The Breadman came straight home from work and took a nap and The Bean was resting on the couch, so I announced I was going to the booth for a bit. I ended up being gone about four hours! I went to several yard sales and found Lara at my booth (!) so we shopped around a bit at my store and at her store. Plus I did take in a bunch of new things and reworked the booth. I thought there would be a lot of yard sales, but there weren't that many. Tomorrow looks like there will be a LOT, but not sure if I will go or not. I'm saving up for next weekend - NWA Largest Yard Sale.
I just found a few tings, but sometimes that is just the little bit of a high that you need to get through the day. I also bought a vintage metal medicine cabinet with a mirror that I cleaned up and put straight in the booth.
I paid more for those than I would have at a yard sale, but I just could NOT leave them behind. SO CUTE. I might, and when I say "might" I mean I don't want to, but I might sell one set. [I DON'T THINK I CAN DO IT.]
This old crock was only 25¢. I have no idea what it is or was, but any old piece of crockery is coming to my house when it is a quarter. It will end up at the booth or the Farm Fresh Sale.
These frames aren't anything special, except for the fact that I got thirty of them for $2.00! I've been cutting apart an old set of Children's Encyclopedia's (they are musty and worn and not in any condition to sell as a set), so I think I will put some of the cute old graphics in these frames. The opening is only about 3" square. I framed a picture of a frog and I might add old game piece letters that say "FROG" on it. Maybe?
The last yard sale that I went to had nothing that interested me and I was ready to leave, but the traffic was lined up because a big bicycle race was coming through. So, I just kept walking around and digging under things on the tables. I spied fringe so I pulled out this adorable little boy's vintage Western shirt. Isn't it just TOO cute? I also bought to little boy's 1980's IZOD sweaters and two sets of Hulk Hogan PJ's from the 1980's. (The sweaters and PJ's are in the washer, so no photos. Sorry!) I don't usually buy clothes, but vintage kid's clothes = awesome!
I hope the sales have started up for you too!
