furniture to Winterfell in June. We hired a little truck for the 2hour trip and it was FULL to the brim. But even with a full truck load the house still looks sad and empty. We have a long way to go, but thats alright because it should be a process. I like the idea of starting with a few pieces of furniture and building on them.

I stopped at Molong at a magical secondhand place. This place is packed with goodies and antique dust. Ben or Stuart (he answers to both) is a lovely bloke who said, “The more you buy the cheaper it gets”. I love this motto. My almost 14yr old daughter Rose was almost hypnotised by the place and i had to drag her out in the end. Rose usually hates shopping, but i think i may have just discovered my junkyard partner in crime. She was also able to get a good deal on some old pocket watches, so i may need to take her along next time to help with negotiations. That said, the prices are so fair here that i would feel right asking for a discount.

    Finding good treasures is the ultimate entertainment! For me at least, there’s nothing better. I love antique mirrors. They instantly brighten up a space, and the frames are gorgeous—like artwork… so much nicer than anything you buy new.

    You’re lucky you have a whole house to do! Lots of excuses for shopping trips and estate sales!

      I LOVE antique mirrors and frames! So ornate and detailed. And really, i wouldn’t have been able to find anything near as beautiful and as reasonably priced if i’d gone looking for something new.

    Love the flask and shot sized collapsable cups. What’s in them I wonder 😉
