Are you reasonably sure you know the area where you live? Most of the nearby towns? Most of the roads that take you to said towns?
You know, the area you've traveled for (ahem), 40 some years?
Yeah, we thought so too.
Dh and I started out bright and early Saturday morning (aka yard sale day), hit a few sales, and stopped at our favorite restaurant for breakfast. This usually concludes the yard sale segment of our weekend.
But since the pickings were slim this week, we decided to hit a few more a little further out.
And we did.
And it was good.
Then on the way back we spotted a small sign..."yard sale this way" and a cute little arrow. Alright, maybe one more. It might be a good one. So we followed the arrow, then at the next intersection we followed that arrow, then a few miles later at another intersection we followed that arrow too......Geez, this must be a great sale. The people having the sale were bringing in customers from miles around!
Finally we found the sale!
Baby clothes, an exercise bike, and old tupperware.
Oh, goodie, this was so worth it.
At this point we should've packed it in. But wait! Another cute arrow! And off we went again.
Anyway, we DID find some good sales. So, we were happy, tired, and out of money when we decided it was time to head home.......
Wow, turns out we live in a beautiful area full of woods, mountains, windy country roads that lead to other woods, mountains and country roads, and an occasional small town with intersections leading off in 3 different directions. What are the odds of us 'always' choosing the wrong one, and what are the odds of loaning your GPS to DD this particular weekend? Aaargh!
Yes, eventually, after apparently driving in circles, we came to a welcome, familiar, sign, welcoming us to a town we'd heard of. At that point I wouldn't have been surprised to read "welcome to Kansas".
We live in Pennsylvania.
Anyway, thanks for reading my saga. Without further ado, my treasures....
Grabbed this big, beautiful shelf for hanging in the bathroom. This baby is heavy, and built by the Amish. "Look ma, real beadboard!" Not sure what color it will be painted. Stay tuned!
Every week seems to have a theme, something you run into at every sale that week. This week's theme is "Hooks on Wood"
The first ones are pine, the second ones, teak.(I think)
Another birdcage! Dh found this one, and he's very proud of himself!
Love this collection of old bottles. $2.00 for all.
Rose Candle thingie
And...my country themed, bill organizer with clock that I have turned into my country themed, kitchen plan meals ahead and stick recipe in appropriate slot, organizer with clock.

Thanks for visiting and leaving such sweet, funny, and "helpful" comments. I'm having such a good time!
