If you are so inclined and still interested....Here is a link to a bunch of photos from the Barn Sale aka The Farm Fresh Vintage Market. Lots of cool JUNK everywhere! Over 1200 people drove all the way out to a tiny community center front yard and scored some serious JUNK. Can't wait for the Spring Show. Well, I can wait, because I am tired. But, I am looking forward to it!

What is a monkeybox?
When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.
