Kim joins me on the show this week where we talk about our recent visit to the Mill Markets at Daylesford, Victoria.
This market had lots of very cool old stuff that we discuss during the show, which inevitably leads to a rant about designed obsolescence.
We finish off with a little bit of our philosophy about buying quality items and repair them if they break.
Some of the cool old things items we talk about are;
- Cast iron clothes irons
- Hand sheep clippers
- Jaffle Maker
- Hand Beater
- Hand Drill
- Singer Sewing Machine (hand and foot operated)
- Tin snips
- Vinyl Records (Ben had never seen one)
- 21st Century TV Annual
- TV chairs
- Butter moulds
- Soda Syphon
And probably a few things I didn’t list. I am sure you will enjoy it.
Now for episode 100. We are asking you all to send in voice mail questions via the speakpipe widget below so that Kim and I can answer them in the episode.
They can be about anything as long as the focus is on sustainable living. Please record something, even if it is feedback about the show. We want to make the next episode really special and memorable.
Don’t be shy, we would love to hear from you. All you need is a PC, laptop, notebook, tablet, or smartphone and record your message. It is as simple as that! Don’t forget to play it back before sending to ensure it is audible.
So, until next episode, stay green and keep keen!
