Book Description

'Discover if there's a secret fortune in your attic.' - Yours

All that stuff you usually throw away isn't rubbish, it's a new beginning! If it's broken, we show you how to fix it; if it's past its prime, we show you how to give it a stylish revamp for next to nothing; and if it's in good nick or a valuable antique but you just don't want it any more, we show you how to turn it into hard cash with our complete guide to selling on eBay, to dealers and at car boot sales.

You'll never throw anything away again - and save pounds into the bargain - with this super-easy guide to repairing, transforming and selling everything around your home. Don't miss that hidden treasure in your home. This is the perfect book for the Make do and Mend generation.
