Yesterday I noticed a yard sale that was located two miles from my house, started on Wednesday and started at 5:30 in the afternoon. What a no brainer!
They had a list of unusual things and since it was super close and late in the day ( I am not an early morning yard saler) I decided to go. The main reason I wanted to go and hopefully be first in line was this jewel in the rough:
This old Hoosier cabinet was listed in the ad for $25.00. I honestly thought it was a mistake since these are usually priced much higher even though they are often in states of disrepair.
I got to the sale at 5:10 and there was already one person in the garage shopping around. I didn't see the cabinet, so I asked the man running the sale about it. He looked at me and asked if I was from a certain neighboring town. I said no that I lived close by. "Oh," he said. "Someone already emailed to say they would be here and they wanted it."
I really wanted that old cabinet!
I never, ever thought about emailing about it though. Never! Darn it!
He did take my number and he said if they didn't show up tonight, the cabinet was mine.
But, I know they came for it - who wouldn't?!?!?!!?
I know it had issues - but it would have been perfect on my front porch to hold all my gardening and outdoor junk.
Oh well. I did buy one super cool thing there for $5.00, but I haven't taken a photo yet. I have thrifted three things this week that I have yet to photograph - I will leave you with a tease until I show them. Shells, tea and Popsicles. Curious yet?
