Don't get caught without the essential Garage Sale Guide this summer!

Before you set off to the op shop, garage sale, boot sale, auction or flea market - and definitely before you start trawling on eBay or Gumtree - GET THIS BOOK!

Collecting on a Shoestring has the colour pictures and values of more than 1800 household items you're likely to come across at a garage sale, from secondhand clothes and glomesh bags to crockery, old bottles, comics, tins and cameras.

Armed with Collecting on a Shoestring (it's a soft cover A5 book so it's easy to carry around), you'll be able to decide on the spot if something is a bargain that needs to be instantly snapped up, or whether you need to the tell the vendor he's dreaming.

Prices on eBay and Gumtree can be wildly wrong either way - too often the person selling just looks at something and makes up a price they'd be happy with, but that doesn't mean it's what you should pay! Everything has a current market value and with a copy of this book you won't be paying over the odds - or missing out on the bargain of the century.

Here are just some of the things you'll find the prices of in the book: retro picnic sets, scales, old magazines and comics, dresses including wedding dresses, handbags, shoes, hats, costume jewellery, oil tin tops (some are worth $200), old cameras, cups, saucers and plates, jugs, vases, books, Royal Doulton, kitchen canisters, money (old Aussie banknotes are worth quite lot more than their original value), old car manuals, soft toys, sunglasses, old perfume bottles, buttons, records, old sewing patterns, clocks, ceramic figures, old tools, tins, teapots, sewing machines, movie posters, used oil tins, diecast toys and even unopened packets of food which can be very collectable. Who'd have thought!
