Cash mob

Eden’s 31st Cash Mob dropped by Eden Antiques, Collectables and Old Wares. It was a fantastic trip down memory lane for some, while others found new treasures. You will find everything from candle stick holders to lip balm, an old vintage kid’s car to crystal bowls. If there is something in particular you are looking for Jason and Eric will try and source it for you.

Jenny shopped today thanks to Roses Property Management, Eden Realty contributed to Sophie-Ella, Nicole and Chelsea’s shopping, first time mobber Elaine along with regular Sharon are off to the Golden Ocean Chinese for a meal, Eden Spa and Beauty’s voucher was won by Catherine and Sophia will treat herself while shopping at Eden IGA while Viviene and Janet are buying themselves something new thanks to Simply Irresistible.

With Corey on the grill a delicious morning tea was enjoyed at Eden Fish and Chips. Chris had made some home-made melt in your mouth Greek treats which were popular with a coffee. Thanks for opening early for us. If you didn’t make it on Saturday don’t forget to call in and support these two businesses. The next Cash Mob will be Saturday, September 8, at 10am.

Wyndham trivia and regifting night

Book your table now for the next big Trivia Night in Wyndham on Saturday, August 11 by calling Yvonne on 6494 2443. Entry is $10 per person with a maximum of eight per table, or just find a spot on the night. Raid that piggy bank and bring along some gold coins as well for the fun games between rounds.

This event is going to have a “regifting” theme where you pass on an unwanted gift at the door towards the winners prize and in return, you receive a ticket in the draw for the fabulous lucky door prize filled with the best of Wyndham’s products and services.

The only rule is, do not go out and buy a gift, rather “regift” and pass it on!

Proceeds to the Pretty Point Bridge Fund.
