I turned up the same time when SM & Sim arrived. Shoppers picked up list of households taking part in the garage sale that day at the first house where Jalin officers set up a little table for enquiries. This was the first house...SM bought some knick-knacks already...
Sim took this pic of me half way down the long stretch of townhouses on SriHartamas 2, I was holding up a hard cover cult classic, bought for RM2 and a set of rather exquisite necklace & earrings for RM 20. My shopping bag was already filling up.
From Margaret's house, she painted some of these beautiful porcelain.
Other lovely things at Margaret's.
Then I went to buy this dress from Doreen who was selling her clothes at Janet's
It looked kinda good too with my white shirt underneath, don't you think?
This is actually the front of the dress with lace & embroidery but I decided there and then that I would wear it as the back. The `back' which is now my `front' is a v-neckline. I have been wearing it since Sunday, love the big skirt and the two pockets.
Guess how much for this fully-beaded flapper-potential look? Bought it from Janet at RM 28...from RM 30.
Got this Phantom Of Opera inspired mask at the last house, RM 5.
Jalin Realty will be running monthly garage sale in the same neighbourhood (different households), next one up on Nov 11th, Sat, so look out for notices here :)

KMP Garage Sale and Food Fiesta II…
STOP PRESS! Shop and eat for a good cause!
What is it?
Kechara Media and Publications (KMP) is a Publishing Company is a non-profit organization. In order to publish, it needs a lot of capital upfront, which it can then recoup from sales of its products. However, the initial burden is quite heavy. So, we the writers decided to hold a Writers’ Day at our home in Bangsar to help raise some funds. We will be holding a GARAGE SALE (great selection of books, toys, branded goods and other good stuff; both old and brand new) – including hand painted glass candle holders by Paulyne!
We will be serving all day BRUNCHEANNER (breakfast/ lunch/ tea/ dinner) with a spread of scrambled eggs (made by Sharon), toast and coffee/tea, pasta (made by Susan), cup cakes (donated by Shirley as well as hand made by Jamie) amongst others! And of course, Sean will be providing intermittent massage services again! It’s also just a good reason to hang out and catch up with friends J
There will also be a range of KMP Dharma CDs/DVDs/Books for sale.
Why are we doing it?
We are raising funds for KMP to produce its many publications, which will benefit lots of people. This event will be open to our friends and family and their friends and family. It’s not being publicly advertised because it will be held inside our house so we don’t want to invite trouble J
When are we doing it?
10am – 8pm on Saturday, 7 October 2006
Where are we doing it?
369, Lorong Maarof, Bukit Bandaraya, KL 59000 (near to Bangsar Shopping Centre). For those of you who don't know, it's a terrace house, about seven houses down from Bangsar Shopping Centre with a wooden sliding gate.
