Help us name our spring sale!

Hooray! It's time for Two Bucks 'til Wednesday's Spring sale!

The sun will be shining, the freesias blooming, the birds singing, and you'll be coming along to the Mount Hawthorn Community Hall on Saturday the 26th of September.

The sale begins at 2pm and will be chock full of lovely vintage dresses, jackets, cardigans, skirts, blouses, tees, jeans, shorts, scarves, shoes, belts, bags and jewellery. And of course, everything is priced between $2 and $20 and all goes to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (http://www.acrf.com.au)!

What could be better than cheerfully-priced charitable vintage goodies in a pretty park on a spring afternoon? Not much, that's what!

The only thing is, we can't think up a suitable name for our upcoming sale. We need your help! Post your suggestions in the comments section and give us a hand... (Past names have been "Winter Wonderland", "Joyeux Anniversaire", "Thrills are Cheap", "Sweet as a Plum", etc)

See you at the sale, we'll have photos posted up very soon so stay tuned...

Since we started up Two Bucks a few years back, we've been blessed with having lovely people get in contact with us and help us out. It means so much to us and without those people we wouldn't have come as far as we have and raised as much money as we have for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation!

One such act of generousity was just last week, from a lovely lady named Helen who owns and runs Hey Joe Retro, a vintage clothing and collectables shop on South St about 10 minutes drive out of Fremantle. She's been really interested in the Two Bucks sales since I first went in there a couple of months ago and got chatting to her about good op shops to visit.

Then, on my last visit, she donated four big bags full of amazing vintage clothes and shoes she had no room for in the shop (seriously, the place is a crammed-full treasure trove). The stuff she gave us was wonderful (and will be on sale at our spring sale at the end of September), and all of us were so touched by her thoughtfulness!

Thanks so much, Helen!
