Trawl for treasure at this very special fundraising sale
Let's face it. We all love a bargain and the best spots to unearth some pre-loved treasure are almost always our local car boot, garage or jumble sales. While these delightful pop-up flea markets manifest in all sorts of shapes and sizes, a very special one that should definitely be jotted into your weekly planner is the upcoming Royal Western Australian Historical Society Jumble Fundraiser.

Established in 1926, the Royal Western Australian Historical Society is one of the state's foremost heritage organisations. This fundraiser is one of many events that are held each year by the Society to raise money for supporting the important work they do.
Taking place at Stirling House in Nedlands, the Society's headquarters, the jumble sale will purvey a wonderful assortment of goodies donated by its members including hats, scarves, costume jewellery and other accessories. There will also be little ornaments, small plants, jams, pickles and definitely plenty of other surprises. Please note, however - none of the items offered for sale are from the Society's collections.
In conclusion, if you're partial to the quirky charm of jumble sales, this event is definitely one that you won't want to miss. Not only will you discover all sorts of delectable goodies on the trestle tables set up for the big day, but you'll also be contributing to a very worthy cause - the Royal Western Australian Historical Society.
