Jumping out of bed early in the a.m., anticipation of what treasures might be out there. That giddy feeling ushers in the beginning of yardsale season that you die-hard fans like me can relate to.
My sister and our friend, Susan, got up bright and early on Saturday a.m. to hit the Bridgemill neighborhood sale in Canton and it was so much fun. They were looking for different things and I was along for the ride. Taking pics and seeing what was out there.
Now here is a fixer-upper opportunity for someone. I did see it got snapped up after we passed back by. They were asking $20 for this whole set, but it had a broken leg on the table that needed fixing, as well as some rickety chairs. But, really what a deal for all of this vintage stuff.
Funny story at this house. We stopped here and started looking around. Some other people were there too and they said that they couldn’t find anyone who was minding the store. No one would come to the door, but they had all this stuff out. Some things were priced and most were not. He left his money in the front door. My sis and Susan found a few things they wanted, so we came up with a fair price and left it inside the door too. We were laughing over that one! First time I’ve ever had that happen.
So, did you think I wouldn’t buy anything?? Well, I sure don’t need a thing, but I did score this cute tall pair of shoes for $1. For that price, I figured even if I wear them twice a year, I’ll get my money’s worth. I’m not crazy about high heels anymore, but for a special occasion, maybe. And this pretty dress was $2. I think I’ll wear it with leggings and flip flops, could be very cute for summer. Here I go again, buying more black and white. I can’t seem to stop myself.
That’s it for this week. I may not get out there every week and surely won’t be buying any home stuff, but when I find clothes and shoes this cheap, I can definitely afford that. Renee and Susan will be working on projects and want to go yardsaling more, so hopefully we’ll hit a few more neighborhood sales this season.
