Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

The very good news is ....Book Sale Sunday !!

Karen from Welcome Bay

While we are now still in Covid Level 2, the Tauranga Rotary Book Sale at Harvard Way Mount Maunganui cannot be open Friday 5th or Saturday 6th March.
But since we will drop to Level 1, we will definitely be open on Sunday 7th March from 9 am until 5 pm, and also the following weekend, Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th from 9am until 5pm.

What a great opportunity to come and restock your bookshelves, while also helping worthwhile causes in your local community! If you have been here before, you will know it is well worth a visit, because we have 1000s upon 1000s of books. It is really easy to find your favourites since the nonfiction is sorted by topic and the fiction is sorted by author!! We also have jigsaws, and games, cds and dvds and art.

Hope to see you there!
If necessary, please contact Ann Pritchard on 07 543 5350.
