I can't believe I added so much happiness to that ugly little dark space.
My friend with a both across the aisle from me posted her sad face in front of my empty spot.
I brought everything home and sorted it out into two piles - Junk Ranch and Donate. I think I ended up donating over half of it to Goodwill. I was just over so much of it. I kept the best things to take to the Junk Ranch and to put into a future booth.
I still have a few things over at Lara's booth. The store posted this fun story this week. I had made magnets out of old funny yearbook photos from the 1950's. I cut out names of students and added them to the magnets. I purposely never put the right name on the right photo.
But, this lady was digging through them and she was drawn to "Marie", But then as she looked a little closer - it was her SISTER Shirley! Photo was taken in the next small town over in 1959. Isn't that amazing that she happened to be in the store, found the magnets, looked through them AND actually found her sister? (This is also the third item of mine that has made the store page. Not bad for items being sold on the down low.)
I was working in the other booth this week when a young college girl walked in, squealed and grabbed a pair of roller skates that Lara was selling. She sat on the floor, put them on and rolled away.
She was SO happy! It was the only item on her wishlist that day and they fit perfectly. It was truly a Cinderella moment for her.
I've been thrifting a bit.
This is a Lego model of a Meyn Rapid Plus Breast Deboner made for Tyson Foods. Now, I know this is about a weird of an item as you can find. So, I am either an idiot or a genius for buying it. I think I am a genius. But, only ebay will tell for sure. I am sure you will be shocked to hear that there aren't any others anywhere online.
I thrifted this vintage musical snowman this week.
And this two foot tall Bethany Lowe bottle brush tree. I also bought a red tinsel tree. It's not vintage, but it looks vintage. And, a red tree in Razorback country is a sure sell.
I've been making things.
A pedestal bowl made out of half of a globe. I coated the inside with the most beautiful turquoise glitter. It is completely unusable, but it is SO PRETTY. I need to try to seal it, but that takes the shimmer and shine out of it and that is just NO FUN.
I gussied up an old globe. It's a Pinterest project, which I usually avoid. But this one was a good idea. The seam was coming apart, so I added on the pennant Washi tape for a little happiness.
The Junk Ranch is in twelve days. But I set up one day, so that's eleven. Then there's load the car day, so that's ten days. Then there's a motorcycle rally in town that we attend for two days, so that's eight days. Then, of course, I need to go grocery shopping and errand running, so that's seven or maybe even six days. Holy crap. I'm out of time! :) I am actually pretty much ready to do it. I have priced SO much Christmas, Halloween and other things that I am ready to be done. Whatever will I do with all my time then??????
