Yard Sale Junk....errr...stuff!


Well, it was time for the annual yardsale again in the small town where I cleaned up last year. We headed out early and it seemed there was not gonna be a jackpot this year. It was getting hot and me and my hubbs were getting hungry and we were just about to head for home. There was one more sale on the map, it was wayyy up a back road and we decided at the last minute to go.
Below is a pic of some of my haul. We paid just $5.00 for that red cupboard! The grain scoop, a mere $1.00. The wicker carriage was $45.00. That was the most expensive piece but I soooo wanted it for display in my shop. We spent about $63.00 total. But we just missed a flax spinning wheel by minutes :(
This woman had a barn FULL of stuff that we couldn't get to so I gave her my name and phone number and told her to give me a call when she could un-earth those treasures!

Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe holiday filled with fun, family and friends...oh, and fireworks! It was hot, HOT here, still is. We are having a MAJOR heatwave here in the northeast with temps reaching 100 degrees in some areas.
Yesterday I spent my afternoon on a float in the pool. Today I'll spend my day working inside with the A/C full blast!!!
