What is your greatest treasure find to date?

My creepy oval shaped mirror I bought for $5. It was covered in webs, dust and rust spots! Made from some kind of metal frame - maybe tin - the glass is pefrect though and the gold coloured edge has a leaf pattern along the top, bottom and side edges.

Know of any hidden sources of trash, treasure or bargain finds in Brisbane?

Lots! I will post all my links in the discussion forum but location as soon as I have time to sort them out. Hoping to find some hidden gems around Brisbane from other Scavengers posting their favorite treasure spots too.

Interested in hosting, organising, joining or creating your own scavenging event in the Brisbane area?

All of the above! I like thrift store shopping and visiting retro style second hand stores. Live on the Northside, but willing to travel far and wide for a look-see at different locations. If you live near a cluster of thrift stores or second-hand stores or near fleamarkets, please consider hosting a meetup from your home or a coffee shop to meetup and bargain hunt as a team.

Do you pledge to add at least one 'undiscovered' source of treasure to the meetup group discussion board upon joining?


Which area in Brisbane are you from and how far and wide can you travel?

Northside. Will travel up to 30 minutes away by car or an hour or so by public transport. It's all for a good cause. Besides, public transport restricts the amount of 'treasure' I can haul back home so it is my preferred method for scavenging!


Almost everything I buy is second hand and reusable. I love shopping at thrift stores and manage to visit them often. I find uses for all the crazy things I buy...eventually. This leads to me hoarding usable stuff such as material, boxes, beads etc.

What DngnMstrss is saying about this Meetup Group

Will be a rewarding experience for all!
