The very first yard sale we went to, was one of those un-advertised ones and I had to adjust the route a little, because it took us exactly 8 miles down country roads to get there. After a mile or two, you start to wonder if you missed it, or maybe it was an old sign? Then just when you think it might be time to make a U-turn, you see a little sign tacked to a tree with an arrow. For all you know, it's old or maybe it was for a party or something other than the yard sale, but it gives you hope and you go on. The last sign we saw said, "Almost there!" and I knew then, that we were on the right path. Finally a left turn down a dirt road and past homes ranging from neat and tidy cottages to trashy trailers, small pastures with cows and rocky mountainsides, we found the sale and it did not disappoint!
This lovely lady had everything from vintage tablecloths for 75 cents apiece (you bet your patootie I bought a bunch!), to vintage linen hand towels for 10 cents. She had some milk glass Fire King dishes for 25 cents each and a freebie table that was full of stuff that shouldn't have been free (not that I was complainin'!).
Everything you see in the pictures was from her sale and I paid a mere $7 for the whole lot! If I could not find any other sale after that, I would have still been happy!
In my previous post, "A Day in Pictures", we went to the flea market, had a picnic at the state park and played at the playground, came home and barbecued some pork loin while the girls did a "study" on balancing things on a board, and then when it was time for bed, there was absolutely no fussing or whining about wanting to stay up later. That was a very good day!
