Bitter Cold Finds




After yesterdays all day rains, a cold front followed on its heals. It
really was only in the 50's today, but the wind made it feel finally like
winter. So after my morning cup of coffee, I looked at the dirty
floors, the piled up laundry, and the inch of dust that covered every
nook and cranny of my house, and decided to go yard sailing instead.

There were only 2 sales this morning, so I would be home in plenty of time to
do that" I can't wait to clean thing." So with my travel cup of coffee, I
headed out. Both sales started at 9am. I was at the first one at 9:15,
and I was it. The poor lady was freezing and not one person had stopped by till
me. Great for me, I picked up a brass chicken, a wonderful old wooden
framed mirror, in excellent shape, a large crystal candy dish, an old
outside "come to dinner now" bell, and two glass globes. I never have
enough of those! A quick $10 and I was in my car headed for the next
sale. Once again no one had ventured to this sale either, so I picked
up "The Twelve Days of Christmas" ornaments and a dozen silver snowflake
chargers and coasters. A great day in all, and I still had coffee left
for the ride home. Oh. Now I have to tackle the household chores.

Speaking of mirrors, do not forget Vintage Re-Style this week.

Hey Dona - I came by earlier but didn't have time to comment...
Looks like you did pretty good. Weather never seems to keep folks away from the sales around here. There are some DIE-HARD buyers here, and they don't care about the weather. Lucky you! Vickie

Hi Dona ~ I have been so pissed lately...I haven't been able to get into your blog. But today, the computer Gods were on my side!!!

Looks like you did very well, even in the cold. Which...by the way, it is only 20 degrees here...brrr!

Hugz,

Sometimes the rain, cold and snow are the best times to get out. Less competition. Way to go!
