Good things/Flea Market Finds/Giveaway

Yesterday I promised more about my finds at the Ballarat Super Southern Swap Meet 2010 and I thought I’d share one of our finds ... and offer it as a giveaway.

But I didn't buy it for me. I have some recollection of someone's blog with a post about how they wanted a picnic basket and here I was faced with five! In fact offered the whole five for $10, but took just one for $5!

But do you think I can remember whose blog I was reading? Of course not!

So here's my way forward to sending this little darling off to a new home.

The giveaway is limited to people in Melbourne or Ballarat(or have a relative/friend etc in either of those places) ... this darn thing weighs around 500gms so I don't want to mail it! (PS I'm happy to wear a red carnation and meet in a crowded train station to hand it over ... this isn't a crazy stalking thing!)

The first person (who meets the Melbourne/Ballarat thing) and who posts a link to their blog about wanting a picnic basket will be the lucky winner.

If that doesn't happen, Mr H will draw a random name of the lucky Ballarat/Melbourne winner.

The giveaway will end Monday 8 March (because of the long weekend) and because I won't be around to finalise this. Mr H will draw the winner Tuesday 9 March.

I'll remind people every day of the giveaway and a post on any day will count.

Good luck everybody.

PS If you're looking for more Flea Market Finds pop on over to Her Library Adventures.

I have been having trouble with my computer and leaving comments and this is now the 4th time I have tried... wish me luck!
I do love a good find amongst trash and treasure markets and whilst I love the picnic basket, and very generous, please don't add me for the giveaway as I already have one stashed somewhere at my parent's home and it would be wasted on me.
Good luck in finding the right person!
