My unit for some strange reason has no clothesline. It's one of those things you don't notice when you inspect the property, but once you move in you realise something is missing.

Other units in the same group do have them:
If you look closely, two can be seen in this photo (another shot taken by the plumber when he was on the roof). So who knows why mine doesn't have one.

Earlier this week I found someone in Ballarat selling a line still in its box on Ebay:
Brand new, for less than 30% of the retail price. I snapped up this bargain. I still needed to get the post kit, which is about $90. But look what I found on clearance today:
It is even the same colour!


  1. I always say I can't keep house without a clothesline---or fresh lemons!! Have a good Sunday--nice find hugs, Julierose

  2. Wow! Sometimes you can just be in the right place at the right time!

  3. Lucky finds, indeed. Now it's your own and you can take it with you when you move! I guess your previous occupier couldn't tell the difference between a drying rack and a cat! Took one and left the other - oops!

  4. Everything seems to be coming together for you. The ikea kitchen bench is great to work at and I'm sure a custom made one will be even better. Everyone needs a clothes line and you were lucky with your finds.

  5. Serendipitous. Or is it that brick working hard!

  6. And the Bargain Hunter of the Year Award goes to ........ (I really need to take you shopping with me)
